Players wear full protective equipment like hockey players, but use a unique stick and face mask. Ringette players wear long pants and a padded ringette girdle instead of short pants and socks like hockey players (although hockey pants and socks are allowed).
Goalies use regular hockey goalie equipment but use a unique catching glove.
* Hockey pants, socks and jock/jill can be substituted for ringette girdle and pants.
Note: Richmond Ringette provides equipment loans to new players.
