EQUIPMENT GUIDELINES FOR SELECTION AND FITTING:
Helmet and Face Mask
Obtain a helmet and mask that provides full facial protection.
The cap of the pad should cover the shoulder.
Straps under the arms should attach securely. The front flap should come down far enough to cover the collarbone.
The straps should remain tight, providing a snug fit over the elbow. Some pads have adjustable straps, some have only elastic straps. When straps become loose, the pad may slip off of the elbow, leaving igt unprotected.
The knee is a primary area of concern for protection. The pad should cover the knee when the leg is straight and when it is bent at the knee. Pads should bend just below the knee in order to conform to the bent leg.
Ankle guards are considered optional equipment. They are recommended, however, particularly for defensemen. The protective part of the guard should cover the top five eyelets on the front of the skate and the inside and outside ankle bones.
Neck Guards are considered optional equipment, however, they can prevent possible injury to the neck area.
Gloves range in price from inexpensive to very expensive. They should have ample room for the fingers and thumb and must not be too snug in the wrist area. Be sure the cuff comes up far enough to adequately cover the wrist.
Sticks come in different lies. The most common lie is a five or six for skaters and a 12 to 13 for goalies. Lie refers to the angle between the blade of the stick and the shaft. The smaller the angle, the higher the lie. When choosing a stick, the entire bottom portion of the blade should be on the ice when the player assumes a ready position. If just the heel of the stick is touching, try a lower lie. If just the toe is touching, try a higher lie.
Stick length can be determined by placing the front, bottom edge of the stick on the ice between the skates. The top of the shaft should touch the player’s face between the chin and the tip of the nose. It should touch closer to the nose if the player is wearing shoes, not skates.
