I do mostly inside pack, and I've never ad a shin injury

Most of my more dramatic bruises were incurred as an outside pack ref, but inside isn't immune from them either. I still have a lump on my shin from when a skater cut in front of me to exit the penalty box almost a year ago. It happened in Harrisburg, where they have an infield penalty cage that not only isn't big enough to hold more than three skaters at a time, but is placed toward Turns 3/4, creating a blind spot for all involved.

Shin guards are an excellent idea if you can find ones that a) fit and b) don't interfere with your pads or skates. I have not yet achieved such a lofty goal.

That girl wore these
http://www.academy.com/index.php?page=content&target=products/sports/soccer/shinguards&start=0&selectedSKU=0446-01205-0065
but without the ankle sock. She's short but not that tiny. They fit her perfectly.
Hey look, a search function! Right up there! No on the left

Perhaps we should all spend a little more time reading and a little less time making shit up.

I believe you are talking about Fury.... If I remember correctly, she wears some pretty small knee pads, which would make it easier to prevent the shin guards from interfering.

Yeah, it's Fury. She wears Scabs- the same ones all the rest have.

mine are similar to these they're leighweight and do not interfere with my pads.. they even have little cushions for the ankles... I probably will base my decision on the temperature, since it can become pretty warm with those things on... I think I will definitely try them if I have to skate the outside some time.... thanks for your input!

Don't look at the game with rules-tinted glasses; look at the rules with game-tinted glasses!
