Hockey Equipment


Hockey Equipment


When most people think of hockey, they think of ice hockey, but there is also roller hockey, better known as street hockey. Both versions require a lot of skill, agility, and speed. Both types of hockey call for six men teams playing against each other, with the ultimate goal being to put a hard rubber disk, or ball, into the net more often than the other team.

Each hockey player carries a stick. The stick is used to push the rubber disk, also known as the puck, up and down the rink. Street hockey is usually played with a ball instead of a puck. These same sticks also tend to get used when a fight breaks out, which usually happens during every game. To avoid potential injuries during fair play and heated battles, players wear a great deal of padding and helmets. Goalies are even more geared up than the forewards and defensemen. Ice hockey is played on ice skates, while street hockey is played on inline skates. Even the referees wear pads and guards against potential injury.

Most of the equipment used by players can be purchased at any sports specialty store. You can pick up hockey equipment suitable for youths up to adults, and used equipment can be found at resale stores and at online auctions. Most ice skating rinks will also offer hockey training for kids, and many high schools and colleges offer competitive hockey leagues for youths. A more recent development is the growing interest in women's hockey.

No matter where you buy your equipment, make sure of a proper fit, and if you must have the items shipped, looked for free shipping offers. Often the ability to get free shipping will more than pay for any pricing difference you may find between one retailer and another.
