What does my son/daughter need in order to play Quicksticks/hockey?    

Mouthguard & shin pads are the two essentials.  A hockey stick if you have one otherwise one may be borrowed from the Club at the training sessions.  Left hand glove to protect the hand.  Appropriate sports clothing for the season - layers and waterproofs/sun cream.  Bottle of water.  Non-marking indoor trainers for Quicksticks / ordinary trainers or astro trainers for hockey.

Where can I get a mouthguard, shin pads and hockey stick?  

Any good sports shop.  Shin pads: for younger children football shin pads are fine, for older children full hockey shin pads should be worn.  All kit is available under Club Information but may also be bought from the STX website with a 15% discount.  Use this link to access the STX UK site:  http://ukstore.stx.com/sticks?utm_source=Wimbledon&utm_medium=Banner
