Safety First!

MANDATORY EQUIPMENT


CSA-approved hockey helmet with cage


Ball hockey or soccer shin pads


Hockey gloves


Team T-shirts will be provided and are to be worn during all games. Additional clothing can be worn under the team T-shirt.




ADVISED EQUIPMENT


Protective cup (Jock or Jill)

Elbow pads (We play on an asphalt surface)


Plan for bad weather and pack a light-weight jacket



WHAT ABOUT HOCKEY STICKS?


The hockey pad is an asphalt surface.


Players may use ANY stick option.


Plastic sticks are recommended. They tend to be cheaper, last longer and slide better on asphalt.


Sticks must not be broken in any way and must have at least 1.5 inches of height to ensure they can not penetrate a regular face mask.



WHAT ABOUT GOALIE GEAR?


The HMBHL will provide goalie gear for all divisions. 


All goalies must wear their own helmets.


Goalies may wear their own gear if they want to. 


THE FINAL CALL REGARDING GEAR


The referee and league executive reserve the right to determine if any equipment is unfit for use in the HMBHL.


A safety first and common-sense approach will be taken.
