Now that we have your attention...looking for FREE gently used gear???
If so, our Equipment Manager, Andrew Parish, is your man.
He will be at our rink here in Easton this Sunday, September 16th from 9am to 1pm for anyone who wants to see if there might be any used gear in the equipment room that their players need or could use. During this time he will also be excepting used equipment to repurpose if you have any gear you would like to donate.
Before we get into what equipment is available to you, we are missing, and in need of return, three (3) Mite/Squirt Goalie helmets that didn't make it back to the equipment room. If you have them PLEASE contact Andrew or myself as soon as possible.
We currently have excess player pants, pads, and limited skates in "good" condition (no helmets) FREE for the taking.
There is also a lot of goalie gear if any of our goalies are looking for the next size up or just in need of something, the following Goalie gear is available;
One set Left Blocker/Right Glove
Right Hand Gloves (x5)
We are also asking all of our Members NOT to leave piles of used gear at the rink. Please make arrangements with Andrew and he will happily collect any gear from you that can be repurposed and give you a donation letter/receipt.
So Your Kid Wants to Play Ice Hockey - Where Do You Start?
Make sure they like to skate, because as a hockey player they will be doing lots of skating. The Talbot County Community Center (TCCC) Ice Rink offers public sessions throughout the year. Bring your child and some of their friends to a couple of public sessions to see if they like skating, they might actually bump into some of our hockey players.
Once your child has decided they want to learn how to play hockey start them off with skating lessons at the Talbot County Community Center (TCCC) Ice Rink. The TCCC Ice Rink offers a Learn To Skate (LTS) program for all levels of skating, starting at 3 years old up to adult. TCCC provides three full LTS programs (six weeks) and one Mini Session of three classes. To see all of the programs offered by the TCCC Ice Rink go to their website at TCCC Skating Programs
Once they are able to skate we offer two options (depending on age):
1. We offer our very own Learn To Play (LTP) program. This is an option/program designed primarily for players who want to start playing hockey. This program emphasizes hockey skating skills and stick handling with an introduction to the game of hockey. The LTP program is for children ages 4-9 years old that are able to skate. If your child cannot skate, it is HIGHLY recommended that they take a Learn to Skate session. ESHA hopes to run three 6 week sessions throughout the 2018-19 hockey season; keep an eye on our website and Facebook Page.
2. Or, once they have learned how to skate, it is time to join our Easton Ice Hawks. Go to our website and register or contact our Registrar directly at
. All Kids 8 and under can participate in our program (again, they should be able to skate) and can join at any time. For players aged10-18, we hold tryouts in late April / early May for the upcoming season.
