Ideally, the top of the shin guard should come to 2 cm below your kneecap. Your shin guard should fit snugly around your calf without being too tight.

Safety tips

Hockey should be fun. Don't neglect your safety. Always wear your mouthguard, shin guards and a glove. Use hockey shoes with protective reinforcement and soles designed for your playing surface.Wear a mask and specially designed gloves. During matches and training.

Protecting your legs

A shin guard is a piece of personal protection equipment. It should meet current regulations, including the PPE regulation (EU) 2016/425.
Use a shin guard that was specifically designed for field hockey. A field hockey shin guard has two features specific to the sport: it covers the ankles and comes up to just beneath the kneecap, and provides wide coverage around the legs.

Protecting your legs(cont.)

Football shin pads are not suitable for field hockey.
A field hockey shin pad features a moulded plastic plate that is generally lined with foam to absorb impacts.
Replace your shin guard according to the manufacturer's indications or as soon as it begins to show signs of wear. Refer to the product user guide in case of questions.
