Equipment Safety Goaltender Catcher & Blocker
TABLE OF CONTENTS
With the catcher and blocker on, when arms and hands are lowered to the side, the gloves should not fall off. The blocker should allow for easy, comfortable gripping, with control of the stick. The bottom of the pack-pad of the blocker should never be warped, as this exposes the ends of the fingers to possible injury.
The catcher must have a heavily padded cuff, which overlaps the arm pad to offer maximum protection. If the paddling becomes lumpy or spongy when pressing into the glove, it’s time to replace it.
