Our goal is to eliminate a major barrier to youth hockey, the gear. We also want to provide readily available gear in all youth sizes.


The Young Norq gear program allows newcomers to borrow our gear while their participant is Learning to Play. Kids can quickly outgrow their gear, however, within our program, you are able to exchange the smaller size gear for larger — ranging from youth small to youth large. We also provide this option for youth skate sizes. 


There is a $0 fee to rent the gear for the first 6 weeks. After that point, we ask the participant to purchase the gear and or skates if they wish to continue within our gear program. We simply charge the cost of the gear and or skates, as we are not in the business of hockey gear sales. Lastly, for every gear or skate program sale, the money goes to purchasing another set of equipment which will enable another player to Learn to Play hockey. 

Here's how it works:

1. Your Young Norqs skater decides they want to try hockey (yay!).

2. Schedule your gear fitting- try everything on and test it out for free for 6 weeks (yep, for FREE!).

3. If your skater loves it (which they will!) then after your first 6-weeks, you purchase the gear. If they don't love it, return it to us and you're good to go!

4. As your skater grows out of that set of gear (we know they grow quickly), you can trade up for the next size at no cost.

5. Your skater now loves hockey and has been able to use properly fitting gear at a low cost.


The best part? When you purchase your gear, that money will go directly to funding another set of equipment for the next skater. Not only are you saving money, but you are directly contributing to a community of new hockey players!
