Alejandro, you need a lot of equipment to start the sport. Some local programs and some sporting goods stores also offer starting packages. A good place to find equipment is at Play it Again Sports or an equivalent. You will need:
- Skates
- Shin Guards
- Athletic supporter (Cup)
- Hockey pants
- Shoulder pads
- Elbow pads
- Hockey helmet with a cage
- Hockey gloves
- Hockey jersey and socks
- Mouth guard

The Greater Providence Youth Hockey Association and Rhode Island Sports Center both have learn to skate and learn to play hockey programs
