At a minimum, a helmet is absolutely required. A Facial cage or Visor is strongly recommended. However, other protective equipment is allowed and encouraged (such as shin guards, hockey gloves, etc.). It is wise to wear shin guards due to inadvertent sticks, and also possible falls due to cracks that are common in Pond Hockey.
No Goalie equipment will obviously be permitted.
In the event of an injury, that player will not be replaced by a non-rostered player.
