Hockey shops always have a big boost at the end of the summer holidays as players start to think about changing equipment for the new season. All hockey shops will keep good selections of the sticks, balls, protective equipment and clothing that will be needed. Hockey shoes feature high on the list of priorities, as different surfaces can require alternative types of soles to prevent slipping, and give maximum grip.
The greatest choice however will be in the hockey sticks that the shops can offer. The combinations of materials, lengths, weights, shapes and prices can seem daunting, but the specialist hockey shops will usually always have experts on hand to help. Carrying bags and replacement hand grips are two of the most popular accessories sold by the hockey shops.
Hockey shop lists of other equipment are usually pretty comprehensive and will include hockey gloves, helmets, elbow & shin pads as well as a great selection of shorts, shirts and socks. Like most sports, hockey is addictive for the participants, and although itís a game that requires a high level of fitness, older players can move into less strenuous divisions so they can keep playing the sport they love.
