Required Equipment

Updated Sunday February 11, 2018 by WCIHL.

WCIHL requires each player to have the following equipment:
Helmet and full face guard – Must be HECC registered, the proper size, and complete with all the required straps and buckles.

  • 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
  • Crotch Protector – Yes, for girls as well as boys.
  • Mouth Guard 

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.


and several other internet-based hockey stores provide sizing charts and customer service lines. 

WCIHL also offers an equipment rental program every season to make hockey affordable for everyone! A $100 check is required to rent your player's gear. We will hold this check, and will return it to you once the equipment has been returned at the close of the season. If you neglect to return the equipment, we will cash the check as reimbursement for the gear.
