Goalies. I need your advise
So, many of you know my kid started playing goalie recently. He just made a summer team, 6 years old and made the squirt team. :)
To the real reason I am asking for advise. I have researched masks pleanty now but not until today did he go try one on. They only had junior masks at the place he went to and it fit snug on his head but the chin cup was a little low. Do I get a junior mask and add a bit of padding inside it at the chin cup area or try and find a youth mask and see if it's a better fit for now and get a junior mask next year.
Also, I know the construction on the junior masks are better built for safety than the youth masks so that's a big dilema for me. Along with the fact that junior sized ones put you in a better selection of masks decor.
Youth 6 - 6 5/8
Junior 6 1/2 - 7 1/8
not much of a difference and even some overlap but we are talking about my kids noggin here.
