A full set of hockey equipment, including tips on fitting the equipment, includes: Helmet, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, pants, and shin pads sections are all good
All helmets must be approved by the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC). Facial protection although not required at all levels of play at Sharks Ice, it is recommend. This shield is either a metal cage that covers the entire face or a clear fiberglass covering that covers the entire face. Proper fitting is a must!
Shoulder pads are generally made of hard plastic, which may or may not be covered in padded fabric. The front should cover the entire chest with the arm piece reaching the top of the elbow pad.
Traditionally elbow pads were designed just to cover the elbow but with lighter materials and a faster game elbow pads have become larger to provide more protection. Elbow pads now look to cover much of the forearm area as well as the elbow. Elbow pads are made of hard plastic or similar materials and covered in padded fabric. When purchasing elbow pads be sure that they reach the cuff of the glove to avoid any exposed area of the forearm.
Gloves are designed for comfort, maneuverability, and protection. The palm is soft leather allowing the player to feel the stick easily. The top of the glove is thick foam padding to give protection from sticks, pucks, and other hazards. Gloves should also be comfortable and allow the player to handle the stick without hindrance. For this reason many gloves have wide cuffs to allow easy movement.
Hockey pants consist of a combination of hard plastic and foam padding woven into a pant shell. The pant should reach from the bottom of the rib cage to the top of the knee. The leg area should be slightly loose to allow movement and the waist should be tight to ensure they are properly positioned.
Shin pads are designed to protect the entire leg from just above the knee to the top of the foot. The front of the pad is hard plastic lined with foam padding inside that also wraps around the back of the leg. Some styles of shin pads have straps to help keep the protection in proper position. If pad seems to shift then hockey tape should be used on the outer socks to keep the pads from sliding out of place.
Composite sticks are made of graphite, Kevlar, and other strong synthetic materials designed to improve power and strength. One of the most important factors that must be looked at is the stiffness of the stick. The higher the flex rating the less the stick will bend. Finding the correct flex for you is a mixture of personal preference, play style and body weight. The next variable to consider is the curve. First you need to determine whether you need a right-handed or left-handed stick. A right-handed shot holds the top of the stick with the left hand and the bottom of the stick with the right hand. The opposite would be true for a left-handed shot. Whichever feels more natural is what you should use. There are many different options when looking at curves; you may need to try a few before finding what is right for yourself. Another important option to consider will be the kick point which is the spot on the stick that has the most flex. This is decided based on play style and personal preference; it will take time to figure out what you like best. The most common kick points are low-kick (such as Bauer Vapor and CCM Ribcor) and mid-kick (such as Bauer Nexus and CCM Tacks). The last variable to consider is the length of the stick. Sticks are made at Youth, Junior, Intermediate and Senior sizes. Youth and Junior models are designed for children, meaning they are shorter and not as wide around as the Intermediate and Senior models. When standing on skates the stick should reach to about your chin (to the tip of your nose if you are not on skates). All sticks can be cut to your desired height if needed.
Skates are the most important piece of equipment a player wears. When looking at skates you must look for protection, stability, and a proper fit. The fit is often overlooked to get more use out of it. Generally you should purchase skates 1 to 1 _ size smaller than your shoe size to ensure a tight fit (This will differ between manufactures and between youth to adult skates). Skates should always be tied tight; not to the point where ones feet begin to hurt, but tight enough to avoid sliding or shifting in the boot. This will also avoid improper skating technique and possible injury.
