GOALKEEPER GLOVE and APPAREL SIZING CHARTS

Sizing Goalkeeper Gloves:   CLICK HERE FOR A GLOVE SIZING VIDEO

This is not an exact science since every goalkeeper's hand is different.  There are slight variations in size between manufacturers, between inexpensive practice gloves and more expensive game gloves, and Jr size numbers and adult sized numbers. Size 7 is a tough one since some manufacturers have a jr 7 and a senior 7.  

Note: Goalkeeping gloves should be worn slightly larger than hand size.  A keeper's finger should not be touching the tip of the glove nor should there be excessive room that makes the glove feel sloppy.  , Generally 1/4" to 1/2"  over the end of your fingertip is optimal or a thumbnail length if you dont have a ruler handy.

Here are some tips to guesstimate more efficiently. If you dont have a local soccer store to go try on a pair then here is are two common ways to determine the appropriate size.

Option 1:  Measure the circumference of the widest part of the palm
Measure the circumference of the widest part of the palm excluding the thumb. Round up to the next highest inch. Then add 1" to the measurement to determine your glove size.

Option 2: Measure the length of the hand from tip of the middle finger to the base of the large thumb area where the keeper's thumb meets the wrist.  Round up to the next highest inch. Then add 1" to the measurement to determine your glove size.

Example: 7 ¾" rounds up to 8", + 1" = 9", so a 7 ¾ around hand is a size 9 glove.

Note:

Be sure to measure both hands and order the bigger size.  When sizing a keeper's gloves, the fingers should be no less than a ¼ inch to an ideal ½ inch from the top of the glove.

Glove Size Measurements:

  • JR Size 4 or 5 - Small Keeper wearing YS goalkeeper gear.  Age is 7 to 9 years old.  Height maybe 4 feet 6 inches to 4 feet 8 inches for a size 5.

For goalkeeper jersey measurements: 

For best fit, measure shirt that fits you well. With arms relaxed at your sides, measure around your chest at the armpits, over the widest part of your chest and shoulder blades, keeping the tape parallel to the floor. Compare with measurement listed in size chart.

MCDAVID:  Suppose to be tight but not restricting.  For shorts I have found that the apparel runs true based on their suggestions.  Tops are not as easy since some of us are stocky, skinny, broad shouldered etc.  I am 5'11" and 180 and I wear an AL top and AM bottom.  The AM top fits a little snug for my liking but it is suppose to be.
