Frequently Asked Questions about our Ball Hockey Equipment
This is your essential resource for solving any doubts or questions you might have regarding the selection, usage, and care of protective gear for your ball hockey games.
Using our size chart, take accurate measurements of your body and match them to the corresponding gear sizes. A well-fitted piece of protective gear should snugly cover the body part it's meant to protect without restricting movement.
Not at all. The key is to wear the right gear, properly fitted. High-quality protective gear is designed to maximize both safety and mobility, meaning it should not hinder your performance on the court. In fact, knowing you're well protected can boost your confidence and potentially enhance your performance.
Ensuring safety while playing ball hockey is crucial. Two fundamental pieces of protective gear every ball hockey player should always consider are gloves and shin guards. Our AK5 gloves model provides essential hand and wrist protection from impacts and potential injuries. Our AK7 Shin guards, on the other hand, will safeguard your knees and shins against the forceful contact of a ball or stick during gameplay.
The recommended level of protection for ball hockey players largely depends on the individual player's preferences and the rules set out by their league or club. Players should consider their playing position, the intensity of their gameplay, and their history of injuries when deciding on the level of protection.
Proper maintenance of your ball hockey protection gear is important to ensure its longevity and effectiveness. Some protective gear, like our AK5 protective shorts, can be machine washed and dried, making them easy to maintain. Other pieces might require hand washing or air drying.
Common injuries in ball hockey often include finger and kneecap injuries. Wearing appropriate protection gear such as gloves and shinguards can help significantly reduce the risk of these injuries.
