Best Lacrosse Goalie Shafts Lacrosse VideoThe best lacrosse goalie shafts are specifically designed to make it easier for lacrosse goalies to clear the ball with either short crisp passes, or long and accurate floaters that get the ball up and out quickly. Goalie shafts can be anywhere from 30 to 40 inches in length and can vary depending on the player. The shorter shafts are usually lighter and used by advancing youth goalies up through high school. This makes it easier to make the sweeping saves as well as running with the ball. The biggest benefit with the longer 40-inch shaft is that it makes your life a lot easier when it comes to throwing long passes over the top of the ride to hit a streaking defenseman or middie, leading to a fast break going the other way. Many goalies love the ability to go from defense to offense so quickly. We currently carry three goalie shafts, the Maverik A1 Goalie Shaft, the ECD Carbon Pro Goalie Shaft, and the STX Outlet Goalie Shaft. There are major differences between all three shafts and we can help you figure out which is best for you!
ATTACK LENGTH SHAFTS
6 Best Lacrosse Goalie Shafts for 2021
How to Choose a Lacrosse Goalie Shaft
Having trouble deciding which goalie shaft to go with? Here are some things you may want to consider when comparing options.
The first thing to consider when choosing a goalie shaft is what length you want.
As you see above, most goalie shafts are 36 or 40 inches. You can, however, use a shaft as short as 30 inches. This is why you’ll see some goalies using attack shafts.
Like many of the other things to consider when choosing a new shaft, there is no “best” length for goalie shafts. It comes down to your personal preference.
Some goalies may like a shorter, lighter shaft that they can move more quickly, while others may prefer the extra length to help with deflections or throwing outlet passes.
You don’t want a stick that is going to limit your ability to react to shots due to its weight. A few ounces can be the difference between getting your stick across the cage in time to make that doorstep save and turning around to pick the ball up out of the back of the net.
I recommend looking for a shaft under 7 ounces. You shouldn’t have to worry about shafts this light slowing you down. If you really prefer light shafts, you can find some options closer to 5 ounces or look into attack shafts if you prefer a 30-inch shaft.

While it’s important to find a light shaft, you don’t want one that will break the first time a shot deflects off it or an attackman checks your stick.
That’s why you need to strike a balance between (light) weight and strength.
Though these two usually work against each other (heavier shafts = stronger), many top tier goalie shafts, such as those listed above, use advanced materials that are both strong and light.
The best way to gauge the strength of a shaft is to read/watch customer reviews and talk to other goalies to see how their experiences were with it.
The main types of lacrosse shafts are metal and composite/carbon fiber.
In my opinion, it doesn’t really matter which you go with. As long as you are comfortable with the shaft and like the way it feels, it shouldn’t make much of a difference.
Carbon fiber shafts tend to flex some whereas metal shafts are pretty stiff. This is more important for offensive players that shoot the ball, but it may be noticeable to some goalies when throwing hard outlet passes.
Metal shafts also form dings and dents more easily than composite shafts. Metal shafts are usually still usable in these cases, however, whereas carbon fiber shafts are unusable once they shatter.
Lacrosse goalie shafts come in a variety of shapes including traditional octagonal, concave, rigid, asymmetrical, and more.
Like the other things on this list, which is best for you depends on your personal preference.
It is worth testing out different shapes—especially as a goalie since having a good grip on the shaft is so important.
You want to choose a shape that feels comfortable when you’re wearing gloves and gives you enough leverage to quickly move your stick around the cage.
Another factor of how good your grip on your shaft is is the finish of it (what the outer layer feels like). You don’t want a shaft that is going to slip in your gloves, especially as you are trying to make saves.
Metal shafts typically have some sort of sandblasted finish that makes them a bit rougher. Composite shafts typically have a smoother finish but may have some additional texture to give goalies a better grip.
You can, of course, always use tape to give yourself a better grip too. It’s nice to have a shaft with a finish you like, though, so if your hands are out of their usual placement you still have control over your stick.
Last but not least, you always have to factor in your budget when deciding which shaft to buy.
While top tier shafts are definitely lighter and stronger than a lot of cheaper alternatives, more affordable handles aren’t likely to hold you back that much.
There are a lot of decent options in the $50 to $90 range.
If you have to choose a cheaper head or shaft, I recommend going with a cheaper shaft.
The best goalie lacrosse heads are lighter, stronger, and have more stringing holes and better scoops than cheap goalie heads.
With that being said, if you are trying to find a cheaper lacrosse shaft, I recommend looking at older models. Often these are discounted as new versions come out despite there being little difference from generation to generation.
5 Best Men’s Lacrosse Sticks – Oct.2021
Lacrosse is a sport that may not be as well-known as football or basketball, but it’s extremely popular in certain areas of the world.
Lacrosse can be played by men, women, or children. It can be played recreationally or in competitive leagues for elementary through college-age youths. Adults also can play the game recreationally or even professionally.
Men’s lacrosse requires quite a bit of equipment to play the game safely, as it can be physical. Helmets, padded gloves, shoulder pads, mouthguards, and arm guards all are required to keep a player safe, among other items.
Amidst all the equipment, don’t forget to pay attention to the quality of your men’s lacrosse stick. Having the right stick gives you more success on the field, no matter what position you’re playing. A stick needs to last a long time even when playing in rough conditions to be worth its value. Read on to learn about our favorite men’s lacrosse sticks and our criteria for choosing them.
One of the most important things to pay attention to when purchasing a lacrosse stick is its length. Different players on the field need sticks of varying lengths. These lengths are different for youth, men’s, or women’s game play, so double check that you have a legal stick before using it in league play.
- Attacker: An offensive player uses an attacking stick. This stick is shorter than other players’ sticks, which allows the offensive player to control the ball more precisely. It measures between 40 and 42 inches in length for a male player.
- Defender: A defensive player uses a longer stick than an offensive player. This allows the defender to perform stick checks more successfully against the player with the ball. A men’s lacrosse defensive stick, also called a long stick, measures 52 to 72 inches in length.
- Goalie: A men’s goalie lacrosse stick can measure anywhere from 40 to 72 inches in length. The proper length of stick for a goaltender or defender depends on the height of the player and his skill level.
Midfielders— who play both offense and defense — can select either an attacker or defender stick. Midfielders who play with an emphasis on offense need a shorter stick than those midfielders who are more defensive-minded.
You can attach a different head to your men’s lacrosse stick if the head wears out or if you need a different level of control of the ball.
The main portion of the stick that you hold with your hands is called the shaft. The top of the stick is where you attach the head. The area where the head is attached has a hole for a screw.
A men’s lacrosse stick commonly consists of aluminum, carbon fiber, titanium, or scandium. The shaft is hollow, so the materials are important to give the stick a durable construction.
To help with grip, a men’s lacrosse stick either has an octagonal shape, a round shape, or a concave shape. Players can use any type of shape successfully, depending on their personal preference.
“The lacrosse stick also is called a crosse or a shaft.”
Men’s lacrosse stick prices
As with most types of sports equipment, men’s lacrosse sticks have a wide price range. You can purchase a lacrosse stick without a head attached or with a head attached (called a complete stick). Having a complete stick typically costs $25 to $50 more than a stick alone.
Inexpensive: The least expensive men’s lacrosse sticks cost between $25 and $50. These sticks consist of lightweight materials that aren’t going to last in a rough game; they can dent if another player’s stick strikes them. They’re best for beginners and recreational play with limited physical contact between players.
Mid-range: In the $50 to $125 price range are lacrosse sticks aimed at players with a bit of experience. As your skills improve, you’re more likely to play games with significant stick checking, so you need a stick that can stand up to it.
Expensive: Top-end lacrosse sticks cost $125 to $300. These sticks consist of lightweight, durable materials that flex to provide maximum ball speed on shots. Players who are experienced and playing in competitive leagues want this type of stick.
When measuring a lacrosse stick to determine a legal length, officials measure it from the tip of the head to the bottom of the stick.
When playing men’s lacrosse, you want to be certain your stick meets the rules of the game or league. Referees may check the legality of any stick before the game or during a break in game play. We’ve compiled some tips to ensure your stick is a legal piece of equipment.
- Overly deep pockets are illegal. When you pick a head to place on your men’s lacrosse stick, test the pocket. A pocket that’s too deep results in a penalty. The stick is not allowed back into the game until the pocket is changed to accommodate the rules.
- Don’t adjust the stick after the referee requests a stick check. Referees watch closely after requesting a stick check. If a player performs any move that appears to be adjusting the stick before handing it to the referee, a penalty is assessed. If the referee finds any part of the stick to be illegal, additional penalties occur.
- Stick lengths must adhere to the rules. Any stick that is deemed too long or too short is removed from the game and results in penalty time for the player.
- The majority of the rules apply to the head of the men’s lacrosse stick. The head of the stick must adhere to size requirements, so pay attention to any limitations your league uses. In fact, most rules for the stick are aimed at the head area. During a stick check, the referee checks both the head and stick.
- Stick penalties can greatly affect the game. Beyond assessing penalty time, a referee could disallow a goal scored with an illegal stick. For some stick rules violations, a player may be ejected from the game if the same player has already accumulated personal foul penalties.
Other products we considered
If you’re looking for a specific feature not found in our top sticks, we considered a few other high-quality products. Those looking to play goalie at the recreational level will appreciate the feel of STX Shield 100 Goalie Stick. It’s reasonably priced and it’s a complete stick, so you can begin using it immediately. Experienced players who want a lightweight stick will enjoy the build quality of Nike Men’s Lakota 2.0 Vapor Alloy Complete Lacrosse Stick. It helps players make quick passes and shots. Those who play an attacking position will like the durability and feel of String King Complete Attack Lacrosse Stick. It’s a little pricey for beginning players, but its design is well-balanced, helping you develop your skills. If you like that stick but you need extra durability for physical play, we like String King Complete 2 Attack Lacrosse Stick. It’s more expensive than its predecessor, but it has thicker side rails and an aluminum alloy in the stick to stand up to rough games.
Q. Why do sticks need to be durable?
A. Stick checking is part of the game of lacrosse for men. This occurs when one player tries to knock the ball loose from the player carrying the ball by checking. A player is allowed to poke and slap at the stick of the player carrying the ball when checking. Your lacrosse stick must be able to stand up to checking without breaking.
Q. Is it possible to alter a men’s lacrosse stick to make it easier for me to use?
A. No. Lacrosse players can only place tape or a grip material at the base of the stick to help them hold it tighter. You cannot place extra material at the top of the stick near the head. You cannot alter the composition of the stick, or shave down or bend the material to create more flexibility or reduce the weight of the stick. Additionally, a hollow men’s lacrosse stick must have a cap on the end that’s made specifically for lacrosse sticks.
Q. Can I use a men’s goalie lacrosse stick while playing another position?A. During any league game, referees do not allow goalie sticks to be used in the field of play. The goalie stick has a much larger head than attacker or defender sticks, meaning it’s not allowed for players at other positions. Each team is limited to one player using a goalie stick on the field at a time.
Q. Should I buy a lacrosse stick with or without a head attached?
A. For inexperienced players, a complete lacrosse stick with a head already attached can be beneficial. Having a head attached allows you to begin playing immediately after buying the stick. However, the pre-attached head may not be the quality you want. Experienced players may want a specific type of head, buy it separately, and attach it to the stick themselves.
US Lacrosse Adopts Age-Appropriate Youth Rules – It’s About Time!
Yesterday it was announced that US Lacrosse, the National Governing Body of Lacrosse, has adopted age-appropriate rules for youth lacrosse. Now I know not everyone reading this is interested in the youth game, so let me briefly tell you why this news is drastically important to you, your babies, your baby’s babies and the overall future of our sport.
Assuming the gospel of USL is widely accepted, these national playing rules will establish a strong foundation for today’s young lacrosse players all across America. While you may not be a youth player, parent or coach, you undoubtedly care about our sport if you’re reading this blog. I think you’d agree with me when I state that the most crucial aspect of our sport’s growth lies at the Youth level. It all starts with the kids!
USL has gone above and beyond by putting together these clear and concise playing rules for youth boys’ lacrosse and youth girls’ lacrosse. As a high school lacrosse coach, I only wish they had done it sooner! To give you a look at the details and shed some light on this topic, I’ve included snippets from the boys’ rules and a few of my own insights below. Over the weekend, I will try to collect some thoughts from a women’s lacrosse coach about the girls’ rules and share them with you next week.
Please feel free to drop your own take on these rules in the comments section!
The minimum stick length at the U11 and U9 levels will decrease from 40 to 37 inches (maximum of 42 inches). Long poles will be prohibited at the U9 level, and they will not be recommended for U11. Strings or leathers will be limited to a hanging length of 2 inches. All goalies will be required to wear arm pads and a protective cup.
All goooooood. Honestly, I’m interested to hear what Connor Wilson has to say about the stick length, but I think it’s a great move. There are boys of all sizes at that age, so the more options for stick length, the better. Young goalies should always wear arm pads and cups as well – why risk injury?
At the U9 level, given mutual agreement of the teams, one coach per team may step onto the field during play to provide instruction.
There was no need to put “given mutual agreement” into this ruling. Just require it. Kids need to get coached at that age level – especially individually. If a coach can be on the field during play, he will be able to communicate with individual players easily and more quickly. I say kids need to get coached more, but then again, kids need better coaches too. Sometimes more instruction from your coach isn’t always a good thing, but I digress…
Also in the U11 and U9 divisions, should the score differential become four or more goals, the trailing team will be given the ball at midfield following a goal (unless the trailing team opts for a standard faceoff).
I know there are people out there who will hate this rule, but let’s be honest with ourselves here for a moment. For U11 and U9 players, what’s important now? Keeping the game close and getting each team as many touches as possible, that’s what.
The defensive 20-second count and the offensive 10-second count will not be used in U11 and U9 play.
Smart call on USL’s part. Neither count is needed at these levels, especially if you consider coaches may be on the field instructing their players to move the ball up-field. Officials will be able to put their focus on more important calls, and let’s remember, officials aren’t always the most experienced at these levels.
The distance from a player to a loose ball within which legal stick checks, holds, body checks and pushes may occur will be reduced from 5 yards to 3 yards at all age levels.
I would have gotten quite a few penalties if 3 yards was the rule when I was a kid. Just saying.
Violent, purposeful collisions, particularly those targeted at unsuspecting players and that feature one player intentionally putting another player on the ground or inflicting injury, will be prohibited at all age levels. This would include an illegal body check on a player in a defenseless position — one whose blind side is exposed to the hit, who has his head turned for a pass or who has his head down playing a loose ball.
This is good.
Body checking will be prohibited at the U11 and U9 age levels.
I need someone to define “body checking” for me. While I think this rule could be a good thing, it could also be detrimental to a sport that draws football and hockey players to try it based on its physical nature.
At the U13, U11 and U9 levels, any one-handed check will be considered a slash, regardless if the attempt makes contact with the opposing player.
Love it. Kids need to learn the fundamentals. As a coach in an emerging area, I see wayyyyyy too many high school players who have picked up horrible habits because they were never penalized for this type of thing when they played youth lacrosse. I hope official stress this rule right away. Finally, attackboys will learn how to ride correctly! I know a couple of attackboys who would have better chance of playing high-level college ball if they just moved their feet on the ride.
Honoring the game remains an important part of the youth lacrosse experience, and US Lacrosse added examples of unsportsmanlike conduct — including verbal language and body language — that may be penalized by game officials.
Again, this is pure gold. Way too many kids out there are already trash talking and throwing up gang sangs. Okay, maybe not gang signs, but you get the picture. Unsportsmanlike conduct should be focused on just as much as illegal body checks at this level.
A U15 or a U13 player that accumulates four personal fouls or five minutes in personal foul penalty time will be disqualified. At the U11 and U9 level, three personal fouls would warrant disqualification.
Solid, but what was the rule commonly used before this? 5? 6? Either way, I’m satisfied if penalties are enforced the same way as fouls in basketball.
There will be no extra-man situations at the U9 level.
Good. There’s no point. Let another kid off the bench and into the game if a teammate gets a penalty.
THE CHALLENGE AHEAD
Having the National Governing Body reign down on youth lacrosse with a smorgasbord of national rulings is one thing. Having every youth lacrosse organization in the United States implement said rules is an entirely different matter. These rules are intended for the 2012 season and beyond; The challenge will be getting every youth league to implement them.
What is it going to take to convince every youth league to use these rules? Will youth leagues in hotbeds adopt the national rulings first, or will it be the startup leagues in emerging areas? If you’re a leader in your lacrosse community and you have a say in what goes on at the youth level, now is the time for you to step up. Do everything you can to make sure these sanctioned rules are accepted and implemented immediately by your organization. If the old guard has a problem with it, tell ’em to stand down. It’s for the kids!Youth lax wands in action.

The 10 Best Lacrosse Sticks 2021
1. STX Lacrosse Stallion 50 Youth Lacrosse Complete StickWhy we like it: This forgiving stick is perfect for youth with developing lacrosse skills with its forgiving materials.
Unlike many similar lacrosse sticks, STX’s Lacrosse is one of the inspirational designs which allow players to harness their skills. It can be used by attacking players, midfielders, and face-offs. Since it is made for the youth player, it also has specific characteristics which make it easier to handle.
One of these characteristics is the length of the stick itself. Being shorter than sticks for adults, it is also lighter. Youth league players can rely on a stick which is lighter and easier to handle as well. Kids can rely on the stick to learn lacrosse’s ropes.
If the design of the stick looks familiar is because it draws inspiration from the Stallion 550’s head. With a design which is even more impressive given its competitive pedigree inspiration, the stick proves to be fun to use as well.
The playing performance is as good as it can get with learning design. There’s a lot of forgiveness in the stick, mainly based on the head’s softer material. The molded material is not as rigid in contact with the ball and this allows it to damp some of the shocks when in contact during the game. For the players, this means they won’t have to struggle as much whenever they miss their target catch.
With soft mesh stringing, there’s no extra weight added onto the head of the stick either. Kids can simply control the stick to the best of their abilities without too much effort. Both girls and boys can use the sticks to make the most of their experience during any attacking moment of the game.
With a glossy finish, the stick looks great as well. For youth players planning to play lacrosse for years, it can be a great option going into the STX Stallion 200 complete stick.
Made with a shorter handle, this youth lacrosse stick draws its inspiration from the Stallion 550.
- Suitable for youth players
- Reliable in attack
- Made with a lightweight mesh net
- Features a glossy finish
- Not accepted some girls’ youth leagues
2. STX Lacrosse Stallion 200 A/M Complete StickWhy we like it: This full-size stick is mainly used for players with improving skills who need extra forgiveness.
Made after the popular Elite Stallion U 550, the lacrosse stick is ready for action in all playing positions. Based on durable materials, it is used across the field, in various positions. Attacking and playing midfield is not a problem with this stick. Face-offs are dealt with quickly based on its lightweight design as well.
Made with a soft lightweight mesh net, the stick is ready for high-speed play. Furthermore, it meets the NCAA’s and NFHS’s rules. This makes it a valuable solution with the league and non-league play. Adults can choose it for their regular games as well as for practice purposes.
Similarly to other STX sticks, it also comes in various colors. This is why users can choose from neon green, black, and white color options.
Made with a new STX 600 series handle, the stick is easier to maneuver. Players find it faster but still forgiving, which is great for those with improving skills. Similarly to lacrosse sticks which are made with a forgiving profile, the stick is suitable for different in-field position.
At an affordable price, it manages to deliver an impressive solution for those seeking to work on their skills and improve towards premium designs. From teenagers to adults, it is among the sticks with better build quality compared to value stick sets. It also represents a good solution for both training purposes and league games.
This versatile stick made with the STX 600 alloy handle is practical for teenagers and adults.

- Suitable for teenagers and adults
- Catch and control for all skill levels
- The release could be improved
3. STX Lacrosse Exult 300 Girls Complete StickWhy we like it: With an angled scoop, the stick provides accuracy for midfield play.
Stepping away from entry-level sticks means many lacrosse players can truly step up their game. In the midfield, the stick offers a reliable performance which allows better catching and throwing. Designed with a scoop angle whip for accuracy, the stick is ready for action as soon as players hit the field.
The string design of the stick is unique as well. It features overlapping lining right in the center of the net. It allows runners to flex out and hug the ball better for more accurate play. Creating a better net pocket also means players can play with improved confidence.
But if the net has changed, the sidewalls are still rigid. This is why the stick might not be addressed to those who are just starting with lacrosse. On the contrary, it is made for those who want to improve their game.
With a unique overlapping sting system, the lacrosse stick allows better scooping. As a result, players can slowly transition towards a faster game. At the same time, throws are improved as well. With a faster game pace, players can hope for better results in the long term as well.
When transitioning from an entry-level stick, most players can see a positive difference from the first play. At the same time, they also get the opportunity to improve accuracy, something which can be limited on most cheap lacrosse sticks.
Mainly seen as the step-up solution for seasoned players, the stick comes with a unique overlapping string system.
- Allows faster catches
- Made with unique overlapping strings
- Designed with an angled scoop
- Made with stiff sidewalls for better throws
- Not the best for lacrosse beginners
4. A&R Sports Major League Lacrosse Mini SetWhy we like it: This starter kit is a good method of testing out kids’ commitment to lacrosse.
The inexpensive kit of two lacrosse sticks is one of the methods for parents to test out their kids’ commitment to the game before investing in premium equipment. Since there are two sticks in the pack, kids can play together and they can lay the foundations of an adventure in an incredible game.
With soft mesh pockets, the sticks are easy to hold and to maneuver. Since the handle is only 30-in long, the sticks can also be used by kids. When playing on their own, they can even exercise catching and throwing, since a ball is also included in the set.
From a recreational perspective, the sticks are all kids need to get into lacrosse. Furthermore, they will get a replica of premium adult sticks and they can build on their new skills through time.

Made by the official supplier of Major League Lacrosse, the sticks represent one of the suitable designs for the ultimate dedication on a budget. Kids can stay within the brand’s line of sticks in the future as well. Since other equipment options are also available from the brand, it is important to note that the transition towards playing in a team can be smoother as well.
Alternatively, parents can also consider completing the set of two sticks and a ball with a few extras. Conveniently, the manufacturer also offers secondary sets of rubber balls in case the first one gets lost. A goal set is also on sale from A&R Sports so that kids can practice their throwing skills on a target.
From a safety perspective, it’s reassuring to know the sticks come with rubberized materials. Kids can even hit the pavement a few times without any other damages apart to the aesthetics of the sticks. With removable nets, they can also keep the sticks clean on the long term.
Suitable for kids playing together, this set is made with short sticks for maximum practicality.
- Includes 2 lacrosse sticks
- Ships with a rubber ball
- Made from durable rubber
- Teaches kids basic lacrosse skills
- Only one rubber ball included in the set
5. String King Complete Attack Lacrosse Stick with Head & ShaftWhy we like it: Made to rival premium designs, this stick is mainly made for youth practice fields in Major League Lacrosse games.
Made with better materials, the stick is engineered to perform better. Even its design is already the first sign the stick is made for performance. Even if it is affordable, the stick still comes with premium color options. Kids can choose shaft colors from composite, silver or nickel finishes.
The balance of the design is also on point. Most youth players still don’t have the strength of an adult and a balanced stick, even if it is heavier, proves easier to handle. Unlike many other similar sticks, the String King design needs no break-in. The net is ready to catch the ball efficiently from the first try.
The most convenient aspect of the lacrosse stick is given by the materials. Engineered to perform properly out on the court, the stick is ready for action even in some tournaments, not just in practice games.
The stick itself comes with a removable end cap, a butt end, and pre-cut lacrosse tape. Players get to experiment with the best materials and have customization options for the best grip in place as well. But when it comes to the ideal user, the stick is mainly orientated towards those who’re already familiar with lacrosse. Since it has an enhanced performance over similar sticks, it’s worth playing with it when taking the sport seriously.

6. ECD Lacrosse Elite Setup Rebel on CarbonWhy we like it: Made from durable and lightweight carbon, this stick is specifically designed for lacrosse performance.
The design of this stick is what makes it truly special. Unlike a few other options in its class, it is made with premium carbon materials. While this doesn’t make it the choice for affordability, it certainly makes it a top choice for lacrosse performance.
Shooting and passing is a breeze with the carbon stick. The speed, the shot speed and the general feel of the stick are as good as many young players dream with carbon materials. Based on the Flex 5 technology, the carbon handle aims to improve all these essential areas and the result is a lighter stick which is considerably faster than other similar materials.
The grip is textured. With this small design tweak, lacrosse players can enjoy someone of the best performances when it comes to speed and handling. The strength to weight ratio is already balanced and the textured grip only improves the overall performance of the stick.
With a pinched scoop and an aggressive flare, the lacrosse stick makes scooping and shooting easier. It is reliable on both ends of the field and this can make it one of the best options for a good long term investment.
Unique characteristics don’t stop here. The design of the stick makes ground balls easier to handle. Since it is made for those who already have good sports skills, the stick can elevate the game to the next level. The factory-strung complete stick shines in attack and midfield and its aggressive nature always sets the player on the offensive.
Made from pure carbon, the stick is the choice for strength to weight ratio.
- Very lightweight
- Suitable for attacking positions
- Made with Flex 5 carbon
- Finished with a textured grip
- Not the most affordable option
7. Warrior 2017 Evo Mini StickWhy we like it: This mini lacrosse stick is the youth-friendly version of the EVO 4 stick.
Made for practice purposes, the mini lacrosse stick is a great gift idea for boys and girls. It may not be league-ready, but the stick offers solid performance while training and playing at home. With no required break-in, the stick already comes with a pre-installed net. This means kids can play with the included rubber ball as soon as they get their hands on the stick.
The mini stick is available in red, black, and white. But since it’s made from affordable materials, it can also be the purchase to consider for families where multiple kids want to enjoy fun times playing lacrosse.
As one of the most affordable designs for kids, the stick also includes a lacrosse ball. Additional sets of 2 balls can also be purchased by parents. Since lacrosse balls tend to get lost easily, it might be a good idea to purchase a few extra balls just in case.
Since the stick is shorter, it is also easier to store. Once the fun lacrosse time is over, it can easily slide under a bed. For most new players, this stick is the option to choose and abuse while learning crucial lacrosse skills.
The pocket-friendly lacrosse stick is ready to offer a no-thrills solution for those learning the game.
- Requires no break-in
- Easy to store under a bed
- Comes with a pre-installed net

8. ECD Lacrosse Elite Setup Mirage WhiteWhy we like it: Using carbon fiber layup, the lacrosse stick is one of the options combining a lightweight design with a strong head.
Using some of the best materials already proven in similar ECD designs, the stick is a top choice for added performance. The carbon materials used on the stick are proprietary which means the exact combination and elements of the materials are only found at ECD.

Guide to Buying the Best Lacrosse Stick
Are all lacrosse pockets the same?
Not all lacrosse stick pockets are the same. Deeper pockets allow better ball control while shallow pockets are recommended for quick release. Many of these pockets can be hand-adjusted by the players themselves.What are the best shaft materials?
Shaft materials vary considerably. Depending on the performance level and on a personal budget, lacrosse shafts can be made from aluminum, scandium, carbon fiber, titanium, and other alloys. Some of these materials can be further developed into proprietary blends.Is a wide head better than a narrow head?
A wide head is a better solution for new lacrosse players. Experienced players can choose a narrow head for its extra speed performance.Are aluminum shafts any good?
Aluminum shafts are used in mass. They offer a good balance between performance and affordability. However, not all aluminum shafts are the same. They can vary in strength, weight, and durability.Is a short stick good for lacrosse?
A short stick is perfect for attacking movements. Youth players can also consider short sticks as a great learner solution until their strength and lacrosse skills improve.Is a long stick good for lacrosse?
A long stick is normally used for defensive purposes. Players who need the extra reach to get the ball from the opponent usually prefer longer sticks for their extra reach.Can I learn lacrosse on my own?
Learning and practicing lacrosse is possible at home. For practice purposes, a good stick and a goal can be a starter solution.Are all lacrosse sticks suitable for tournaments?
Not all lacrosse sticks are suitable for tournament play. Before choosing a stick for tournaments and official games, lacrosse players should discuss regulation with the coach.How to choose the best lacrosse sticks
Choosing the best lacrosse sticks is not too difficult. Kids can rely on some of the most affordable sticks until they build sufficient confidence. Adults or experienced players can choose or carbon alternatives for a mix of reliability and performance. Since the lacrosse stick is not the only purchase which lacrosse players need to make, it is important to spend wisely. Here’s where to start.Stick length
The length of the stick is arguably its most important characteristic. Depending on the player’s needs, there are a few popular lengths to choose from starting with 30” and up to 72”. While some players may prefer shorter sticks for personal reasons, others prefer them for an attacking performance where speed is of the essence.
Longer lacrosse sticks are suitable for defensive play. But they can also be used as a matter of personal preference. For many players, longer sticks are best suited when catching, intercepting and releasing over long distances.Stick heads
Stick heads differ by design and they are tightly regulated. NCAA heads are only suitable for their own rules. They are not to be confused with NFHS heads. NFHS heads are clear to play with at a youth level. This mostly covers high schools and other organized youth competitions.
The universal stick head is made to abide by all regulation. It can be used both under the NFHS rules and under the NCAA rules. Apart from these 3 heads, a few other designs need to be considered also. As expected, goalie’s heads are larger. As a result, the accepted heads for the goalie’s stick is up to 10 inches wider than a regular head.
Other regulation needs to be abided by the head as well. For example, unless playing lacrosse at home, even the depth of the pocket needs to be adjusted on the stick. This is why when inside the pocket, the top edge of the ball needs to be deeper than the lowest point of the edge sidewalls. This is adjustable with most types of sticks. At the same time, there are plenty of replacement string options to consider when it comes to the best results.Stick material
The materials of the stick influence its performance and its price considerably. Seen in a few other sports as well, most of these materials are not unique to lacrosse. However, with an optimized design, they offer the most practicality and the best results for various purposes.
Aluminum shafts are generally considered durable. Players can use them every day and they can maintain their structure well in time. Some of these shafts are also known to scratch in time, especially at a surface level where most are covered by paint. However, there are plenty of players attesting to the smallest visual impact of the shafts even when used for years.
Carbon fiber composite shafts can be more actionable and lighter. They can also be adjusted with certain technologies such as with the ECD lacrosse sticks. With high, medium and low kick points, carbon fiber sticks are among the leading options for performance. They are made for the maximum snap, additional control and better feel on the bottom hand. Even if carbon seems like material with reduced flexibility at first, it proves to offer superior reliability and flexibility which is hard to match.
But the flex levels can also be added on various other materials. For example, many unique alloys are used to create these custom kick points on the lacrosse sticks. This is why it is so important to consider not only the materials but how they are put together and which design or technology takes them to the next level. In a market where the differences can be very small, these characteristics make the difference for experienced players.Design particularities
Further design particularities abound in all manufacturers. The shape of the shaft is one of the areas which seem to be getting attention and which is important for feel and performance. Octagons are popular due to their traditional nature. However, many octagon variations are seen today. Lacrosse players can find different curves in the edges of the octagon shape itself. The overall feel of the stick is changed with its shape, together with how it performs and even with its weight.Overall feel and comfort
The feel and comfort of the stick are subjective. One category of players who largely go by the feel of the stick is youth players. Kids and teenagers usually need to feel comfortable with the stick before even stepping out on the court. Most kids find comfort in different types of sticks which can even include adult sticks. Mini sticks are also sold in mass today.
The comfort of the stick is generally predicated on its materials. The lighter the stick, the easier it is to hold. A lightweight stick also proves comfortable to hold for longer training sessions. One of the areas where novice sticks fail is offering just the right comfort for kids to play and practice for hours. Soon enough, their hands get tired and the extra weight of the alloy can prove too much in many cases.Strings and adjustability
The strings of the lacrosse stick need to be adjusted. These strings are included with most sticks but additional strings can be purchased as well. Most of the strings need to be replaced after a period of playing. However, they can be customized by tension and by the way they look. Before purchasing colored strings, players should ensure they are allowed in their competition.Extras and accessories
Lacrosse game balls, goal targets, grips, and even ball resurfacing tools are often seen as must-have accessories for the best lacrosse sticks. Practicing with just one ball which is often included in the pack is not enough. From packs of 2 to packs of 120 pieces, lacrosse balls are a must. Even when practicing at home, with a goal target, players need multiple lacrosse balls to rely on.
Lacrosse trainer balls which are connected to the stick by a string are available as well. They might not be the best option to simulate real-world play. But these balls can be added to any type of stick to practice catch and release from various angles. They can be particularly useful when buying or upgrading a lacrosse stick. Youth players can use these balls to get a better feel of their new sticks as most such balls are made according to the official size and weight regulation. However, they should not be seen as a replacement for real lacrosse balls.Final considerations
Some of the best lacrosse sticks are now made to last for years. Even the most affordable designs can be relied upon for long periods. When it comes to the ultimate performance, it is important to understand that some of the best solutions at hand don’t need to be the most expensive.
As seen in the examples above, the best designs can look different according to each player. Those looking for a versatile stick are often guided towards an alloy design. Most alloy designs last for years. Carbon fiber sticks can also last for years and the examples above are covered by a 2-year warranty.
Most importantly, the sticks need to serve their purpose and be comfortable to use. Many lacrosse sticks are simply difficult to handle and balls are lost in the process which would otherwise not be the case with other sticks.
Some sticks need to be restrung so they offer the best performance in time. This can be done at most local lacrosse shops for those who don’t want to do this themselves. A few particularities apply according to the type of material as well. Many materials are now treated so that they have minimized risks. UV-resistant materials are widely used in the sport as a result.
When buying a lacrosse stick as a gift, it is important to know that each product has its advantages and disadvantages. Midfielders can usually play with any type of stick. But things change when it comes to defense or to attack. This is why all lacrosse players should start small. It’s not worth investing the most if the skills are not up there for the best sticks. On the other hand, most players will feel limited by underperforming lacrosse sticks over the years. Harnessing skills and relying on the best sticks is the best method of improving lacrosse skills.
Those unsure about regulation should always check with their team coach before making a purchase. NCAA and NHFS have different rules and most players should be aware of the regulation they need to abide during official games.

How to choose hockey gloves (gaiters)
Hockey gloves or gaiters are an indispensable part of the protective equipment of any hockey player, designed to protect the lower part of the hockey player’s hands from injuries when hitting the hands with a stick, puck hits, and the like.How to choose the right hockey gloves …
Hockey gloves , according to the level of performance, are divided into professional and amateur , in size they can be adults, children, junior, and by purpose – field player and goalkeeper.
Powerful in appearance, the hockey gaiters are very light and comfortable. The toes should bend and unbend easily, which is why many manufacturers make them in a multi-segment design. The outer surface of the armguards can be made of fabric or polyurethane.The first ones are for amateurs, they wear out quickly enough. The second ones are for professionals and last twice as long. Protective plates made of multi-layer artificial materials provide effective energy absorption during impacts and are located along the entire outer surface of the hand. The thumb reinforcement insert is designed to protect against both shocks and possible dislocations or fractures. The palms or “palms” are made of soft yet durable materials and provide a comfortable grip for the club and resistance to rubbing during intensive use.There are, depending on the model, single-layer and multi-layer. Professional hockey leggings weigh less amateur models, are stronger, stiffer and more comfortable to wear.
To choose the right hockey gloves, you need to decide on the size. To do this, measure the distance from the edge of the elbow pad to your fingertips, find the corresponding length in the glove size table and determine the size. In addition, you need to pay attention to the recommendations for the height, weight and age of the hockey player.
In 1988, NHL hockey players changed their traditional leggings to gloves with a shortened cuff. Having lost their safety, the hockey players won in throwing speed and club possession. Today, “short” gloves have become the mainstream and have replaced their predecessors. At the same time, when choosing children’s hockey leggings, longer models should be preferred, and elongated elbow pads will help older players keep their hands. There should be no gap between the elbow pad and the glove.
The chosen gloves should bend easily, unbend in the fingers so as not to hinder your movements during the game, and not to sit too tightly.The presence of a special cuff allows them to be adjusted to the existing protection. The presence of a thermoforming wrist on the model will allow you to adjust the gaiters individually.

How to determine the size of hockey leggings yourself?
Hockey gloves are an important piece of equipment for any player. Hockey gaiters provide effective protection for the hands and wrist joints from a wide variety of injuries. With their help, damage from blows with a stick on the hands, accidental hits with a puck and other unpleasant physical influences is minimized. In order for hockey leggings not only to successfully protect your hands, but also to provide maximum comfort during the game or training, it is necessary to take the most responsible approach to the choice of this most important element of the outfit of every hockey player.
How to determine the size of hockey leggings?
First of all, you need to find out the distance between the fingertips, as well as the lower part of the elbow pad, using a regular centimeter. The resulting figure should be converted to inches. After that, we recommend using the table below in order to find out your size. Additionally, we advise you to take into account a number of other parameters (weight, age and height of the player).
Important to know! One inch is 2.54 cm.
Please note that the figures indicated, especially regarding the height, age and weight of the player, are indicative. In reality, they may differ slightly. This point must be taken into account in the selection process! Moreover, even a complete coincidence of sizes does not guarantee that the hockey leggings will fit perfectly on your hands. This information is openly written by manufacturers of equipment on their websites.
The manufacturer matters!
The size grid of hockey gloves has some differences from different manufacturers.Therefore, we suggest that you familiarize yourself with the dimensional grids of the hockey leggings of the most popular manufacturers of this element of the hockey player’s outfit in the table below:
A few more important tips!
We told how to find out the size of hockey leggings . Now we offer four main tips that will definitely come in handy in the process of selecting this piece of equipment:
- Hockey gloves must not fit back to back. Otherwise, they will hinder your movements.As a result, this will create discomfort while playing or training and will prevent you from fully demonstrating your talent and playing skills.
- It is important that there is no gap between the elbow pad and the gaiters. Hockey players who choose shorter versions of gloves need to choose elongated versions of elbow pads accordingly.
- Be sure to try on multiple models of gloves. Hockey leggings are that element of a hockey player’s outfit that is extremely important to feel on yourself before buying.Don’t limit yourself to one manufacturer or model. It is important to evaluate as many options as possible, among which you can definitely choose the best one.
- Choose gloves with a thermoformed wrist. Models of this type provide additional comfort thanks to a unique technology that ensures that the gaiters adapt to the shape of your hand. A similar effect is provided by the foam integrated into the gloves “getting used” to the shape of the hockey player’s wrist due to the warmth of the human body.
Professional or Amateur Models?
In this matter, the choice is obvious. Professional hockey leggings are distinguished by an abundance of innovative technologies and interesting solutions. They are lighter, last much longer, are more durable and provide the highest level of comfort to wear. Moreover, such models are distinguished by a higher cost.
Accordingly, in conditions of a limited budget, we recommend that you turn your attention to amateur hockey gloves.Among them there are quite a lot of interesting models that do an excellent job with their main task – to ensure protection of the hands and wrists from major injuries! In addition, if you are looking for hockey leggings for playing in the yard or at the amateur level, then in most cases there is no point in overpaying for expensive professional models!
Hockey gloves – how to choose the size and more!
Conventionally, four key structural elements of the considered element of hockey equipment can be distinguished:
- Thumb guard.The most expensive models use special high-density synthetic materials. They provide effective protection for the thumb against unpleasant dislocations, bruises and even fractures.
- Protective plates. Installed over the entire surface of the brush. Made from multi-layered plastics. The main task is to ensure the absorption of force from the blows received.
- Protective cuff. Provides protection for the wrist joint as well as the player’s lower forearm.
- Palm. The part of the hockey leggings that comes into direct contact with the hockey stick during play or practice. In the most expensive professional models, this element is made of the highest quality deerskin, which ensures the longest possible service life of the gloves.
A couple of tips for caring for your hockey leggings!
Abrasion of the palms, as well as the appearance of an unpleasant odor, are the key problems that players face when using hockey leggings.In the first case, it is almost impossible to completely avoid the failure of gloves. You can only delay the appearance of the problem a little. To do this, wrap the handle with tennis racquet tape or even just tape. You can also try sticking the tape on your palm. These solutions will help reduce friction and keep your leggings in top condition for much longer.
If the palms of the hockey gloves are still frayed, then this gap should be patched up as soon as possible.You have the opportunity to do this yourself if you have sewing experience, or immediately contact an experienced craftsman (seamstress or shoemaker). Please note that a piece of genuine leather or dense fabric is most often used as a patch. The specific option should be chosen taking into account the material from which the hockey leggings are made.
We would like to emphasize right away that it is not enough just to buy gloves with antibacterial impregnation to combat unpleasant odors. She can only partially cope with the task.To avoid this problem, use antibacterial compounds for hands, ventilate and wash hockey leggings. It is essential to dry the gloves properly. This should be done with the liner turned out and at room temperature. It is strictly forbidden to put leggings on the battery!
Choose the right equipment and have fun with hockey!
We sincerely hope that the recommendations in this article will help you find the perfect hockey gloves and provide high-quality care for them.Thanks to this, the purchased equipment will delight you with comfort in wearing and will become the key to beautiful feints and the most important heads!
How to choose hockey leggings?
Hockey gloves have the function of protecting fingers, hands and wrists.
To select hockey gloves, you need to measure the distance from your fingertips to the bottom of the elbow pad. This way, you completely protect your wrist from shocks. The resulting value can be found in the table and you will receive the required glove size.
Hockey gloves are measured in inches. Below is a table of size correspondences for hockey leggings:
|BABY (YOUTH)||JUNIOR||ADULTS (SENIOR)|
|Glove size US||8 ”||9 ”||10 ”||11 ”||12 ”||13 ”||14 ”||15 ”|
|Length from fingertips to elbow pad, cm||18-20||20-23||23-38||24-27||25-30||30-33||33-36||38+|
|The approximate height of the player, cm||90-100||100-110||110-120||120-130||140-150||150-170||160-180||180+|
|Approximate player age, years||4-7||6-9||8-11||9-12||11-14||14+||14+||15+|
|Approximate player weight, kg||18-27||23-32||27-41||32-45||36-50||54-73||64-82||73-91|
Gloves differ among themselves in the following indicators:
- Thumb guard.High-end gloves use dense synthetic materials to protect the thumb from sprains and fractures.
- Wrist guard.
- Finger guards. Manufacturers use dense toe protection plates, but at the same time, it is necessary to ensure their mobility. For this, a different shape and arrangement of fingers on the leggings is used.
- Palm. The palm lining material is a durable and soft material that maximizes the feel of the club in the hand, but at the same time prevents the leggings from rubbing against the handle quickly.Depending on the cost of gloves, leather inserts and 2, 3-layer linings may be present.
Gloves from different manufacturers are very different from each other, therefore, to accurately determine the desired model and size, you should try on different options before buying.

Selection Guide: Leggings – HockeyScience – Blogs
The main tool of a hockey player, of course after the head, is his hockey stick.However, any hockey player will tell you that for a good throw or an accurate pass, the stick is not the main thing, the main thing is the hands. Today HockeyScience will help you choose the right protection for these very hands.
Leggings are special gloves that protect the hands, wrist joints and the lower part of the forearms of the player when hitting the hands with the club, hitting the puck, and in other similar cases. The design features of the hockey leggings are such that they provide the maximum degree of mobility of the joints of the upper limbs to ensure efficient stick performance.
- Pictured: Team Dawson City Nuggets 1904/05. Even then, the players of the NHL teams used leggings. True, then they were more like protection from the cold than protection from damage.
The first hockey leggings appeared in the early 1880s, when players wore fur-lined leather gloves. Such gloves protected not only from the cold, but could also protect against minor blows to the hands or when falling on the ice. By the mid-1900s, the length of the glove cuffs had increased, however, in general, the gloves remained the same.
The first modernization of gloves took place in 1931. After Montreal Maroons player Babe Siebert suffered a broken toe, coach Bill O’Brien put a shoehorn in his glove to protect the injured toe. O’Brien’s invention pushed hockey glove manufacturers to reinforce the gaiter’s construction with additional inserts.
In 1957, the New York Rangers were the first in the NHL to use leggings painted in the club colors of blue, red and white.A year later, the Toronto Maple Leafs began to play in colored leggings. The last of the NHL clubs to paint gloves in the colors of the Red Wings club from Detroit, it happened in the 1967-68 season.
In 1988, NHL hockey players began to wear gloves with a shortened cuff. They attributed this to the fact that leggings ending at the wrist, rather than extending a few more inches to the forearm, allowed better wrist throws and more freedom of stick control. Gradually, leggings with a short cuff completely ousted their safer, but less comfortable competitors from the market.
- Structural elements of arms:
- Protective plates – special inserts made of multi-layer plastic materials that provide effective energy absorption from impacts. They are located over the entire upper surface of the hand. They have a different shape and features of mutual arrangement, depending on the design of a particular model.
- Thumb Reinforcement Insert – protects against impacts and prevents possible fracture or dislocation of the thumb bones.
- Protective cuff – protects the wrist joint and the lower part of the hockey player’s forearm.
- “Palm” – the most important part of the glove, directly in contact with the stick. The main criteria for the choice of “palms” are the convenience of the girth of the stick and resistance to rubbing during intensive use. Depending on the model, “palms” are single-layer and multi-layer.
First, decide for what purpose you are buying leggings.If you buy them for yard hockey or for another low level of play – pay attention to inexpensive models of gloves – they are quite light and will definitely protect your hands from uncritical blows. If you have a sufficiently high level of play and experience, then I recommend taking a closer look at the models of a higher class – the level of their protection is higher, and the materials are more perfect.
If you lay out the choice of gloves on the points, then the first step is to find out the size of the leggings that suit you.To do this, measure the distance from your fingertips to the edge of the elbow pads, as shown in the figure on the left. The result obtained must be converted to inches, because the size of hockey leggings is measured exactly in inches – you can do this using the special size table below.
Important: Leggings should not fit snugly to the elbow pad, as this will hinder your movements; but there should also be no gap between the gaiters and the elbow pad – otherwise, the risk of injury will increase.
Hockey gaiters size chart:
Having decided on the size, we go to choose leggings in a specialized store. First of all, remember: The main thing in choosing hockey leggings is the comfort of fit and reliability of the gloves. When choosing leggings, I recommend paying attention not only to leggings from popular brands – CCM, RBK, Easton and Bauer – but also to leggings from more “modest”, so to speak, manufacturers like Warrior and Eagle. Here are some more tips for finding gaiters:
- Try on several models from different manufacturers in the store.Look for gloves that are comfortable, medium-hard gloves.
- The inside of the gaiters should fit your arm and be as comfortable as possible. They should not hinder movement, interfere with the work with the stick. Gloved fingers should bend and unbend easily.
- Remember the safety of your gloves. Leggings should not be too soft, because for comfort and softness, you can pay a high risk of injury.
- For a more comfortable hand, you can purchase gaiters with a thermoformed wrist.The essence of the technology is to adjust the glove to your hand, by “getting used” the foam built into it to the shape of your wrist using the heat of your own body.
If you find the leggings that meet all of the above criteria – you can safely purchase them!
Care of gaiters
Hockey leggings often have two problems: abrasion of the palm and unpleasant odor after training. Now we will try to find a way to eliminate, or even better prevent, these problems.
Let’s start by rubbing the palm. To begin with, let’s remember that it is almost impossible to avoid this phenomenon; the maximum that is possible is to delay abrasion. To avoid abrasion, you can rewind the knob (stick handle – approx.), For example, with a tape for tennis rackets, which reduces friction. You can also, for example, stick a tape on the “palm” of the glove, as suggested by Alexey Stelmakh.
If the rupture of the glove has begun, but is in the initial stage, i.e. there is a small gap, then, in order to avoid a complete replacement of the “palm”, it is necessary to patch this gap.This is very easy to do. For the patch, you need a piece of leather or strong, dense fabric – depending on the material from which your gaiter is made – a little larger than a hole. When you find the patch you want, sew it securely. To reinforce the seam, glue the knots and edges between the seam and the gaiter with super glue. However, if the gap is large enough, and you have not finished the cutting and sewing courses, go straight to the seamstress or shoemaker, who will replace the “palm” of your glove.
Many novice hockey players think that the problem of unpleasant odor from leggings after training can be overcome by buying gloves with a special antibacterial impregnation of the inner “palm” of the leggings.It’s a delusion. Antibacterial impregnation, of course, helps to eliminate the smell, but only partially. To eliminate the unpleasant odor, it is also necessary to use a special antibacterial agent; periodically wash leggings – it is advisable to do this in not very hot water, about 40 degrees; and also properly dry gloves – with the liner turned out, at a cool temperature, never on a radiator!
Observing these simple rules, you, for a long time, will prolong the life of your gloves, and also forget about the leggings exuding an unpleasant smell.
That’s all. Choose wisely, play with pleasure! Until next time!
Hockey gaiters – how to choose gaiters by size
Hockey gloves or gaiters, protect the hands and joints of the hands from hitting the puck and stick. It is logical that at the same time mobility should be maintained, leggings should not constrain movements and interfere with the control of the club. Therefore, it is important to choose the right size for the gloves.
The main parameter for selection is the distance between the fingertips and the lower border of the elbow pad, the correspondence of this parameter and the size of the armrests, see the table below.However, for a person first faced with a choice of hockey leggings, the size of elbow pads suitable for him is probably also a question.
Therefore, in my opinion, it would be more logical to proceed from the length of the hand (from the wrist to the fingertips), which in fact is the main criterion. In my case, it is 19 cm and size 14 gloves are optimal.
Parameters such as height and weight are rather a consequence than a criterion for selection and are provided for information only.Despite the recommendations, the best option is, of course, to try on different options before buying.
Hockey glove sizes
|Parameter||Baby (YTH)||Junior (JR)||Adults (SR)|
|Glove size in inches (1 inch – 2.54 cm)||8||9||10||11||12||13||14||15|
|Length from fingertips to elbow pad, cm||18-20||20-23||23-28||24-27||25-30||30-33||33-36||36+|
Also, in addition to choosing the size of the leggings, there are two more parameters that you should pay attention to when buying:
It’s simple, the more different inserts the gloves have: protection of the fingers, palm, wrist joint, the less likely it is to get injured when the puck or stick of the opponent hits.But in general, between gaiters of different manufacturers and price ranges, of course, there is no such significant difference in the level of protection, as, for example, in skates. And for the beginner and amateur level, even the most entry-level leggings are suitable.
It is important to remember that leggings should not only provide protection, but also leave freedom of movement. Therefore, you should be comfortable. The elbow pad and the glove should not be too close to each other, otherwise the movements will be constrained, but there should not be a large gap between them.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT HOCKEY PROTECTION: EFSI HOCKEY EQUIPMENT SIZES
GENERAL RULE: when choosing protection, make sure that there are no gaps between the protection elements, such as: shorts should overlap the knee cup by about 2 – 3 cm or more in a standing position, biceps protection of the bib should overlap the protection of the elbow triceps, length the wrist protectors of the elbow pads must be up to the cuffs of gloves, etc.
To determine the size of the bib, it is necessary to measure the circumference of the chest.
|KIDS YTH||JUNIOR JR||ADULTS SR|

SHIN GUARD (PLAYER SHIELDS)
To determine the size of the shin guard, in a sitting position, measure the length from the middle of the knee joint to the top of the skate boot.
|KIDS YTH||JUNIOR JR||ADULTS SR|
|US Size||9 “Yth. L||10 “Jr. S||11 ”Jr. M||12 “Jr. L||13 ”Jr. XL||14 ”Sr. S||15 ”Sr. M||16 ”Sr. L|

To determine the size, you need to measure the circumference of the waist.Remember, the length of the thigh protector should be long enough to overlap the top edge of the knee protector, and the back protector should span a quarter of the back from the waist.
|KIDS YTH||JUNIOR JR||ADULTS SR|
|US Size||Yth. M||Yth. L||Jr. S||Jr. M||Jr. L||Sr.S||Sr. M||Sr. L||Sr. XL||Sr. XXL|

The existing traditional sizing system has been around for a long time (measuring the distance in inches from fingertips to elbow cuff), but it is currently not correct and does not take into account the recent trends in elongation of the elbow cuffs and the fact that the cuffs of gloves are getting shorter.Only fitting can guarantee the right choice. Use the sizing chart only as a rough guide to sizing. To do this, measure the distance between your fingertips and the lower edge of the elbow pad. Determine the approximate size from the table. The choice of gloves and elbow pads are interrelated – the gap between the cuff of the glove and the edge of the elbow pad should be minimal. When choosing gloves with a shortened cuff, use elongated elbow pads or special wrist guards. Do not choose gloves that are too tight in the hope of spreading them – you will need some freedom in your fingers and hands, gloves should not restrict movement.When choosing the upper material, take into account the intensity of the exercises, the possibility of replacing the palm material. The leather upper is more durable and designed for intensive use, the gloves with the polyester upper are lighter, they better fit the hand.
|Glove size||Size, inches||Size, cm|
|KIDS YTH||8 ”||20|
|JUNIOR JR||12 ”||30|
|ADULTS SR||14 ”||36|
PLAYER HELMETS AND MASKS
In order to provide an adequate level of protection, a hockey helmet must be properly fitted and fitted to minimize helmet displacement and maximize protection.When choosing a helmet for your initial fitting, refer to the size chart for head circumference. Adjust the size of the helmet over the head by loosening the side bolts. The helmet should fit snugly enough and not move with sudden head movements. Be sure to tighten the side bolts after adjusting the exact size. The depth of the helmet must be sufficient and its position on the head must be correct for maximum protection. The helmet should sit on the head so that the lower edge of the helmet is 1.5 cm above the eyebrow line.Adjust the length of the chin strap so that it is lightly in contact with the chin. When using a mask, adjust the length of the strap so that the chin guard lies exactly on the chin and the upper side edges of the mask fit exactly into the locking loops. The tension on the strap must be such that the mask and helmet cannot move.
|Helmet size||Head circumference, cm|
The size of EFSI hockey skates is the same as the size of regular shoes.The size of children’s skates is selected taking into account the height of the child’s foot during the season, but not more than one size. Determine the size with a ruler and proceed with the careful selection of your skates. Remember, the skate boot should sit on your foot as tightly as possible, your skating depends on it in the future. Put your skate on a simple toe, move your foot back as much as possible and lace up the boot. It is important to perform this shift and lace up the boot during fitting – the heel should go 5 – 7 mm back.If you feel that the heel moves too easily, try on a smaller skate. Get out of your chair and walk on the rubber mat. You should not feel any longitudinal or lateral play in the boot, it should sit tightly on your foot, but at the same time your foot should be comfortable, with your toes you can feel the nose cup from the inside, but not rest against it.
|Foot length, cm||Skates EFSI||Euro size||Foot length, cm||Skates EFSI||Euro size|
Put the helmet on your head so that the upper edge of the front cutout is 1 – 1.5 cm above the eyebrows.The helmet should fit snugly on the head, without any movement or play. The sweat protection strip must be securely attached to the inside of the helmet. The back of the helmet must be adjusted with the straps to ensure a secure fit. When choosing a helmet for your initial fitting, refer to the size chart for head circumference.

BLOCKER AND GOALTENDER TRAP
For the correct fit of the blocker, select the size so that the glove is exactly on the hand or slightly larger (but not more than 0.6 cm). The goalkeeper trap must provide a snug, comfortable fit on the arm, with no dangling or looseness.
|Pancake / Trap Size||YTH / KIDS||JR / JUNIOR||SR / ADULTS|

The main parameter in choosing the size of the flap is its total length.The total length of the shield consists of two measures: A. Height from the instep of the foot to the middle of the knee B. The desired height from the middle of the knee to the thigh. Measure your leg in a bent position (without shoes) and add parameters A + B.
|Shield size, inch||26||28||30||32||34||36|

Everything You Need to Know About Hockey Gloves
What were the first hockey gloves? What are they made of and what is the difference between professional and amateur models? And also about what to look for when choosing, read below.
Leggings for motorcyclists, for hockey players – gloves
There is often confusion about the name of this hockey equipment accessory. The thing is that initially it was leggings that were used, which differ from gloves by the presence of a long protective cuff.
The first hockey leggings appeared in the early 1880s. These were leather gloves insulated with fur. They protected more from the cold, but could soften minor blows to the hands or protected from falling on the ice.
The first improvement took place in 1931. After Montreal Maroon’s Babe Siebert suffered a broken toe, Coach Bill O’Brien placed a shoehorn in his gaiter to protect the injured toe. The trainer’s find prompted manufacturers to think about improving the design.
And in 1988, an epoch-making event took place. NHL hockey players began to use gloves with a shortened cuff. They attributed this to the fact that gloves that end at the wrist, rather than continuing a few inches to the forearm, allow for more effective wrist throwing and more freedom of club grip.Gradually, gloves with a short cuff completely ousted their, safer, but less comfortable, competitors from the market. In the hockey world, a phrase appeared, according to which the knowledgeable people were distinguished from the ignorant: “Leggings for motorcyclists, and for hockey players – gloves.”
In addition, as a result of evolution, modern gloves reliably protect the wrist from blows, and the palm is made of thin material for better grip. They have become lighter and hardly felt on the player’s hand.
How do hockey gloves work?
There are protective plates on the front of the glove. The same inserts are found in the fingers. They are made of multi-layered plastics that effectively absorb energy from impacts. For the outer surface of the glove, polyester or synthetic leather is used. Foam padding and multilayer plates, mainly of polypropylene, can be used to fill the space between the outer and inner casing of the glove.
The thumb, when embracing the club, occupies an isolated position on the hand and is located on top. This position increases the chance of damage. A blow to it can lead to a bone fracture or joint dislocation. Therefore, special attention is paid to this part. A separate thumb reinforcement insert is used here, which protects it from damage. Protective cuff – protects the upper part of the hand (wrist) and the lower part of the forearm.
The main criteria for the selection of gloves – protection and comfort
The palm is in direct contact with the club.It can be single-layer or multi-layer, depending on the model of the glove. Here, too, there can be an additional insert that prevents rubbing of the palm on the club. This part is made of durable, yet soft materials with high abrasion resistance. It can be genuine leather, leatherette or multilayer fabric. Sometimes also soft cushioning pads are sewn between layers of fabric on the palm of the glove. They mitigate vibrations when the club hits the puck sharply.
The main criterion for the level of gloves is the degree of protection and innovation of the materials used.
How do amateur gloves differ from professional ones?
Amateur gloves are made using regular foam, there are no reinforced parts and additional inserts. The top layer is usually nylon. The only additional reinforcement is in the thumb. Professional and amateur differ in the degree of protection.They use additional plates. The foam used here is not entirely simple. The manufacturing technology of this foam is such that when hitting with a club or hit by a puck, the force of the impact “dissipates”. The cuff and thumb of the professional glove are additionally reinforced. In professional gloves, the palm is additionally reinforced. Inside the glove, a special material is used that evaporates moisture. Also, professional gloves are usually lighter in weight than amateur ones.
How do I know the size of my hockey gloves?
It is necessary to measure the distance from the fingertips to the edge of the elbow pad and then correlate the obtained figures with a special table.Hockey gloves are measured in inches.
It should be noted that height, weight and age in the table are relative values. It is important that the gloves do not fit snugly against the edge of the elbow pad, as this will hinder movement. But there should not be a large gap either. In this case, the chance of injury increases.
How to evaluate the comfort of hockey gloves?
The main condition for the choice of gloves for the player is the comfort when fitting on the hand.After we have determined our size and chosen a model of gloves, we try on a glove on our hand and assess the degree of comfort during movement.
Life hack. Take your golf club and ball for fitting. Put on gloves and play a little with a ball club, rate the degree of comfort and convenience. Many hockey shops have synthetic ice for puck tests, and even a throwing zone, use this opportunity to see how comfortable the gloves are in action.
Fingers in gloves should bend and unbend easily, uncomfortable sensations should not arise.Gloves should also not be too soft, this significantly increases the risk of injury and discomfort from impacts.
The thermoformed wrist gloves are now on the market. The essence of the technology is that after exposure to heat, the part that protects the wrist takes the anatomical shape of the hockey player’s hand, which makes the use of gloves more convenient.
Do hockey gloves need special care?
Gloves are easy to maintain.Unpleasant odor can be a major problem. To avoid this, it is enough to regularly dry and ventilate them. The same actions will be essential for the care of all hockey ammunition. If necessary, the gloves can be washed in the washing machine on a delicate cycle. This will not only refresh them, but also get rid of bacteria. We recommend using a liquid detergent and a special mesh bag for washing. It can be purchased at any hardware store.
Most often, it is the palm of the glove that is erased.Modern hockey workshops offer a service for replacing only this part, and the cost will be significantly lower than new gloves. Well, if the purchase of new gloves is unavoidable, pay special attention to the degree of protection and comfort. It would be inappropriate to recommend a specific brand or model of gloves. For any hockey player, this is an individual choice. And if on the field the speed of decision-making can affect the result, then when choosing equipment, on the contrary, there is no need to rush. Try on and compare different models and brands and find your perfect gloves by following the advice in this article.
🏒 How to measure hockey gloves? [Updated 2021]
Most ice hockey glove manufacturers provide size charts to facilitate sizing.
Sizes are more or less the same for different brands, , but not always . If you wear 10 “gloves from Bauer and want to switch to CCM gloves, do not assume that 10” gloves will be the right size for you again.
Manufacturers of may size gloves in different ways., therefore you should always refer to the attached sizing charts.
Anyway, here is a general hockey glove size chart that should work for most gloves:
Size Chart for Typical Hockey Gloves
8 ” 9000 lb 5
from 4 to 7
3’3 ” to 4’1 ”
6 to 9
50 to 70 lbs
3 9 ” to 4 ‘7’ ‘
8 to 11
60 to 90 lb
from 4’3 “to 4’8”
from 9 to 12
70 to 100 lbs
from 4’7 “to 5’0”
from 11 to 14
80 to 110 lb
from 4’11 “to 5’4”

from 5’5 “to 5’9”
140 to 180 lb
5’7 “to 5’11”
160 to 200 lbs
5’9 “to 6’1”
Brands I know that use this or a very similar sizing chart are Bauer and CCM .If you look at one of the gloves on the Bauer website, you can see that you can enter your age, height, weight, and the distance between the tip of your middle finger and the base of your palm to determine the correct size.
Other brands like Warrior offer a slightly different calibration system:
Base of toe to elbow
900 8 ”
I personally do not like the Warrior sizing guide, primarily because is more inconvenient to measure the distance between the base of the finger and the elbow on .But if you buy gloves and come across such a size chart, you have no choice but to follow it.
It’s certainly nice to have a sizing chart to look at when choosing gloves. However, all of these charts have one drawback – they do not take into account the personal preferences of . And, objectively speaking, they cannot do it – this is the most accurate guidance you can get.
Some people like to have their gloves fit tighter, while others want more freedom around their fingers.In addition, some people may have abnormally long or short middle fingers, which can also be confusing.
Needless to say, sizing charts may not be accurate in these cases. Therefore, if you have special needs or preferences, make sure does not ignore them.
How to Measure Hockey Gloves Correctly
If you want to play competitive hockey, you definitely need to have the right set of hockey gloves.Newbies often buy any hockey glove from a retail store or online store where they get a good discount, but only a true pro can tell you how important a well-fitting hockey glove is, so here’s how to accurately measure hockey gloves.
What types of hockey gloves are there?
One of the main reasons hockey gloves are essential is because they protect your wrists and hands from the puck and sticks.Due to the great strength involved in the game, you can be seriously injured if you do not wear the correct protective equipment. In addition, these gloves are also essential to provide some ice protection for your hands when dropped.
However, you won’t take advantage of these benefits if you don’t fit. When it comes to the fit of a hockey glove, two general types are the traditional fit and the anatomical fit. The player must choose one of these two based on style, feel and comfort.
The traditional four roller hockey glove generally has a larger design. This means that there is more room inside the glove for the player’s hands. With all this space, it offers the player a full range of motion with less resistance from the side of the glove when he moves his fingers.
Anatomically fitted glove designed to give the player a lightweight feel and fit, making the player feel like it’s just an extension of their hand.They are very similar to tapered gloves, but with a more ergonomic design and greater range of motion. You end up with a tighter fit without sacrificing mobility.
How to measure hockey gloves?
Measuring gloves isn’t exactly rocket science, and with our step-by-step instructions, you’ll find the perfect one right away.
- Start by measuring from the base of your hand to the top of your middle finger.Use inches as the unit.
- Once you find the exact inch measurement, double it to get the glove size. This is still an estimate. As an example, if you measured your palm and got eight inches, then look for a size 16 hockey glove, as it will most likely fit you best.
- To further test if the glove is the perfect fit for you, wear it over your hand and carefully see if the cuff completely covers your wrist.Also make sure that your fingertips do not protrude beyond the fingertips on the glove.
If your glove is smaller, it will not protect your hand properly as your fingertips are likely to stick out, leaving your fingers vulnerable to most impacts. Likewise, the cuff will be short, leaving a fairly large gap between the top of the cuff and the bottom of the elbow pad.
In contrast, if your glove is larger, it will affect the mobility of your wrist, as the top of the cuff will overlap the bottom of the elbow too much.In addition, even your fingers may not go far enough into the fingertips of the glove, further reducing the mobility of your fingers.
General table of dimensions
- 12 ” glove fits players from 4’11 to 5’4 ”
- The 13 “glove will fit players from 5’5” to 5’9 “.
- 14 ” glove will fit players from 5’7 to 5’11 ”
- 15 “glove will fit players from 5’9” to 6’2 “
What are the characteristics of a good hockey glove?
Now that you know what size you need, here is a list of essential and must-have features to look out for in a hockey glove if you want to play professionally.
Padding is an integral part of a hockey glove. Cheap gloves will be covered with single density foam only. Besides being quite soft, it also doesn’t protect your wrists and hands well.
In contrast, middle-class gloves will have an extra layer of higher density foam than a single one. The best gloves will have plastic inserts, among other things. To find out what materials are inside the glove, simply squeeze the edges of the foam.
With good quality gloves you can also feel the layers. Another advantage of high quality ice hockey gloves is that they have additional padding in certain areas, such as the sides of the fingers and hands.
2. Palm tree
Expensive hockey gloves will have high quality, durable leather that is likely to be reinforced in areas of increased wear. This reinforcement is important for players who intend to play regularly as some areas of the palm wear out faster than others.
The jacket or padding material will be thicker and more likely to be nylon, especially for high-end hockey gloves.
Every hockey glove, regardless of price, comes with an armored thumb that does not bend. This is important as it prevents the dislocation of your thumb if the stick breaks out of your hand.
High quality gloves will give you some movement in your thumb while remaining completely safe.If you want a glove with a flexible thumb, look for street hockey or lacrosse gloves.
Knowing how to measure hockey gloves will help you determine the exact size you need for your hand. The right glove is not only about fitting it, but also the security it offers you. It will reliably protect your hands and wrist during professional play and provide great mobility.

Hockey Gloves Manual
– install and purchase
If you are going to play hockey, you will need a set of hockey gloves. The pair you choose will depend on a number of factors. Common factors when buying hockey gloves include
- Fit (anotomic, snug or loose / traditional)
All these and other topics will be covered in this article
Why do you need hockey gloves
Hockey gloves mainly protect the hands and wrists from sticks and pucks.They can also help protect your hands from ice if you fall.
Most common hockey glove brands:
- Bauer (Valop, Supreme, Nexus)
- CCM (SuperTacks, JetSpeed)
- Warrior (Secret, Alpha, Dynasty)
- Less common: Sher-Wood, Tron, Graf, Winnwell and Powertek
- Reebok (now under CCM)
- Easton (bought by Bauer)
$ 50- $ 200 new
Differences in materials / characteristics in price ranges
Padding: Cheap gloves will have single (medium) density foam padding.He’s pretty bland and limited in what he can protect against. Mid-range gloves will have a layer of high density foam on top of this, and the best gloves will also have plastic inserts on top of it. You can tell what materials are in the glove by squeezing the sides of a piece of foam, you can feel the layers in quality gloves. Another advantage of higher grade gloves is the extra padding in certain areas, such as the sides of the hands and fingers (not just the back).
Jacket: The best gloves will have a thicker and stronger nylon jacket (the material that covers the padding).
Palm: The palms of more expensive gloves will be made of better quality and more durable leather and can be more reinforced in areas of increased wear. This type of reinforcement is recommended for players who will play regularly as some areas of the palm wear out faster than others.
Thumb: All hockey gloves have an armored thumb that cannot bend back.This is to prevent the thumb from dislocating if the stick breaks out of the hands as they point downwards. Better gloves will be more flexible in the thumb and wrist (although the fingers may need to break a little). If you’re looking at a glove with a fully flexible thumb, similar to your other fingers, it’s probably a lacrosse or street hockey glove.
Hockey glove size and fit
Hockey gloves are measured in inches (usually whole).13, 14, and 15 inches are generally considered adult sizes, with any smaller as junior or youth sizes. This length represents the distance from the fold of your inner elbow to the base of your fingers. While this may seem like an odd way of measuring, it is a legacy from a time when hockey gloves were much longer than they are today.
When trying on gloves, pay attention to several points for which they fit. If possible, spend some time shooting and using a stick while doing this.
- You should have about ¼ inch of space in your fingertips, and when you clench your hand into a fist, they should not stretch the material that connects the palm to the glove at the ends.
- Finger fractures should be comfortable and should match well with the knuckles. This can vary from brand to brand, so try it all on!
- The fracture of the wrist must line up with the wrist on the underside.
- Coach Jeremy’s note (I like the mobility with gloves, my typical test is the ability to show the middle finger and thumb up)
General personal preference for hockey gloves
You need to decide how wide the glove you want.Typically anything with a four-roll design will have a fairly wide, “traditional” fit, while other styles can be tight-fitting or in-between. You can also choose the degree of protection you want. Generally, gloves that provide better mobility will have less protection, while gloves that provide more protection (longer cuffs for more forearm and wrist protection) will have less movement.
Below is a list of the most common brands and how they fit.Please note that in this listing refers to current generation gloves and that older gloves may fit differently
- Close / Medium fit:
- Bauer (Vapor, Supreme)
- Warrior (Hidden, Alpha)
- CCM Jetspeed
- Sher Wood (Nexon)
- Wide fit:
- Bauer Nexus
- Sher Wood (T90, 5030)
- Warrior (Franchise, Remix, Bonafide, Dynasty)
- Easton Pro
- CCM (4Roll, 4Roll Pro, SuperTacks)
- Eagle (majority)
Life Expectancy, General Care and Maintenance
The first thing that wears on the glove is usually the palm, and usually the palm of the glove, which holds the top of the stick (where it is attached).How long it takes will depend on several factors, including how often you play, what tape you use, how hard you move your hand, and what quality gloves you have. This can be from less than 1 year to several years.
Your LHS (local hockey shop) can probably make small patchwork clothes for about $ 10 or a full palm replacement for about $ 50. If you have cheap gloves it might not be worth it, but if you would otherwise buy another $ 150 set of gloves, this is something you might want to explore.
Be sure to dry your gloves properly each time. If they stay wet for a long time, the palms will become rough and brittle faster and start to smell (very, very unpleasant!)
The quality of the gloves you need depends on the level of hockey you play. If you’re just playing Shinny in ODR with friends, or stick and puck, a cheap one will do. If you play in a more competitive league, you are more likely to get it from time to time, and you should get something a little better.If this is the case, look for something at least good enough to have dual density foam throughout the glove.
Used gloves are also an option, although they are not as good as new ones – the palm will be quite rough if used frequently and will wear out faster. In addition, leather is more sensitive to odor than other equipment, and if it smells bad when dry, it will be much worse when wet.
Where to buy hockey gloves
If you have a local hockey shop in your hometown, then drop by and try on the large assortment of gloves that are out there to find the one you like.Make sure you remember your size and how the glove should fit (see this article) to help you find the right glove.
Buying hockey gloves online
If you don’t have a local hockey shop in your city or know exactly what gloves you need, I recommend buying gloves online. I recommend a number of popular online hockey retailers with good return policies. I contacted them below, browse their large selection, find a great deal, and if the glove doesn’t fit when it arrives, you can return it.
Recommended online shops
If you are looking for used gloves, you can look for recycled sports facilities nearby or see local classifieds such as Kijiji in Canada or Craigslist in the US. Normally, I would not recommend that adults use hockey gloves.

Complete Hockey Equipment
The helmet is the most important piece of protective equipment; its proper fit is a serious matter.Make sure it is comfortable and snug against the top of the player’s head.
When buying a hockey helmet, ask the player to try on different brands for convenience and comfort. First, measure the circumference of the player’s head about an inch above the eyebrows. Then check the sizing chart for the brand in question. Each manufacturer has a table in which helmet sizes correspond to head sizes. Hockey equipment sellers should have these tables for reference; they are also available on the manufacturers’ websites.
When trying on a helmet, open it to its maximum value, then gradually reduce the size until a comfortable fit is achieved. Tighten and secure the helmet adjustment, then attach the chin strap securely so that it gently touches the chin. A properly fitted helmet should fit snugly without causing headaches or discomfort, but should not be oversized. A helmet that is too large can lead to unnecessary injury because the protection built into it by the manufacturer will not work properly.Never paint or apply stickers to the helmet shell, as this will weaken its structure.
Regularly inspect the inside and outside of the helmet for cracks or signs of wear and replace immediately if found. Replace loose or missing screws if necessary. A decent helmet should last five to six years.
Mouthguards are also important for protecting the head. They not only protect your teeth, but they also protect against concussion.
This is a must-have for Rockets players. A neck guard can help prevent possible neck cuts when players collide and fall on the ice.
Shoulder pads provide stability and protection for the shoulder blades and shoulder muscles. Shoulders can also provide some chest protection, which can be useful if you’re playing defense and blocking punches.
For a proper fit, measure the player’s chest just below the armpits.Refer to the manufacturer’s sizing chart to determine the appropriate shoulder pad size. The center of the player’s shoulder should line up with the center of the shoulder pads. A good hockey shoulder pad should provide protection for your chest, ribs, back, collarbone and forearms. The player must have a good range of motion with the shoulder pads. To test your range of motion, raise your arms above shoulder level so the pads do not dig into your neck.
After injury, elbows are prone to infections, difficult to heal and prone to repeated injury.It’s easy to see why a good pair of KNEE PADS are such an important part of a protective gear set.
When properly fitted, the top of the elbow pad should line up with the bottom of the shoulder pad and extend as far as the forearm to the top of the glove. The elbow pad should not restrict elbow movement. With elbow pads on, test your range of motion by bending your elbow while observing the restrictions.
For HOCKEY GLOVES, more is better than less.Gloves not only provide protection from sticks, boards or pucks, but also help absorb the impact of your club when hitting goal. Small, form-fitting gloves look silly and offer less forearm protection. One of the safety features of hockey gloves is the thumb guard, which is a reinforced area that locks into position that helps protect it from sprains and breakages. Most hockey gloves are virtually the same in design and function, with the only significant difference being the length of the cuff that extends from the wrist.Attackers sometimes prefer shorter cuffs, which gives them more flexibility in wrist movements. Protectors prefer longer cuffs for maximum protection.
Hockey gloves are usually worn over the fingers like loose winter gloves. The top of the glove should extend to the forearm to the bottom of the elbow pads (excluding the short cuff). The main consideration when fitting a hockey glove is to keep the gap between the glove and the elbow piece as small as possible.The glove should allow freedom of movement in all positions without chafing or restricting movement. Measure the distance between your fingertips and the elbow pad to determine the size of your hockey glove.
Hockey pants are important for protecting the groin, hips, waist and buttocks and, surprisingly, the tailbone. There is nothing more painful than a bent or broken tailbone. This injury can easily occur due to contact with ice, boards or the goalpost.A pair of good quality hockey pants with appropriate padding in all of these areas is crucial. Good quality hockey pants should last for years.
ATHLETIC SPORTER AND CUP are essential for male players. A special larger protector is made for goalkeepers. Pelvis protectors are available for female players.
Belt for stockings or Velcro
GARTER BELT is used to hold hockey socks.They work well. Some players prefer a new type of compression shoe with Velcro to the feet to hold the hockey socks in place.
SKIN PADS are another important piece of safety equipment. Don’t skimp here. A heavy and durable shin with high quality inner padding is the best choice. A blow to the knee or lower leg, even if it does not bring the pillow into physical contact with the leg, has the strongest impact.Huge and painful bruises from frontal blows to the face are not uncommon. Again, the right size of equipment is critical. If the shin pads are too long, they will hinder the flexibility of the ankle and skate. A shin support that is too short does not provide adequate protection.
When installing, make sure the headrest cap is centered on the patella. The calf padding should be close to the shin. Measure from the center of the kneecap to the top of the skate boot; match the player’s shin size to the shin guard size.
Stitched Hockey Skates usually fit 1-1 ½ sizes smaller than a player’s normal shoe size. When fitted, children allow ½ size increases. 1/2 size is equivalent to one toe between the heel and back of the skate. Anything over the recommended ½ size can cause premature skate breakage.
Sitting and putting on the socks that will be worn during skating, the skater must put on skates and rest his heel on the skates.The fingers should not touch the toe. When lacing the boot, keep the heel back to ensure a snug fit. Once the lacing is complete, the skater should stand up and walk 10-15 minutes to sit properly and feel like hockey skates. The foot should feel comfortable with the back of the insole firmly attached. Keep your toes flat and flat so that you can just snuggle up to the toe.
To determine the correct length of the HOCKEY KEY, the player must stand in a stocking and place the toe of the hockey stick on a flat surface between his feet.A general rule of thumb is to mark and cut off the club handle where it touches the tip of the player’s nose. Standing with skates, the stick should reach or just below the player’s chin.
Correct size is important. If the JERSEY is too small, it may be too tight and uncomfortable. If the jersey is too large, it gives defenders something that they can easily slip out of sight of the referee.

The following list is the minimum equipment required to participate in the league.
Hockey skates without brake belt or thigh pads (not required, but recommended in youth divisions)
The information below has been found on hockey equipment distributor websites and can serve as a guide for choosing the right equipment for your player. Thanks to Matt Hackett & CHILL for putting it together!
1. HECC approved helmet with face cage
The ice hockey helmet must fit snugly to prevent displacement and provide maximum protection.You should also look for comfortable equipment. Although most helmets are covered in protective foam, some helmets do better than others. Each manufacturer’s sizing charts can be found on their individual websites, or many hockey distributors have sizing charts based on head circumference or hat size. The helmet should lie on the head so that the rim is one finger width above the eyebrow and touches the crown of the head.
Mouthpieces are available in 2 sizes for adults and youth.They range from $ 3 to $ 45 and will have more formability and protection the higher the price. There are also mouthguards specifically for players with suspenders. All mouth guards must have a strap for attaching to the helmet cage.
3. Hockey elbow pads
Elbow pads should be snug enough to stay in place, but not too tight to restrict your movement. The elbow pads are adjustable with Velcro, so choose a pair that is comfortable for your hand and adjust the Velcro straps.Correctly fitted elbow pads should cover the shoulder pads to the cuff of the glove. Some manufacturers classify their elbow pads by inches and some by size (small, medium and large).
4. Hockey Gloves
Gloves have many variables depending on the abilities of your players. A short or long cuff provides more mobility or more protection. The length of the gloves should be determined by measuring the distance between the base of the fingers and the elbow.This in inches should be a suitable glove size.
5. Hockey belt
Hockey belt protects the hip and tailbone. There is a difference between hockey belts and roller hockey belts. Roller hockey belts are more form-fitting and streamlined. Ice hockey pants or belt are more bulky and loose. The ice hockey pants are not designed to be used under the roller hockey pants, so indicate that you are looking for a roller hockey belt.All manufacturers have different size charts and are usually based on the waist in inches. Some manufacturers offer 2 sizes (Senior and Junior) while others offer 3 sizes (Senior, Junior and Youth).
6. Protective cover Hard Shell
Choosing the right size is critical to ensuring proper protection for your sports cup. An athletic cup needs to fit comfortably and its size is vital for maximum comfort. The size of a sports cup is directly proportional to body weight and therefore easy to determine.The sports trophies are divided into 3 categories: mens, youths and youths. Female pelvic protectors are also available in sizes for women and girls.
7. Hockey shin pads
To properly fit the shin pads, it is best to have the player seated. Measure from the center of the kneecap to the top of your skate boot. Match the player’s shin to the length of the ankle. Shields that are too long or too short can cause the knee or lifter to be exposed and unprotected.The shroud flaps should wrap around the calves. Shin guards should be secured with safety straps or tape, not tight hockey stockings.
8. Shoulder pads or padded shirt
A good shoulder pad will provide protection in all areas including the collarbone, ribs, sternum, chest, back and biceps. A good fit is important to prevent injury. Bust measurement should be taken just below the armpits around the bust. Match the player’s chest size to the matching shoulder pad.Also consider the level of play. The shoulder pads should fit snugly, while the main tips of the shoulder should be exactly under the shoulder pads, and the bicep pads should not touch the player’s elbow pads. The lined shirt can be worn in place of the beginner’s shoulder pads.
9. Inline skates
Dimensions are shown in the size table at the bottom of this page.
9A. Wheels: Wheels are defined by two attributes – diameter and hardness.Diameter is size and hardness is hardness. Hardness range from 73A to 88A, with 73A being the softest. For our surface in its current state, the softer the wheel, the better the grip. While using softer wheels on our roller is better for grip and traction, it will also lead to faster wheel wear on rougher surfaces such as driveway concrete or asphalt. The recommended hardness range for the NRH roller is 73A-78A.
The hockey stick is the second most important piece of equipment. Handles are available as separate blocks or as separate combinations of shaft and blade. Hockey sticks are also available in older and younger sizes. Most players under the age of 14 and under 110 pounds should use a junior club for maximum control, feel and flexibility. When adjusting the length of the stick, players should be on their skates with the tip of the club blade on the ground and the tip of the club should be cut approximately the length between the forehead. and the chin of the players.A club that is too long or too short can lead to improper riding technique. Ideally for beginners, when skating, the tip of the stick should be at the height of their nose.
How to identify the “handle” of a hockey stick
The first question you are likely to ask yourself when you first think about playing hockey is, “Should I shoot with my left or right?” The answer is … probably left-handed. Why? Roughly 90% of the world’s population is right-handed, and most likely you are too.If you’re left-handed, just flip everything in this article. There is some controversy over the choice of how to hold the hockey stick, but we will cover as many angles as possible so you can make an informed decision for yourself.
Dominant hand at top
Why do you want your stronger and more coordinated hand to be on top, you ask? Your upper hand is the hand that “anchors” and stabilizes your club, as your puck handling, shooting and passing are skills that require great coordination and control.Yes, it would be beneficial to have a strong hand underneath so you can use it to increase your punching power. But even if you could add 10 miles per hour to your shot, hypothetically, would it be worth it if it was at the expense of your shooting accuracy and puck handling skills? Nope.
Suppose for a moment that the dominant hand below actually creates a more powerful punch, as this seems to be a popular argument regardless of its validity. As stated earlier, the upper arm is the anchor arm that stabilizes the grip when the lower arm initiates maneuvers.With this in mind, think about how difficult it is to train your subordinate arm to become as coordinated as your dominant arm. Have you ever tried writing with your subdominant hand? Probably pretty sloppy, right?
The fact is that improving coordination is much more difficult than developing strength. So use your most coordinated hand in the position where the most coordination is required – from above. And strengthen the lower arm and arm to increase the power of the punch.
There is a simple test that can be done to take into account the “natural” tendencies of the novice hockey player to stick. Keep in mind that this is not a foolproof test and should only be used as a secondary guideline for determining your hand. Take a kitchen broom and start sweeping. Most likely, your hands will be facing in different directions. You don’t hold the hockey stick like that, but, nevertheless, the ultimate goal is still achieved.If your right hand is dominant, chances are your right hand will be on top of the broomstick and your left hand will be in the middle. In any case, you should most likely hold your hockey stick in the same way you hold your broomstick.

How to measure a golf club?
The length of your stick, although largely a matter of personal preference, will affect your ability to steer, hit, and hit the puck.This is an important but often overlooked aspect of the game that you can use to satisfy your strengths.
Yes, certain positions and playing styles tend to use certain club lengths. But before we get to that, let’s talk about the basics.
Bulk sticks are generally divided into three categories: adult, middle and junior. Adult (or adult) clubs are typically 60 inches long, intermediate clubs are about five inches shorter, and juniors are 46 to 54 inches long.Adult females usually get Intermediate or more flexible Senior golf clubs.
When buying golf clubs online, remember that some companies measure the length right from the shaft to the bottom of the heel of the blade. Others measure the distance from the top of the shaft to the floor when the blade is on the tip with the shaft against the wall.
Do not buy a longer club for a younger player. This will hinder the development of the young player’s skills, and chopping off a club that is too long will make it harder, which is usually preferred by physically stronger players.You can always add an extension cord to the pole when the child is older.
Put on your skates
The most common rule of thumb for stick sizing is that when you are skating, the end of the stick held by the tip of the blade on the floor should be between your chin and nose. For players who like short sticks, the end of the stick will be at throat level, and long sticks can hit you in the eyebrows.
In stockings, nose or slightly higher is the target for a medium stick.
However, some advise beginners to err on the side of being too short. This school of thought dictates that if a player is on skates with their arms hanging straight at their sides and the blade of the club is hitting the ice, any part of the club that extends beyond the upper arm must be cut off.
Beyond the basics
Some players like Wayne Gretzky and Sidney Crosby like short putters. Others like long clubs – Zdeno Chara from Boston, 6’9 ”, was granted an exemption from the National Hockey League’s 63 ” maximum and uses a 65 ” club).
In a broad sense, club manipulators are like short sticks. The stick is lighter for quick, precise movements, and the puck is easier to carry close to the body to protect it from defenders.
A medium stick can usually be found in the hands of a versatile player who wants to be able to dig puck in a corner, poke checks, slap or intercept a pass in the neutral zone. how to handle the washer.
Defenders usually wear the longest sticks.The reasons are obvious – a larger wingspan is better at blocking passages and fire, the check range is increased, and these punches from the point give much more energy.
