Ball Hockey Goalie Pads in Canada
Franklin Sports Team Licensed Street Hockey Goalie Equipment Set – S/M Goalie Pads Catch Glove & Blocker – NHL Official Licensed Product
These are great steals for the price they’re at. My 6 and 10-year-old love it. It was a bit large for the 6-year-old though but she still played in it and her team won!
These are able to hold up consistent plays. My only complaint is that kids had a hard time putting them on themselves.
Franklin Sports Street Hockey Goalie Equipment Set – NHL Youth Street Hockey Goalie Pads – Leg Pads, Catch Glove, and Blocker
This is the best value for the money! Heavy-duty set, perfect for any player. They’re easy to slip on, are very heavy duty and absorb the impact from tough shots very well. The pads do take a few games to break in and loosen up, but once they have reached a period of breaking in their incredibly easy and comfortable to maneuver in.
I know it sounds too good to be true but damn! This set has me sold, for real. The pads have great padding to them, the blocker is decent, and the glove (while a bit stiff, initially) is actually pretty decent.
The stitching on it is way better than plenty of expensive products out there, and the straps are holding up well despite us really pulling on them tightly.

Rollerfly Goalie Slide Plates For Inline Or Ball Hockey
At first, I was hesitant about spending 200 bucks on a couple of plastic, but there is nothing out there that can do what these rollerfly slide plates do.
Before I got this baby, I was seeing my Chiro disc weekly to get my knees and hips worked on because of how sore I was on my pads. Then I got this two months ago, it’s a night and day difference. The stress and pain on my hips and knees went away immediately. I’m able to drop into a butterfly position, make sliding half-butterfly saves, and handle dekes in shootouts with better movement and confidence.
My knees also don’t hurt after games anymore.
I was only playing 1 game a night, and that was starting to become a struggle. Since purchasing these, I’m playing 3 and 4 games a night. They really do put a lot less stress on your body.
