Ice hockey is a gear intensive sport. With the pads, helmets, sweaters, shorts, gloves, leggings and sticks it gets overwhelming. Most hockey clubs or leagues have standard uniforms for the players, leaving little room for customising the colour scheme. Your hockey stick is another matter. Pro hockey sticks must "not exceed sixty-three inches (63") in length, from the heel to the end of the shaft; nor more than twelve and one-half inches (12½"), from the heel to the end of the blade," according to Pro Hockey Stuff. If you wrap the hockey stick according to these measurements, use custom colours and schemes to make it your own custom piece of gear.

Things you need
- Hockey wrapping tape in your colour scheme choice
- Utility knife
- Custom stick cap in your colour choice
Choose a colour scheme suited to your team, preferences or style. Wrap the blade of the stick according to the rules of your league.
Decorate the shaft of the stick using the permanent markers. Use different colour markers to make zigzags, team mascot cartoons or wording to reflect your personality or styles.
Push a stick cap at the end of your stick in the colour of your choice. Caps are available at most hockey or sports stores and come in a variety of colours.
