Stick and Puck questions

Silly question, but I don't know the answer so I'll ask.....Does your rink have pucks on the ice for stick and puck sessions or do you need to bring one to practice with?

It might depend on the rink. The one stick and puck session I've been to the rink didn't provide pucks. If you're not sure, bring one or two with you. And marking them in some way so you know they're yours isn't a bad idea either.

Depends on the rink, one around here as a sign that you must bring your own because of people stealing them. The other provides them.

You dont have to really mark yours. usually if I bring 2 I'll just grab 2 before i leave.

Those were mine. My Grandmother gave them to me just before she died.

Well played, sir.

And I'm sorry about your grandmother.

Why would you take pucks like that to the rink in the first place?

Most if not all rinks will provide the pucks. This is why it's called "Stick and Puck"
If they don't provide the puck, ask for a discount because you have to bring your own puck. Once you do that, they will pull out the puck for you.

???

Does the rink need to provide a stick, too?
I think it's called that because the free skate prohibits sticks and pucks on the ice. This way everybody knows the difference. IMO it's a good idea to arrive with everything you need to practice so there are no surprises (includes tape and screwdrivers, too).

I'm going to say that it depends. There are a few places I go to for stick and puck sessions and they never provide pucks.
