No unity in consumables within your hockey club, teams walking around with different vests, different goalkeeper bags and relatively high replacement costs because teams want to play and train with the “same stuff”.
It is common practice at many clubs that when new material needs to be purchased, this is often done on an ad hoc basis for the lowest retail internet price at that time. The result is that over time “the best deal” is no longer always the best deal and the way in which the club presents itself is not always the most uniform and therefore the most professional.
Uniform and standardize based on the highest requirements
FIKAGEAR guarantees the unity and quality of hockey equipment for hockey clubs by developing all its materials tailor-made and designed for clubs. FIKAGEAR was created from a passion for hockey. We are therefore not just a hockey supplier, but a company that is committed to reducing the costs of material consumption in order to use that money in the education and training of youth hockey players. By standardizing and personalizing our approach for team and club materials, we achieve a number of club goals simultaneously
Our approach ensures that:
- unity is created in the appearance with the same design goalkeeper bag / team bag / hockey ball / run-out masks
- the teams become more recognizable at other clubs and therefore also more proud of their club / identity
- the costs of use and purchase decrease due to volume purchases.
- the contrast between top and broad sport can also be partly visually broken; except that girls B3 has the same stuff as H1
Sustainable training material
In addition to standardization and personalization, we also find the hockey development of club members very important. All our materials have been developed by ourselves with sustainability and creativity as frameworks.
Weighted hockey ball
At FIKAGEAR we sell hockey balls in different weight classes. To promote differential learning. Research into this has shown that training with hockey balls in different weight classes ensures better technique through adaptive training. A light ball fun for the youngest youth and the heavier hockey ball for sleep push training, for example.
Hockey goalkeeper bag with interchangeable wheels
A hockey bag is a utensil. This is pulled behind the bicycle to a training or competition, with the result that the wheels wear out, the handle breaks and a completely new hockey bag has to be purchased. FIKAGEAR has developed a hockey goalkeeper bag where the wheels can be changed and the handle is not present. This means that as a club you have a durable bag where, in the worst case, the wheels need to be replaced. This quickly reduces costs.
Ball bag without losing balls
Every club starts the season with a full ball bag, but halfway through many hockey balls have disappeared. Few trainers count the number of hockey balls that go back into the bag after training and that is logical. FIKAGEAR has therefore developed a bag where counting balls is no longer necessary because the ball bag shows at a glance whether hockey balls are missing. And it can also be personalized with a club and sponsor logo.
Hockey 5’s boarding
FIH Approved boarding systems for 5 aside hockey. Hockey 5’s is a development that is taking shape now that the FIH has embraced this new form of hockey. FIKAGEAR has developed boarding systems that meet the requirements of the FIH. Both in category 1 and category 2. FIH hockey fives boarding The FIH approved boarding has a 2-year warranty, consists entirely of recyclable and recycled materials and more than meets existing safety regulations.
