We will provide each child with a hockey jersey.
Need equipment? WHA can provide loaner equipment. We will have a limited amount of hockey equipment for families to loan for Rookie Camp or you may pick up your own hockey equipment at many sporting good locations in the West metro area. If you would like to loan hockey equipment, please answer "Yes" to this question in the registration form.
A $150.00 deposit is required for loaner gear and will be returned when the equipment is returned.
Participants also need to register with USA Hockey, see link on sidebar of this page!
