Always fit goal pads while wearing skates. Kneel down into each pad, making sure the kneecap is in the middle of the knee roll.

The large vertical roll should be on the outside of each leg. After securing all the straps, the pad should extend from the toe of the skate to 4” above the knee. The pads should also have additional padding at the back of the leg which fits under the straps. The top of the pads should extend approximately 3” above the bottom of the pants.

It is recommended that leg coverings such as hockey socks be worn under goalie pads.

Pads should air dry to prevent mildew. Straps should be checked regularly and be replaced as needed.

A leather conditioner can be rubbed on the pads to prevent premature breakdown.
