The BYHA has a limited amount of new player "starter kits" that will be available to rent on a first come/first serve basis. These kits will include all the equipment your child requires to play hockey (with the exception of skates). BYHA will charge a $50.00 rental fee for this equipment.
BYHA also has an equipment page that is located on Facebook (Beloit Youth Hockey Equipment Swap). If interested in renting equipment, please contact either Dave Braasch, Dawn Draves or Jen Taborski.
