These pads offer protection to the shoulders, upper back, chest and arm area above the elbow.
The protective caps should be positioned on the top of the shoulders while the arm pads extend downward to meet the elbow pads.
There should also be a slight overlap at the back with the top of the pants. Proper fit is ensured if the player has good shoulder range while wearing his or her pads.
The player should be able to lift his or her arms above shoulder level without the pads digging into the neck.
