Hockey pants are fitted according to waist size.
Pants should be fitted with the shin pads on to ensure that the pant leg overlaps with the upper padding of the shin pad by 2 inches.
Female players should fit the hips first then check the position of the leg & kidney pads.
Correct positioning of the rib, hip, thigh, and kidney padding ensures effective coverage and protection of these areas.
Padding on the bottom of the seat of the pants should cover and protect the tailbone. Proper fit is essential for maximum protection and unrestricted movement of the legs and trunk as well.
The player should be able to squat comfortably with the padding remaining in place for proper fit.
