At the same time, don't try to cheat a little by buying them too big so he can grow into them - ill-fitting boots will make learning to skate very rough on him. Headcoach's advice about finding a quality used pair is good.

When picking out a stick, while holding it straight vertically it should come up to his chin if he's in skates, or his nose if he's not.

And you can never own too much hockey tape.
