Required Equipment

Updated Saturday January 5, 2019 by WCIHL.

WCIHL requires each player to have the following equipment:

  • HECC approved helmet with helmet- and chin-straps properly fastened and HECC approved full face mask with a chin cup.
  • Skates – Hockey skates are recommended. All braking devices must be removed.
  • Stick – Width of the blade must be greater than 2 inches at its narrowest point.
  • Elbow Pads
  • Shin Guards
  • Hockey Gloves
  • Protective Cup – Yes, for girls as well as boys.
  • Mouth Guard - colored (non-clear)

WCIHL recommends each player to have the following equipment:

  • Upper Body / Shoulder Pads
  • Neck Guard
  • Padded Inline Hockey Girdle


Proper fit is very important, so please resist the urge to let your player grow into his/her gear. Correct fitting gear can be the difference between a great season and several weeks healing from an injury. If you are unsure about the correct size, the people at Play It Again Sports in Nashville will gladly help.
