As per Sticks & Skates catalog……..
Skate sizes will be different from shoe size. Normal sizing for skates is typically 1-1.5 sizes smaller than your shoe size. While wearing the sock that will be worn when skating, slip your foot into the skate and gently let your toes touch the front of the skate. For a proper fit you should be able to place one finger between the inside of the boot and your heel. Walk 10-15 minutes in the skates checking for comfort.
The glove should offer freedom of movement in all positions. The tightness or looseness of a glove is an individual preference. For a proper fit you should have about _" from the tip of your finger to the tip of the glove. Make sure that the gap between the glove and the elbow pad is minimal.
Measure the player’s chest just below the armpits. Match the player’s chest measurement to the shoulder pad size in inches. Shoulder pads should fit snugly with the tips of the shoulders properly positioned under the shoulder caps.
Men’s Sizes: Small 32"-36", Medium 36"-40", Large 40"-44", X-Large 40"-44"
Junior Sizes: Small 20"-28", Medium 24"-28", Large 28"-32"
Measure from the center of the kneecap to the top of the skate. The cap of the shin guard should be centered on the kneecap. The shin pad should extend down the full length of the lower leg. It’s important to make sure the shin pad isn’t too long. If so, the skate will push it up and the pad will be out of position.
For proper fit, place a tape measure 1" above the eyebrows and measure the distance around the head. Use that measurement as you look at helmets. Generally, they are sized as Small – Large, but the measurements usually accompany those sizes. Here is an approximate relation; Small 20"-22.5", Medium 21"-24", and Large 22.5"- 25". To properly adjust the helmet, open to it’s largest setting and place on the player’s head so the rim is approximately _" above the eyebrow. Gradually begin to downsize the helmet until a comfortable snug fit is achieved.
The players elbow should fit comfortably into the center of the elbow pad cup. A good elbow pad will provide forearm protection which extends down to the cuff of the glove.
Measure the player’s waist and match with the measurements below. Pants should reach the top of the knee and extend up to cover the kidney and lower ribs. All padding should cover critical areas and allow for free movement.
