HOCKEY GEAR 101 | BUYING THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT
Submitted By WebAdmin on Tuesday, July 30, 2019
Staying safe on the ice with properly sized gear  ----- from the OMHA website
Families in hockey understand the feeling that comes with heading to the store to buy a new set of equipment after another growth spurt in the off-season. However, wearing appropriately sized gear is necessary and helps keep players safe and on the ice so that they can continue to enjoy the sport and build their skills. For those new to the sport it can seem overwhelming but it doesn't have to be.

Wearing appropriately fitting gear is the first factor that should be considered when evaluating new equipment to purchase. Using second-hand, lightly used gear is a great way to save money but any equipment should be carefully inspected to ensure it is still safe to wear. Equipment that is in good condition and well-maintained can last for years and serve many players. Comfortable, well-fitting gear helps to reduce the risk of injury and elevates the enjoyment for the player.
 
The most expensive equipment is not always necessarily the best for your child. Plan a budget for what you need to buy and consult with a sporting goods retailer for advice. Many associations offer an equipment drive or exchange for their members to take advantage of.
