Hockey is one of the most popular sports in North America, and every year more and more kids want to get involved. Luckily, there is a lot of hockey training equipment that will not only help you with your game, but will protect you as you learn. At Great Skate Hockey Supply Company, we have everything you need to start training like a hockey pro. In fact, we sell equipment from all the major brand names in the industry, like Bauer, Reebok, CCM and Easton.
Hockey skates are different from ice skates you may have used in the past because they are designed for speed, durability, and flexibility. When searching for hockey training equipment, look for skates that are made from lightweight material that conforms to your foot. Beginning players may want a skate that is slightly heavier with a thicker toe stop for better control.
Anyone playing goalie is going to need a few different pieces of specialized training equipment. The goalie must stop the puck from entering his net at any cost, including by blocking it with his body. We carry affordable but reliable and protective goalie gear such as helmets, face guards, gloves, and chest plates. Most of the goalie training equipment we stock is available in adult and junior sizes.
You also have to find a stick that you’re comfortable with in order to learn the game. For hockey training, you may want a Kevlar-enhanced stick such as the Easton Stealth RS Grip. These sticks have slip-free grips and are more durable than the average stick.
