One of the first things you’re going to have to do when taking up hockey is get the proper hockey equipment. Due to minor hockey rules children require more equipment than adults, so in this guide I am making a section for hockey equipment for kids, and a section for hockey equipment for adults.

Equipment Checklist:

  • Helmet with full cage
  • Mouth Guard
  • Shoulder Pads
  • Elbow Pads
  • Hockey Gloves
  • Jock (or jill for girls)
  • Hockey Pants
  • Shin pads
  • Hockey socks
  • Skates
  • Jersey for practice
  • Hockey stick
  • Hockey Equipment bag

Other Recommended Accessories:

  • Neck Guard
  • Skate Guards
  • Water Bottle
  • Stick Tape
  • Shin Pad Tape

Where Do I Get Equipment?

Start with used equipment if you're not sure your child will like hockey.
