Equipment - What will they need for Learn to Play?

For Session #1 (Nov 1st 2015 thru Dec 27th 2015)  Players are only required to have skates, helmet with cage, some type of gloves, elbow pads and stick. A full set of equipment is recommended but not mandatory. All Players will receive a jersey which is theirs to keep.

For Session #2 (Jan 3rd 2016 thru Feb 2st 2016)  A full set of equipment is mandatory. All Players will receive a jersey which is theirs to keep.

Selection of hockey equipment is a key issue for players, parents and coaches. When purchasing and fitting hockey equipment, remember two important factors: 1) make certain the player is adequately protected and 2) be sure the fitting allows freedom of movement so the player can properly perform the necessary skills. By carefully considering these two factors, your child will be more comfortable and will better enjoy their participation.

A complete set of hockey equipment can be purchased for a relatively reasonable cost. Shop around for the best values and remember that you need not buy the most expensive equipment. Consider used equipment, but keep in mind the equipment must fit properly to provide maximum protection.

  • Skates: Purchase skates that will fit your child today, with no more than 1/2" allowed for growth. Seek adequate protection in the ankle, toe and instep areas. Improperly fitted skates will hamper your child's ability to skate.
  • Helmet: Must be of a design and construction approved by the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC). Must be sized at the time of purchase to fit properly. The chin-strap must always be fastened.
  • Facemask: Must also be of a design and construction approved by the Hockey Equipment Certification Council (HECC).
  • Stick: Length should generally extend from the ice to the player's chin (with skates on, or to the players nose with skates off). Quality and price differ greatly, so the choice is yours.
  • Shin Pads: Check for proper length so they protect the knee and shin completely.
  • Supporter and Cup: Essential protective equipment.
  • Gloves: Check for proper fit, with good finger and hand mobility. Be sure that the thumb is guarded with a stiff metal or similar shaft.
  • Shoulder Pads: Adjust to fit the individual at the time of purchase. A fiber cap is extremely important in preventing shoulder separations and should extend to the tip of the shoulder.
  • Pants: Held in proper position by suspenders or belts. Pants provide protection for the lower spine, hips and thighs.
  • Elbow Pads: Properly fitted so they do not slide.

Dunkin Donuts 2016 Mug program

We are proud to announce Central Maine Youth Hockey's Community 2016 mug program.  Along with being able to purchase  a mug as a great gift idea or one for yourself, players who sell the most mugs will be rewarded with a cash prize of:  1st Place = $150, 2nd Place = $100, and 3rd Place = $75.

     Mugs are available for $20 each

     Each Mug entitles the owner to a free hot or iced coffee every Sunday during the 2016 (an estimated savings of $100/year) in participating Dunkin Donuts throughout Maine!

     100% of the proceeds go to CMYHA

Mugs will be available after December 15th and we will set the contest for the prizes to end by January 31st, 2016.  Attached is an order form.  The player can collect the money and fill out an order form which the player can turn into the team parent, Melissa Caccamo, or Bert Languet.  We will then get the ordered mugs to the player and a copy of his/her order sheet so they can be distributed to the purchaser.  Bert Languet will have order forms on hand when he is at the rink.


We expect this fundraiser to raise $20,000 for CMYHA!
