Top 10 Tips for New Ice Hockey Players


By improving your general strength, speed, balance, coordination, agility and explosiveness — for example by working out in the gym, doing running training or playing another sport — you will become a better ice hockey player.

Equipment - What you should and shouldn’t do

  • When you’re starting out, as when you’re taking up any new sport, it’s a good idea to borrow equipment or buy used (or at least inexpensive) kit until you decide that ice hockey is really for you.

  • When choosing an ice hockey stick, it’s important to take your height into consideration. If a stick is too long or too short, then this will put unnecessary stress on your body. A specialist store should be able to determine what the best stick is for you.
