What do I need to play?
As well as a good attitude and enthusiasm, a gumshield and shinguards are essential for training and blitzes!
If your child is trying hockey for the first time we have sticks that you can use for your first couple of sessions to test the waters. Once they decide they are continuing to play, it is really important they get a stick that fits them! Andrew & Dave in G Sports can assist in this.
What do I wear to a blitz?
Kids should wear black tracksuit bottoms or shorts, and a maroon hoodie or polo, this doesn't have to be the club ones. Shinguards and mouth guards are compulsory.
