One of the most important things about West Coast Goalkeeping gloves is that we use Professional Goalkeepers to help us test and design our gloves.
It is crucial for West Coast to have keepers at every level of Professional Soccer both men and women and in every corner of the world as part of our Pro-Team. (We are very specific in who and what we look for in a Pro-Team keeper!) They will wear the gloves in the toughest conditions and in all different sorts of weather. They will wear them far more than the average keeper, they will try to break them and in the end - we compile all of their feedback and use it in our development process. Right now we are developing gloves for next season, with the feedback the West Coast Pro-Team gives us!
We wanted to make sure we had the rains of England and Scotland, the mud of Ireland, the Turf so many in the US play on, and the arid conditions we see so many keepers playing on represented. With that we are glad to announce our newest Pro-Team member, Jordan Jennings.
Jordan is an American Pro Goalkeeper, currently playing in Australia for Sydney United 58 FC, in the IGA National Premier NSW Division. In fact he is the only American Pro Goalkeeper currently playing in Australia!
Jordan will be able to provide feedback on new conditions in Australia, new pitches and surfaces and be able to bring the West Coast glove to a whole new audience (and continent)!

Every day at West Coast we get questions about whether or not a keeper should use finger saves. This post hopes to help you make a choice, show what some our pros do and explain why every pair of West Coast Gloves comes with removable finger saves.
One of the most common emails we get is concerns wear on the bottom of a palm.
A simple way to make your palms last is to make a fist when Pushing Up from the Turf.
