Choosing appropriate hockey equipment is essential to prevent serious injuries. Field hockey goalies need to wear way more extra protective gear than any player. The kit includes a helmet with a cage to protect the face, leg pads, chest pad, and kicker covers on the shoes. The goalies also wear neck protectors and carry a stick throughout the match like other field hockey players. Moreover, the goalies need to drink sufficient water as the weight of the gears and heat and can cause dehydration.
