Gloves vary greatly in quality. You need quality gloves. You will get hit in the hands and you need to protect your hands.
All of our players should be wearing red gloves. At the high school level it is required that all players have the same color gloves.

Protection for your upper body and your arms is very important. Make sure that your pads fit properly. The color of your shoulder pads is not important.
Pads that are too big or too small could cause you to be injured.
Find a place where you can try on gear before you buy. Height is a general guide to pad size but because body types vary so greatly it is best to try gear on first. Because you need to try shoulder pads on there is no size chart posted here.
Arm pads/guards are universal until you get to high school. In high school the type of pads you use will change depending on position.
Ask your coach for recommendations. Defensemen and Attack will usually wear completely different arm protection.
