It is very important that your player has all the required equipment to enter the ice. Player's that are not properly equipped will have to leave the ice immediately and sorry, no 'ifs ands or buts' or 'they have it next time'. No no's are lacrosse cages, lacrosse gloves, bicycle helmets, 1940's leather helmets, etc.

Note: your new player will eventually get a jersey, but no on the first day, they will need one.
Parents, understand that in the U5/U6 program there is always help needed on the ice and please don't assume there is enough help.
