INFORMATION FOR NEW PLAYERS:
Players require full equipment, as below, and will need to bring their own jersey to wear. Timbits are given a jersey to wear throughout the year for all their ice times, but this jersey will not be available for the first few sessions. Novice and higher will require their own practice jerseys to wear for their practice sessions.
Required equipment list:
CSA approved helmet and full-face shield
BNC approved neck guard
Practice jersey as noted above
Athletic cup and support
Novice and Atom aged players now require mouthguards.
Skates should be properly fit for the player and not too big. Improperly fitting skates are a big impediment to skating development. Depending upon the brand of skate, due to differences in the sizing scales, it is not uncommon for a skate that is one to two sizes smaller than the players shoe size to be a proper fit (ie player normally wearing a size 13 runner may typically fit a size 11 skate) - some extra attention during the sizing of new skates will payoff with a much more enjoyable experience for your player!
