__WARM BOOTS.  Not dress boots!  Boots that will keep your feet warm while standing on a frozen pond.  You will also be walking about a mile to the pond, with your gear.  Wear good solid boots. 

__DUFFEL BAG.  You don't need to bring your entire hockey bag but you DO need a canvas bag to carry your pond gear to/from the truck.  

__SLED.  If you have a sled, bring it.  Makes life easier.

__HAND & FOOT WARMERS.  You will need these.  Make sure they're in a big Ziploc and you can find them easily.  

__EMERGENCY BLANKET.  I am talking about a foldable wind-proof blanket that you can use as a spectator or while waiting on the sidelines.

10 Commandants of Pond Hockey




1. No cotton or polyester/cotton blends next to your skin. This includes underwear and socks. Polypropylene longjohns are
excellent because they wick moisture from your skin but keep you insulated at the same time. Because cotton doesn't wick perspiration away from your skin, it quickly becomes moist and cold in cold weather, leading to rapid loss of body heat. Cotton’s great for hot weather but it will contribute to hypothermia in cold conditions.




2. Dress in layers.  Many thin garments with lots of dead air between layers to trap heat are better than a few thick ones.




Wool/polypropylene or polypropylene longjohns. (Longsleeve top & bottoms.)




Polypropylene sock liners and wool socks (one or two pairs.)




Remember -- DO NOT lace your skates tight.




Hockey Girdle or Hockey Pants that will protect your hips and tailbone.




Snowboard pants with a polyester/spandex ratio of at least 3:1




Layering Jacket – these are usually thin, of poly/spandex, and hold in warmth.




Padded shirt or shoulder pads




Hockey Jersey




Down parka (rated to -40 degrees) or a reflective blanket when you are stationary.




Balaclava or a neoprene face mask




Beanie for helmet that covers your ears and polypropylene gloves for inside hockey gloves




3. Know When to Quit in the Cold. If you become wet, immediately change into dry clothes and seek warm shelter. If you feel cold, it's because you ARE cold and your core body temperature is falling. When this happens, the brain redirects blood away from the extremities to the vital organs, and the feet and hands become cold and the heaviest boots and gloves won't help you feel much warmer. Only adding layers and drinking something hot will speed recovery.




4. Don't forget your head. An uncovered head rapidly radiates body heat away.




5. Always remember to take the liners out of your boots and skates to allow them to dry out between games.




6. Keep well hydrated but avoid caffeine. Caffeine is a diuretic and reduces blood volume, making it more difficult for the body to maintain a normal temperature.




7. Cold conditions are often very dry conditions. Use lip balm and Vaseline on your cheeks and nose.




8. Chemical hand warmers are excellent items to have, but aren't substitutes for wearing layers.




9. Eat well. Keeping warm in freezing temperatures requires the body to burn calories at a great rate. High-carbohydrate snacks will stoke the fire between games. A thermos of hot soup can really make the difference between an enjoyable day on the pond and a cold and miserable one.




10. Avoid over-tightening skates. Even with a couple of pairs of wool socks on, your feet will still get cold if you've cut off the circulation to them by squeezing them into skates that are too small to accommodate the extra socks.




Don’t over-tighten skates or boots




Wear a skull cap under your helmet




Wear long underwear and many layers of clothing




Use Vaseline or other protective grease on your face




Wear polypropylene liners under your gloves




Bring parkas and jackets to the pond/wear them when not playing




Wear face protection (Balaclavas)




Keep moving


Arrive on ice prepared to play.
