So are you just talking about equipment or about starting to play hockey? I started playing ice hockey a few years ago at age 27 in Calgary, and if you want some startup advice then to fine tune your skating Rex Tucker has a great beginners power skating program, with one good time slot at UofC on a Sunday afternoon (the rest are during regular work hours or very early morning). And so it's not just all drills you get 10 minutes of 4 on 4 'posts' play time. at the end.
And if you're looking to join a league then Hockey North America (HNA) runs a very solid beginners intake program, where they'll take all the beginner sign ups, sort them into a few teams, run 10 or so weeks of beginner practice sessions + scrimmages, then drop you into a beginners division. For both programs you also get some scrimage time at the end, so you know This league plays in the northern half of Calgary, so if you're in the South it's a different league you want but I don't know too much about it.
That's how I started and it all turned out extremely well.
