Goalkeeper Sizing Chart

Goalkeeper Sizing Chart

How To Size Goalkeeper Glove:

Best way to determine goalie glove sizing is to measure the length of the goalkeeper's hand from tip of the middle finger to the end of the palm. General rule is to round up and add a size. Hand measurement of 7 inches would be a size 8.  My hand measures 7.5 inches.  7.5 inches + .5 to round up + 1 = a size 9.  Sizing youth goalie gloves is far more difficult.  Determining the best glove cut is based on preference and body type.  

Goalkeeper Glove Sizing Guide: 

This is not an exact science since every goalkeeper's hand is different.  

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.

Another option is to 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.

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.

Youth Goalie Glove Sizing Help:

There are slight variations in size between manufacturers; between inexpensive practice gloves and more expensive game gloves; gloves with youth sizes only; and adult size ranges with youth size that span from size 5 - 11.  A youth size 7 and an adult size 7 are very different sizes.  To make matters more difficult a size 6 in Elite Sport will fit more like a Reusch junior size 7.  The glove experts at Keeperstop are here to help with a video to help size youth goalie gloves.

Goalkeeper Jersey Sizing and General Measurements:
