Line Creek Ice Arena carries a full line of youth hockey equipment. There are also a few sporting good stores in the Kansas City area which carry hockey equipment, and of course you can always search for equipment online via eBay or other sites.
 
We have some of the best youth coaches in the Kansas City area, and we're always looking for more!
 
Your first step is to contact us. Tell us about your availability, knowledge of the game, and the level of hockey you'd be interested in coaching.
 
Sure! Girls are welcome at all levels, and in fact many of the best young players are girls.
 
Hockey is a sport like any other, and sometimes kids fall and hurt themselves, twist an ankle, etc.
 
However, hockey players are heavily padded, and although there is a risk of injury (as there is in soccer, gymnastics, or basketball), injuries beyond bumps and bruises are rare in youth hockey.
 
Checking is prohibited for the youngest players (Atom, Mite, Squirt, and Peewee), but is allowed in the older youth divisions.
 
Only in line at the concession stand, when we're running low on hot dogs!
 
Seriously, fighting is prohibited at all levels of youth and amateur hockey.
