Typical Field Hockey Gear

Each year we are asked about gear and many times girls show up with the wrong gear or illegal gear.

Here is a list of necessities to be safe and compliant with SDFHOA:

if you click on the item name I have included amazon links so you can see what they typically look like. You do not have to buy the exact one from the links these are for an example.

Mouth guard– can not be white or clear must have color. (MUST HAVE)

Shin guards– can not be soccer shin guards- must be made of hard plastic and cover all the way down to both sides of ankles. Do not– buy sock type or pull on or just padded- basically any shin guard with a foot stirrup strap is illegal. (MUST HAVE)

Goggles-are no longer worn in High School Field Hockey

Cleats– soccer cleats are legal. Softball or baseball cleats are illegal. The cleats can not have a toe cleat. Can also wear turf cleats or tennis shoes.

Field hockey stick– this is really up to you, I can say that most sticks under $75 most likely break and come apart before the end of season and girls end up getting new ones. However, they work and are doable. Just do not get sticks that are flat on both sides because they are for indoor field hockey and do not get sticks with a crook in it because they are for goalies. Your stick should be even with your hip bone when held straight up from the ground. (MUST HAVE)

Stick option- JDH – is offering a discount if interested. This is just a discount and not a fundraiser. 25% off with coupon code- PHS25
