New to Hockey

Are you, or your child, new to Hockey?


Before going out on the ice, your player will need:

  • CSA approved helmet with cage
  • Hockey gloves (no holes)
  • Jock (for boys) or Jill (for girls)
  • Hockey pants (should cover to knees)
  • Shin pads
  • Elbow pads
  • Shoulder pads
  • Skates (sharpened)
  • Hockey stick (see length info below)
  • Practice Jersey
  • Neck guard
  • Hockey socks 
  • Mouth guards (Optional. Please research what is best for your child.)

Before going to the rink for hockey, parents need to review/complete the SDMHA parent requirements

Water Bottles:

Bring a water bottle.  Please put your child's Last Name on the bottle in large letters so your child can easily find it and if it is left behind on the bench coaches will know who to return it to.

Length of Hockey Stick:

Please be sure to cut the stick to the correct length. In general, the butt of the stick should come up the nose of the player when wearing skates, and the blade is on its tip. See: Hockey Stick Length Guide

New Skates:

A new pair of skates MUST be sharpened before using them.  Don't forget to break them in or have the heat molded so your child doesn't end up with blisters in the first ten minutes of hockey.
