Other Hockey Equipment
Some other hockey essentials
While protective hockey equipment is designed to protect players from serious injury, there are other items of equipment that all hockey players usually wear or use. This includes articles such as hockey equipment bags, hockey jerseys, and hockey socks.
Equipment bags are basically essential items of hockey gear as players need one large carrier to store and transport their equipment in. Many new models of hockey bags now come with wheels n the bottom of them to make things easier for you. Most of these bags also come with various compartments for your skates, wet uniform, and personal items.
Hockey Jerseys are a part of the uniform, and are always worn in competitive games so the players, fans, and officials are able to tell who's who on the ice. The sweaters should be lightweight and keep you cool while playing. It's important that they fit you properly so you have a good range of movement in your arms. Most teams have several sets of jerseys, including practice jerseys.
Hockey Socks are also a part of the uniform used to identify players. They are also used to cover your hockey shin pads and legs. You need to make sure your socks are long and wide enough to fit over top of your equipment. Your socks may not last forever as they will eventually get holes in them. However, if the holes aren't too bad, you can use them as practice socks. Don't forget to wash your socks and jerseys regularly to keep them clean and fresh.
After wearing your hockey equipment week after week, it can get quite sweaty and worn down. However, you can keep it in tip top shape by cleaning hockey equipment you use regularly and getting it repaired when it starts to fray. This will keep the equipment smelling fresh and in good working order. It's a good idea to get your equipment repaired as soon as you notice it deteriorating as you can probably save it from getting worse. This will let you use your equipment longer. The most common types of equipment repair are to the gloves and skates. You should also be able to get most goalie equipment repaired as well.
