Hockey equipment is expensive! What if I’m not sure if I want to play yet and want to try it out first?

We have a gear bank of equipment that you can borrow for one event or for a season with a $50 check deposit, and you can rent hockey skates at the rink. If you want to borrow our gear, please e-mail us at info@dwhl.org with your approximate height and weight and when you need it.

Once you’ve decided this is the sport for you, consider going to a used or new sporting goods store (Play it Again Sports or Players Bench). They usually have good equipment at a decent price. You will need shin pads, a hockey garter belt, socks, hockey pants, shoulder pads, elbow pads, a jersey, a helmet, stick and skates.

Our New Player tab has more information that will help ease you into the sport and get you started.
