Goaltender – Athletic Support

Protective caps of the shoulder pads should fit securely over the top of the shoulders and extend to meet the elbow pads. The shoulder area, including the upper back, chest and upper arms should be completely covered by the shoulder pads. It is recommended that the back of the shoulder pads should overlap slightly with the pants. The upper arm pads should fit securely around the biceps and triceps area. The plastic cups are designed to protect the shoulder and disperse any force around the area.

Players should be able to reach arms above shoulder height without the pads digging into the neck area.

Ensure there are no cracks in the padding and all rivets and straps are intact.
