WCOHL equipment exchange in Carp Dec. 16

Special to WC Online

CARP – Registration is already underway for the 2023 West Carleton Outdoor Hockey League (WCOHL), and if your young and growing hockey enthusiast needs some new-to-you equipment, the league is hosting its annual equipment exchange Saturday (Dec. 16) at the Huntley Community Centre, home of Carp’s outdoor rink.

The exchange runs from 10 a.m. to noon.

“As we gear up for the upcoming equipment exchange next Saturday, we wanted to share the current inventory available,” convenors released in a statement yesterday (Dec. 10).

  • Skates: 30+ pairs (mostly for kids five to nine-years-old)
  • Shoulder pads: Approximately 25 (suitable for kids five to nine-years-old)
  • Shin pads: seven pairs – 10″ (3), 9″ (2), 8″ (2)
  • Elbow pads: three adult pairs and one pair for a six to seven-year-old
  • Hockey Pant Shells: five pairs – YXL (1), YL (2), AS (2)
  • Gloves: eight pairs – 8-9″ (3), 10-11″ (3), 14″ (1), 15″ (1)
  • Helmets: None
  • Sticks: None

“To provide more choices for all age groups, we kindly request donations of used equipment, especially for age groups not currently represented in our inventory,” the WCOHL volunteer organizers said.

If you are unable to attend the exchange date/time, you can drop off your donation at each community Centre (Constance Bay, Dunrobin, Fitzroy Harbour and Carp) by noon on Friday (Dec. 15). The Carp convenor will be happy to pick it up.

“Feel free to reach out if you have any questions,” the WCPJ: said. “Also, don’t forget to register for our ODR season – it promises to be an exciting one. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at the exchange.”

You don’t have to live in the village to play for the team, and you can find links to each individual community’s registration page below:

“Registration closes Dec. 15 as convenors need the time to set up teams and schedules before the puck drops on Jan 6,” organizers said. “Do not miss this deadline as many were turned away last year because it was too late.”
