Hockey elbow pads are often an afterthought on the list of essential hockey equipment for your child. Elbows withstand a lot of contact during the course of a game, so don't let an old or ill-fitting hockey elbow pad cause an avoidable injury to your child. Pure Hockey carries kids' elbow pads from top makers, including Bauer, CCM, and Warrior.
Be careful to understand sizing. Your child's forearms and triceps should not be exposed to flying sticks and pucks, nor should the pads shift around on the arms during play. And resist buying larger hockey elbow pads for your child, thinking he or she will "grow into it." A good pair of kids' elbow pads will fit snugly and should feel like an extension of the arm. Our guide to fitting elbow pads will help you choose the correct size.
