Goalie hockey gear? (2023)

What gear do you need to be a hockey goalie?

Goalies wear a helmet, throat protector, neck guard, chest protector, special padded goalie pants (that look like padded shorts), a glove, a blocker, a jock or jill, pads on their legs, skates, and use a thick goalie stick designed to protect the “5 Hole”.

What order do you put goalie gear in?

Step 1: put on your undergarments. Step 2: pull on your hockey or goalie pants and make sure they're snug. Some goalies wear suspenders to help with keeping the bulky pants up. Step 3: if you're wearing knee pads, put them on after the pants.

How do you know if goalie pads are too big?

An ideal fit is 2-3 inches above the middle of the thigh. Any higher and the pad will come up into the bend of the leg/bottom of crotch and will restrict skating movement. If the pad comes below the middle of the thigh, the five-hole may not be covered and the knees could be exposed to sticks and pucks.

Why do goalies drink water after a goal?

Frederik Andersen doesn't go to that extreme, but the Toronto Maple Leafs goalie does drink between 6-8 liters of water on a game day to help avoid dehydration. No wonder a lot of NHL goalies reach for the water bottle on the back of their net after every whistle.

What do coaches look for in a goalie?

Skating ability.

Ability to move on your feet efficiently and with as little effort as possible means that more energy can be spent tracking pucks and making decisions. Build your foot game. Be smooth. Be fast.

What does the +1 mean in goalie pads?

The +1 sizing system is standard for leg pads, meaning that “+1” is an extra inch added to the top of the leg pad. This addition helps goalies with their butterfly position as well as with their five-hole coverage. Some goal pads come with a +2” sizing system, which is more common with high level, experienced goalies.
