Girls playing ball don't take care of their knees!
Over My 32 years of coaching one thing I ask all my players to invest in is knee pads, but time and time again they don't listen due to a number of reasons but none of them are legit!
None of these are reasons not to invest in your safety and ability to play hard!!
Knee pads can be found in major sports stores and on line ranging in price from $11.00 to $80.00......personally the difference between them isn't great so the cheaper the better.
Nobody Cares what you look like on the court!
Safety is paramount when playing any sport especially a sport played on a hard surface and in full contact with your opponent.
Knee pads will allow you to hit the floor when diving for loose balls or get flung from an aggressive jump ball battles, and those knee on knee collisions that happen when you don't expect them to.
GET A PAIR PLAY HARDER THAN YOU EVER HAVE BEFORE!!!!!
Amazon has them as low as $9.99 right now!!! (long sleeved and compression are the same as the Mazuno)
Same ones that United Cycle carries for $70.00 online at Amazon they are $36.00
