New to hockey... have question?
You are not alone, most of us have felt this way. Depending on what division your child is playing in (Discovery, Timbits, Novice, Atom or Peewee) there are Directors you can reach out to for information. If you navigate to the "about us" page in the above menu, the director's contact information is there. I would also recommend taking some time and look through newtohockey.com. A great site for those who are new to hockey or just looking for a refresher as you've been away from hockey for a little while.
If you are starting out in Discovery and Timbits you can usually find a Starter Set at Canadian Tire, Pro Hockey Life, SportChek,etc.
You can also use this Printable Equipment List for reference to see what you will need to suit your player up for the season. Team will provide game socks but it is recommended that you also get practice socks as kids wear holes in the pretty quick sliding on the ice. Yes that is normal... both the holes and sliding. Kids will be kids.
That information can be found by moving your mouse over the Parents tab in the above menu. From the parents drop down menu you should see a tab for how to get dressed or you can click here to be redirected.
The is a new site and the FAQ page is new as well. The more questions we get from parents the more we can add to this page. Please reach out to the communications director who will put you in touch with the proper person to answer you questions. Your question and answer could end up here.
A great source for information is Hockey Canada. They also have a very extensive FAQ page. Click here to see if their page may have the question and answers you are looking for.
