Well lets start with gear from first to last: shin guards(2), socks(over the shin guards), pants(over the socks), chest pad, elbow pads(2), jersey, skates(on feet, please tie them tight so you don't hurt yourself, if it hurts your fingers get a skate hook), helmet(on head, strap up all straps, use a cage to cover your face so you don't get hit in the face with a puck), gloves(on your hands so you can hold your hockey stick, and so your hands don't get cold while on the ice).

you will need a mouth guard if you are ice puppie, mite, squirt, peewee, and bantams, i don't know about midget and mens/womens league. You will need 6 people on the ice, goalie, defense(left and right), forwards(right wing left wing and center), same with the other team, usually for squirts and up you should get 10-20 minute period, there will be 3 periods, make sure you have a referee.

watch out for offsides, icing, and penalties, try to keep your gear on, sometimes they can come off. Don't shoot the puck so hard it hits the net above the boards. Don't fight, and don't argue with the referees. You could get kicked off the ice for the rest of the game.

for squirt and up there should be one Captain(wearing C on left side of the jersey), two assistant captains(wearing A on left side of the jersey, three is allowed too), and about three coaches(two assistants, and one head coach).

hope that helped you out! :)
