Gloves

Goal Keeper Glove Thoughts

There are so many options, price points, and personal preferences when it comes to choosing the right pair of gloves. 

Lincoln doesn’t really have a sporting goods store that gives much variety in options, so you have to measure the hands and most likely go online to find a top level pair of gloves. That being said, it’s not necessary to spend a lot of money to get a good pair of gloves. You can find them in town. I’ve purchased gloves at play it again sports and been happy with what they had available for $40. 

For older goalkeepers that are playing at an elite level, I could see spending between 75 and $120 on a pair of gloves. At the high school level this is an important investment, and most keepers will have two pair. One for practice, and one for games. If you play a lot of matches on turf, it will tear the gloves up. The more durable gloves will last longer but are typically less comfortable and don’t have as much gripping power. I recommend a more durable pair for practice, and a more comfortable pair with more grip for games.

Just like with shoes, you can often find a really nice pair on sale. The most important thing is fit. Here is a link to a goalkeeper store that does a really good job of educating you on the full range of options and how to measure your fingers to get the right fit:
