How do you know what size lacrosse gloves to get?
Use a tape measure to measure the distance from where your elbow pads will end to the tip of your fingers. This number equals your glove size.
How do you pick lacrosse gloves?
Your fingertips should just touch the end of the glove but still be underneath the padding. If there is a large gap between your fingertip and the end of the glove, the glove is too big. The glove is also considered to be too small if the bottom of the players palm is not covered by the palm material.
How do you know your gloves size?
To ascertain your glove size:
- Pass a tape measure around the widest part of your hand – usually over your knuckles, excluding the thumb.
- The result, in inches, is your glove size – e.g. if your hand measures 7 inches, you are a glove size 7.
- If you are between two sizes, round down to the lower of the two.
