Equipment Information

Understanding what is needed for hockey equipment and how to dress your child can be complicated!  Below you will find suggestions regarding renting equipment, buying equipment and how to dress your child.


Full hockey gear and a hockey stick are required for Hockey 1 and 2. If you wish to rent gear schedule an appointment once you have registered to secure your gear before the day of the class as there are limited gear fitting times and you do not want your child to miss out on their first class.  Please make sure to bring a copy of your registration confirmation to the fitting. GEAR IS AVAILABLE TO RENT FROM OUR RENTON and KIRKAND LOCATIONS ONLY.

Renton Programs: Players must make an appointment for a gear fitting by emailing
