Yep. Ditto with some of though not all of the House & Church level leagues, same thing with the private schools throughout Toronto. UTS, Neil McNeil etc. Goalie equipment generally supplied, all team members supplied with a jersey but beyond that not much else. If you played in the SHL, NYHL, EHL or THL/MTHL or as its now called the GTHL depending on the level, A, AA or AAA, at minimum socks & jerseys, maximum everything including socks, jerseys, pants, helmets & gloves, and in a lot of cases wholesale rates on skates & sticks. Goaltending equipment same, however, not unusual for AAA organizations to offer that as a perk to any kid with serious talent in order to get him to sign at the AAA level (or back in the day AA as it was called, A & B not nearly as generous with the full gear set-ups').
