How to get dressed? Equipment?

I'm finally going to make the step from simply skating with a puck and stick to actual games. I was wondering what all equipment is required, and how to get dressed? So far I have:

-Helmet/ cage
-Shin guards
-Socks
-Shoulder/chest pads
-Elbow pads
-Gloves
-Stick (duh)
-Skates (duh again)
-Pants
-Practice jersey

When I put my shin guards on, then my socks, what do the top of my socks connect to in order to keep them secure and from sliding around?

How to get dressed???.. really???

well.. this is how I get dressed..


dont eat 2 hours before a game if I can help it..
walk in the rink with 2 sticks always, and leave 1 in car. I use all the same curve, and stick with that curve.
open hockey bag
get naked.
put on socks for feet( I keep fresh pairs in my bag)
put on Under shirt ( i wear underarmor type material)
put on undershorts w cup "built in" with velcro on thighs for socks to stay up
put on shin guards
put on hockey socks over shinguards
put on Hockey Pants
put on skates
clear tape ONLY(because it flexes with your leg/knee) for hockey socks to hold everything tight, I tape around just below the knee, and then tuck the tongue of my skate under my shin guards, and clear tape around the leg in that area..
put on shoulder pads
put on elbows.
put on jersey
I wear a half shield, and before every game I apply defogger on the shield..
Put on helmet
stretch in the locker room. (dont waste your time and my space stretching on the ice)
go out on the ice.. get your inside and outside blades warmed up.. shoot a whole buncha pucks in warmups. skate forwards and backwards .
Play Hockey.

It is a legit question. I just started not that long ago and had the SAME question.

Does the narrow end of the sock go towards the thigh or skate?
Socks before shins?
Pants before shins?

I obviously figured it out...lol, but you should have seen me trying to mock it all up in my room.

Call me crazy but I do things a bit differently.

1. jock
2. socks (pull above knees)
3. pants
4. skates
5. socks again (this time I pull them down to my ankles)
6. shin guards
7. pull socks up over shin guards, attach to girdle/jock, then tape socks

The reason being, that I prefer the way my shin guards feel when attached over the front of my skates. It's a little extra work, but it's a preference thing.

Yes, definitely invest in a jock and cup (they usually come together). The jock should have velcro tabs or garter belt clips on it to keep your hockey socks up. Otherwise you have all the stuff needed.

As for how the gear all goes on, practice at home a few times. Plenty of people will tell you their specific order but that doesn't mean your gear will go on the same exact way. Do it a few times so you get an idea of how it works and if you need to change anything. I probably would have looked hilarious in the locker room if I never did a test run at home and just followed the first order posted on one of these threads.

Personally, my order is:
Jock
Pants
Socks, slid up to my thighs
Skates, then bunch socks on top of skates
Shin Guards, over tongue and laces of skates
(Shin guard straps to keep shin guards secure, optional. You really should use tape or straps to secure shin pads)
Pull socks up to cover shins
Pull pants down and attach socks to jock
Pants up, tie them up
Shoulder Pads
Elbow Pads
Slash guards (on wrists)
Helmet
Gloves

I prefer the shin guards on the outside of the skate tongue...

So I WAS putting on like this
Jock
Shin
Socks
pants
Skates

I found it a royal pain to tie the skates and stuff the tongue under the shins

so I found out my pants have velcrow and a zipper on the inside of the thighs so now I do it like this

Jock
Socks (anywere for the moment)
Skates
Socks around ankles with tongue under
shins again with skate tongue under
socks extended over shin guard and velcrow
pants.

Shoulders
elbows
and the rest

I do it the same way, I don't use edge socks but I don't have any problems pulling regular socks down over my shins.

I think the biggest variation in getting dressed is in skates/shins/socks, depending on whether you tuck your skate tongues under your shins or leave them out.

Same order than NJDwoot for me. Just keep the skate guards on your skates when putting the pants on

My edits:

At Home:

- NEVER eat within 2 hours of playing
- put on long-sleeve dri-fit t-shirt at home, put cotton t-shirt to wear after playing in bag
- put on bauer orange hockey boxers with jockstrap sewn inside, pull on sweat/track pants over (make sure jock cup is in hockey bag)
- run through gear list to make sure all items in bag

At Rink:
- bring in both sticks (would have to take off skates to get other stick in car)
- open hockey bag
- take off track pants, sneakers and cotton socks
- put on skate wigwam thermax liner socks for feet
- put on shin guards
- put on velcro straps over shin guards - why keep buying shin tape?
- put on hockey socks over shinguards
- put on skates (i have feet that need extra time to adjust to wearing skates, so the sooner I get them on, the better. I tie the laces moderately tight knowing I will have to tighten them after the warmups).
- put on Hockey Pants (I put on the pants before I take the cotton skate guards off so that I do not cut/damage the inside of the pants).
- the rest same as above...[/QUOTE]

This is another advantage of using velcro straps, you can put them on loosely under the hockey sock, then after you tuck in the skate tongue you can push the shin pad down and then tighten the velcro strap, and place the hockey sock back in the right position.

Get velcro straps and see my posts below, will resolve this part of the operating order issue for you

what I meant was, bring 3 sticks. Leave 1 in the car incase the backup breaks.. basically a backup backup..

no velcro straps because the ones ive used dont flex as well as the clear tape..and when they do they become unvelcrode(if thats a word)..

also, not everyone has pants big enough to put their skates through. Or not everyone has the unzippys on the legs.. so thats why I didnt suggest it..

Undershirt/Jock
Skate socks
Hockey Socks
Skates
Shinpads
Pull Hockey socks over or up over the shins. A couple pair of my socks don't stretch enough to go over my shins.
Pants
Elbows
Jersey
Shin Tape
Helmet
Gloves.

Clear tape is definitely where its at. I can't stand the feeling of those velcro straps on my leg. Tore the ones that come on my ST16s off after the first ice time.

Should you always bring two sticks to a game?

Yes, if you are playing in a league some guys may not like to lend you their backup, also, it may not be the curve you are used to.

If you are playing shinny, it si still a good idea but not a necessity as you are less likely to break your stick.


And all the ways of getting dressed are bang on. I prefer

Jock, stocking straps (old school, I hate velcro), shinpads, socks, pants, skates, tape shinpads on inside of tounge, shoulderpads, elbow pads, jersey, helmet gloves, then fall down!!!!

1) Hockey shirt
2) Jacques Strap
3)Hockey pants
4)Hockey shinpad socks
5)Hockey skates
6)Shin pads
7)Shoulder Pads
8)Elbow Pads
9)Jersey
10)Helmet and Gloves

Put my shinpad socks on before my shin pads, but before my skates. I've always found this MUCH easier, to tie your skates rather than have your shinpads obstruct your vision and get in the way of tieing your skates, the most important part of putting all your pads on(second to your Jacques Strap) And I wear my skate socks into the rink.

Yes. I bring two sticks whenever I'm getting on the ice, sometimes it feels stupid but it would be much worse if you get out on the ice (for a game, clinic, open hockey, whatever) and break one a few minutes into the icetime.
