GK Gear


*GK kit (jersey, shorts)  is in MENS sizing.*

Full time GK’s
Green jersey, green shorts, and green socks
Purple jersey, purple shorts, and purple socks
*Girls can order black shorts instead of the green/purple if you prefer the women’s fit shorts*
We do not want to have GK’s wearing pennies or some random jersey as the rest of the team must have the proper jersey at each game. 

You do not need to purchase any of the field player jerseys as you are a full-time GK.

Half-time/Part-Time GK’s
Green Jersey (recommend if only getting 1).

No other part of the GK jersey is required as you will be getting all field player uniform pieces however you can get the purple jersey and/or shorts and socks if you would like to have the full kit. You could also wear the alternate color of jersey as a potential other option for a GK jersey beyond the green jersey. We do not want to have GK’s wearing pennies or some random jersey as the rest of the team must have the proper jersey at each game. 

Use a cheaper training pair of gloves that you use at GK training and your team training that can be a backup pair during games. 
Use the same brand but better model of the glove for games only. Gloves are quick to break in and could be done just in warm-up before the first game of use.
Spines/finger saves: That is all your preference. The biggest thing they add is stability in your hand and finger but can limit movement/freedom in the fingers especially. This is where it is up to each GK to choose what they are looking for/need in their gloves. 

Measure the circumference of the part of your palm just below the knuckles, excluding your thumb. 

Round up to the next whole inch, then add 1 to the measurement to determine your Keeper glove size.

i.e. 7.5" -> 8" + 1 = 9. Thus, 9 would be the Keeper glove size.

Measure both hands, and order the bigger size if they are different. Remember: Goalkeeping gloves should be worn big, generally 1/2" to 1" over the end of your fingertips. Wearing gloves any bigger than this will make it extremely difficult to catch the ball.
