Buying and Selling Your Gear

  • Whitey Bensen (recommended) - Specialty hockey store in West Haven, CT that offers a wide selection of new and used gear
    • Keep an eye out for an email in September about Whitey Bensen Weekend - members of the SOM Hockey Club get 10% off gear and staff are on hand specifically to assist club members
    • You can sell your used gear back to Whitey Bensen for a gift card, which can then be sold to other SOM students through the equipment exchange doc
  • SOM Hockey Club Equipment Exchange - Google doc that facilitates the purchase of used gear from other SOM students
    • You can sell your used gear to other SOM students by posting it at the end of the hockey season
  • Traditional sporting stores and online retailers, e.g. Dick's Sporting Goods, Sports Authority, Amazon

Maintaining Your Gear

  • Air out your gear after every practice and game
  • Adjust your helmet and re-tape your stick as needed
  • Optional: sharpen your skates (you can do this at Whitey Bensen)
    • You likely won't need to get your skates sharpened if you're only skating once a week at practice

Storing Your Gear

  • If you don't have space at home to store your gear, you may leave it in the SOM locker room or designated storage area in the garage
