Tips

Three Tips for Goalie Glove Care

  • Always wet your gloves before a session. I use water. This is so your gloves don’t get dried out and stay sticky.
  • Wash your gloves every 5 games. This is so your gloves clean and don’t smell. After washing them, let them air dry. DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE DRYER!
  • Have a pair of practice gloves and game gloves. This is so you don’t wreck your game gloves during practice.
