Getting Ready

Whether you are new to hockey or an experienced player, you have to prepare yourself for a new hockey season with lots of hockey equipment, such as skates, sticks, a helmet, and all kinds of protective padding, to name a few items.  The American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) has prepared an equipment guideline to help ASHA players purchase equipment that is necessary for participating in member hockey programs within ASHA.  Check out the attached link (Equipment Guidelines) which will offer some ideas on what to buy, how to buy, and how to prepare your equipment for the upcoming hockey season.

A number of ASHA teams loan equipment to players to help get them started in hockey.  Contact your local team for information on equipment loan programs.
