What is modified hockey equipment?
At its core, modified hockey uses adapted equipment and rules to make it easier for players to learn the game and improve their skills.
One of the most common modifications in hockey is using airflow balls and foam pucks instead of traditional hard rubber pucks. These softer materials reduce the risk of injury and make it easier for players to handle and shoot the puck. This is particularly important for younger players with a different strength and coordination level than more experienced players.
In addition to using different types of pucks and balls, modified hockey equipment may include smaller goals, shorter sticks and a smaller playing area. These adaptations make the game more accessible for players of different sizes and skill levels.
Modified hockey equipment is often used in school and community programs, providing an inclusive and safe environment for players to learn and enjoy the sport. Using adapted equipment and rules, modified hockey inspires more people to participate in the game, boosting physical activity and encouraging social interaction.
