“What size hockey shin guards do I need?” Understanding how to properly fit youth shin guards

Hockey Shin Guards - Shin guards can be worn over or under the hockey skate boot tongue. There is no right way or wrong way, it comes down to preference and comfort. Whichever way is chosen, there is a different measurement for each.

Over the Skate Tongue

Sitting at a 90¼ angle with skates on your feet, measure from the center of your kneecap to 1” below the top of the skate's tongue. Correspond this measurement with the sizing chart below or on the description page. ALWAYS TRY ON THE SHINGUARDS

Under the Skate Tongue

Sitting at a 90¼ angle with skates on your feet, measure from the center of your kneecap to the top of the skate's tongue. Correspond this measurement with the sizing chart below or on the description page.
ALWAYS TRY ON THE SHINGUARDS

With a proper fit all gaps are sealed between the skate and the shin guard, thus ensuring complete coverage and protection. The knee should rest at the center of the knee doughnut, providing full leg mobility. If this is not the case when in use, you've chosen the wrong size.
