Bauer S20 GSX Prodigy Youth Goalie Leg Pads
Lightweight foam protects against impacts and an adjustable thigh protector provides additional coverage. A deep leg channel and adjustable knee lock keep the pad in place. Additionally, a calf wrap and toe strap create a comfortable, secure fit. You can also change the color of the white stock product in store with a simple graphic kit.
New for 2020 are the re-designed Prodigy youth goalie leg pads. In the past, the Prodigy youth goalie leg pads were basically a piece of foam with a channel cut out for the legs. Unfortunately we found this did not play well and when a goalie moved into a junior leg pad, they had a hard time adjusting to a real style pad. The new S20 Prodigy leg pads are built like its bigger counterparts which gives the young goalie the feel of a real goalie pad to learn with. As the goalie moves up in sizes, we feel this will make the transition much easier compared to the previous generation Prodigy’s.

Sizing Differences: Youth, Junior & Intermediate
Many parents do not understand the sizing terms used in goalie equipment. Youth, junior and intermediate are often confused as too which term goes with which age group. We will explain the differences to help eliminate any errors in the ordering process. Youth goalie gear is the smallest on the market. This is generally for your five year to eight year old goalies. Youth gear is generally less expensive and not made with high quality materials. Higher quality materials and foams at a youth level pose two issues. One; they are too stiff for a small goalie to move around and two; the goalie will outgrow the gear before they even break it in. Therefore it is ok to have lesser quality at the youth goalie gear age group. The junior goalie equipment is for the eight year to the twelve year old goalie. This again is not made with the highest quality materials. The quality is certainly better then the youth gaolie gear however the need for flexibility and movement outweighs the need for high end materials that will last several years. In the junior level gear, specs are more defined and equipment is made with performance in mind. Generally junior goalie equipment will have a lot of performance features that will be found in higher level gear. Lastly is the intermediate level goalie equipment. Intermediate gear is generally for eleven to fourteen year old goalies or even smaller adults. This gear generally uses higher density foams and higher quality materials. Goalies in this age group put a lot of wear and tear on their gear so manufactures need to build it accordingly. Everything about intermediate gear is made with higher level performance features and extra protection features. Players at this age group are playing faster and shooting harder therefore the goalie gear needs to be better as well.
