Equipment Requirements

U7 and U9 (previously Mini-Tyke and Tyke):

Players require some basic hockey equipment and a mouth guard: hockey helmet with facemask, shoulder pads, gloves, athletic support and cup, and elbow pads. Soft volleyball-style knee pads can be used. Hockey sock tape is helpful to keep knee pads in place.


U11, U13, U15 and U17 (previously Novice, Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget):


Players in these divisions require the same equipment along with lacrosse arm/elbow pads and kidney/rib pads. Shoulder pads should have a bicep pad.

Lacrosse gloves offer excellent protection and flexibility. Short cuff hockey gloves can be used, but they don’t offer the same grip or flexibility.


Mouth Guards

Mouth guards are mandatory for players in all divisions and need to be molded at home before use.

Goalie Equipment

Goalie equipment is provided by the Association, except for helmets.  Goalies in younger divisions can use a regular helmet with a dangler throat guard attached.
