What kit do you need?
1. Standard PE kit with layers for winter
2. Sturdy trainers
3. A hockey stick. We have plenty you can borrow but a good starter stick can be bought from major sports shops for under £20. The top of the stick should reach the child’s waist height.
4. Shin pads. Football shin pads are fine.
5. Gum shield (highly recommended but not essential). One that you mould at home is fine.
