Learn about Junior Hockey Gloves

Junior hockey gloves are an essential part of a young player’s gear, offering both protection and enhanced control during play. These gloves are designed specifically for children and young teens, fitting their smaller hands and providing the necessary protection for the intensity of youth hockey. They come in various sizes, typically ranging from 10” to 12”, and are made from materials that balance durability and comfort. When selecting junior hockey gloves, consider factors like the age of the player, the glove’s material, sizing, and the level of protection it offers.

How to Choose Junior Hockey Gloves

Choosing the right size for junior hockey gloves is crucial. Measure the distance from the base of the palm to the top of the middle finger, then double this measurement to find the correct glove size. For instance, if the measurement is 6 inches, look for a 12” glove. This sizing ensures a snug fit, which is important for both protection and stick control.

Junior Hockey Gloves FAQs

What is the difference between cheap and expensive junior hockey gloves?

The main differences are in materials and construction. More expensive gloves generally offer better protection with layers of high-density foam and plastic inserts, along with more durable leather palms and enhanced mobility in the thumb and wrist areas.

How do I know if the junior hockey gloves fit correctly?

A proper fit means there’s about a ¼” space in the fingertips, and the gloves align well with the wrist and knuckles. The gloves should not restrict movement, and when the hand is curled into a fist, it shouldn’t overly stretch the material.

How should junior hockey gloves be maintained?

To extend the life of the gloves, they should be dried properly after each use. If they remain wet, the palms can become rough and brittle faster. Minor repairs, such as patching holes in the palms, can be done at most hockey shops.

What brands are recommended for junior hockey gloves?

Popular brands include Bauer, CCM, Warrior, and True. Each brand offers different fits and styles, so it’s important to try on several to find the best fit and comfort for the young player.
