- Shin guards should cover the length of your leg, from ankle to knee minus one - two inches.
- They should offer maximum protection while at the same time not hindering performance of the hockey player.
- The best advice we can give players who wear shin pads it to remove them as soon as their activity is finished, this prevents the legs from sweating and getting irritated.
