Required hockey gear and fitting

I often notice that kids either wear hockey gear that is too big, too small or gear that is not meeting the saftey regulations. Gear that is either too small or too big can cause serious injuries for a player!

Required equipment checklist

  • Skates
  • Shin Guards
  • Garter / Jock
  • Hockey Pants
  • Hockey Gloves
  • Hockey Stick
  • Shoulder Pads
  • Helmet (CSA certified. Sticker must be on helmet!) & Facemask (full face)
  • Practice Jersey
  • Neck Guard / Throat protector (BNQ Certified)

I came across this video, published by Hockey Canada, and believe it is worth posting and watching.
