- If you need a rental bag for the 2019-2020 season: Rental bags are for Minis and mites and will be available at the Hockey Swap and some set times following the swap. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a bag. Don’t wait, come to the swap for a rental bag! If your child is a squirt or higher you really should not be using the rental gear. This rental program is more for the newer skaters. Therefore younger skaters will have priority.
