      WASHING YOUR GLOVES--

      1. Immerse Gloves Completely with Warm Water (never hot)
      2. Put Quarter Size Amount of Glove Wash on Each Palm
      3. Work it in on the palm thoroughly, rinsing occasionally 
      4. Repeat if Neccessary

          WHY USE GLOVE WASH?

          • Most Soaps contain Moisturizers which can harm gloves, West Coast Glove Soap is designed specifically for Gloves
          • Sweat & Dirt Break down your gloves, without cleaning them they won't last as long
          • Washing your gloves restores the grip, bringing back the grip
          • Washing your gloves softens them and makes them more comfortable
          • Dude the Smell... No one wants funky Gloves!

           

          GLOVE WEAR

          • West Coast Goalkeeping uses 100% 4mm German Pro Match Latex for all Gloves.  Any Latex, even Pro is a naturally soft material and will show natural wear from use.  
          • Latex can show signs of wear from the very first use.... relax, its normal - the latex is sticky from the top to the bottom, it will continue to be usable until you have worn all latex off the palm. 
          • Latex is DESIGNED to wear, if it didn't show wear, then the palms are too 'dense or hard' and it would not be ideal for catching!  West Coast is not liable for wear and tear on a glove, as it is intended for this. 
          • Contributing factors to increased wear can include: Technique (make a fist to get up off the ground), Playing Surface (Turf is much harder on gloves), Weather (summer months can be brutal), Care (Wash gloves regularly to increase life), were they dampened regularly and most importantly how often you play and train.
          • Caring for your gloves and protecting the palms will greatly increase life, but sometimes unlucky Cuts, Dings, Knicks can be picked up from the turf or ground and are just a part of the game.  The latex is still sticky and still usable.
          • Negative Cut gloves will often wear faster due to the exposed finger design of the glove and their more snug nature compared to other cuts.
          • How many pairs per season?  The average Select/Premier keeper will usually go through 2-5 pairs per Year, while a Pro will go through 20-50, it all comes down to how often and what level you play along with how you treat the gloves.  
          • It is smart to have a Game pair and Practice pair - to be able to rotate, it will lessen the strain on a single pair and also provide backup in emergency.

            Size Guide

            GLOVE SIZE GUIDELINES:
            • Goalkeeping Gloves should be worn slightly larger than hands
            • Fingers SHOULD NOT be touching the tip of the gloves
            • Removing Finger Protection will make a glove 1/2 size larger.
            • Reverse/Negative glove cuts are a snugger fit, so it's often best to go a size up if on the border.
            • If you have a larger frame/build, your palm may be larger, requiring a larger glove. Just email us, we are here to help!
            • Contact@WestCoastGoalkeeping.com is great for any questions

            HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HANDS:

            • Option 1 : Measure the circumference of the widest part of the palm measure the circumference of the widest part of the palm including the thumb. Round up to the next highest inch. Then add 1" to the measurement to the determine your glove size.
            • Option 2 : Measure the length of the hand from tip of the middle finger to the base of the large thumb area where the keeper's thumb meets the wrist. Round up to the next highest inch. Then add 1" to the measurement to determine your glove size.
            • Example : 7.5" rounds up to 8", + 1" = 9", so a 7 3/4 around hand is a size 9 glove. Don't forget to add 1"!

              Favorite so far!

              I was pleasantly surprised by the grips on the inside of the gloves. I really like the wrist wraps and the overall quality of the gloves...will be buying again.

              Great gloves. My daughter Nahla loves them!

              Excellent pair of gloves (snug fit/better feel for smaller hands)

              Excellent gloves for an 8 year old boy (size 4). The negative cut fits a little closer which gives him better feel/grip with smaller hands. The trade off is that this cut wears out faster (also stated in the product description). We can see some pitting in the thumb early on, but that's to be expected. Still, the latex on West Coast gloves is higher quality than most other brands, especially compared to other brands' offerings in smaller sizes.

              Great fit, support and comfort. My goalkeepers like the durability of the palms as well. Recommend highly!
