Youth hockey shoulder pads come in styles engineered to protect the child at every level of youth play. When shopping for hockey shoulder pads, first consider how much protection your child needs. Youth players require less shoulder and chest protection than a high school or college ice hockey player, who engages in more on-ice contact. Next consider the overall fit, mobility, and comfort, making sure the shoulder pads don't ride up when your child moves his or her arms up and down, and from side to side. Also make sure the pads protect your child enough in the stomach, between the bottom of the chest protector and top of the hockey pants
, and from the elbow pads
to the end of the shoulder pads. Consult our shoulder pads fitting guide
to find the correct size youth shoulder pads for your child. Pure Hockey offers youth hockey shoulder pads by top makers, including Bauer
, and others, and in a variety of styles to provide the amount of protection your child needs.
