Louth Hockey Club

Protection and Equipment



Although hockey is a non-contact sport, the ball does sometimes fly about at very fast speeds and sticks are swung in all directions, so you can expect to pick up the odd bump and bruise!

So it's best to take a few precautions such as wearing shin and mouth guards.

Apart from that, if you get a stick and shoes you're ready to go.

To have a look at the different types of basic protection, pass your mouse over the head of the player in the picture above and then over her glove, shin, shoes and stick and when you left click on each a 'hot spot' will take you to that particular information section.
