Ice Hockey Equipment Make The Sport Fun and Safe
Ice hockey is a sport that requires a significant amount of specialized equipment, but gathering all that you need for casual or serious ice hockey play doesn't have to take all day. It's possible to find all of the ice hockey essentials and more in one stop at Sears.
As a heavy contact sport, choosing the proper protective gear and equipment for playing ice hockey is essential. A good place to start shopping for ice hockey equipment is with the ice hockey helmet. While various colors and styles are available, first shop for the appropriate size for adult and junior ice hockey players. Proper fit is essential to safety. Choose a helmet that provides adequate head coverage and impact protection. A helmet with a cage is necessary for a goalie position while a standard ice hockey helmet is appropriate for other positions. A popular choice is the Bauer brand of helmets, which feature the logos of favorite professional teams.
Next, consider shopping for ice hockey skates. Different from figure skating skates, ice hockey skates offer speed, stability, and ankle protection. As with any shoe, fit is important. After selecting the proper size of ice hockey skate, check for ankle stability and protection as well. There are many different brands of ice hockey skates to choose from, whether you already have a favorite or are still searching for the perfect fit. Ice hockey skates are obviously an essential piece of ice hockey equipment and Sears offers a large array of choices at all price points, including Reebok and Bauer skates.
For practice, it's a good idea to purchase a couple of ice hockey goals and a stack of practice ice hockey pucks. A regulation ice hockey net, such as the ones offered by Champion, is a necessity for both play and practice, and it's true that you can never have too many pucks. Sears offers basic ice hockey pucks, along with sports team specific memorabilia hockey pucks. Additionally, you can choose between regulation size ice hockey goals or junior size for children and casual play.
While ice hockey requires a significant amount of specialized equipment, you don't have to run all over town to gather what you need for the season and you certainly don't need to take out a loan to afford it all. Shop at Sears to gear up for ice hockey season in one convenient location at reasonable prices.
