Elbow Pads should be comfortable but snug. The elbow should fit into the cup of the pad to allow for maximum mobility.
The top of the elbow pad should protect the bicep without restricting movement.
The elbow pads should also protect the forearms from slashes without protruding into the glove cuff.
Test the range of motion by bending the arm at the elbow, checking for any restrictions. Elbow pads worn too large will result in a noticeable decline in arm flex range due to pad movement during play.
Measurements for Elbow Pads - Measure the length in inches from the middle of the bicep to the cuff of your glove. Use this measurement to find your corresponding elbow pad size.
When fastened securely, there should be no gap between the pad and either the biceps extension of the shoulder pad or the cuff of the glove. Players who wear a short cuff style glove should choose the longer model of elbow pad.
Please note: The elbow pads sizing chart above is for your reference only. Each elbow pad varies depending on what brand you choose.
