The most quickly forgotten position when talking about handball, but certainly one of the most important positions on the handball field. They have to be there to keep the balls. During these smart and spectacular saves of the handball goalie, balls are quite often thrown against the body resulting in bruises.
The goalkeeper protection
The protection that can be valuable for goalkeepers is in shorts and shirts. The shorts are short tights with pads in different areas. The tights can have pads on the hips, but also on the sides and front of the thighs. These pads not only provide protection when balls hit the body, but can certainly provide relief when the goalie goes to the ground in a hurdle session and falls on the hip. The jerseys have pads on the shoulders and elbows to give more protection to the goalkeeper. A hard ball on the shoulder can be very painful, the shoulder pads reduce the chance of bruising and you as the goalkeeper can immediately throw that fast break to your teammate. We have also thought about the male handball goalie, the goalkeeper's sock offers the right protection.
