ABOUT ROB RICCI HOCKEY DEVELOPMENT
Rob, a Georgetown resident is going into his 9th year of player development and during this time has trained a wide range of athletes all the way from youth to pro players. Rob has been able to use his 7 year pro playing experience and combine that with his 8 years of coaching experience to understand the needs of young athletes and help them make improvements toward their individual goals. Rob and his staff are looking forward to helping the Mini Thunder formulate a solid base of skills and knowledge that will help them along their young hockey journeys.

More on Equipment - Required Equipment for Players and Goalies
Ensuring safety on the ice is priority, and proper fitting equipment plays a critical role in player safety. Three important factors should be stressed when evaluating hockey equipment:
- good working condition
- well maintained throughout its life span
- proper fit
‘Hand-me-downs’ are a great way to save money, but be sure to carefully inspect the items to ensure they are safe to wear and properly functioning. Be sure to note the helmet expiry date sticker on helmets. Plan a budget for purchasing equipment. The most expensive equipment is not always necessarily the best for your child. We recommend you consult a professional sporting goods retailer for advice before you purchase any product.
