Lacrosse shoulder pads for little kids need to be flexible but also have good chest plates in them for protection. The ID Jr. pads are durable, flexible and have good coverage on the arms and shoulders. Parents also want to get players pads that won't ride up around the helmet when kids raise their arms. The bigger sized straps on these pads lock them down well and keep them where they belong. Great value from industry innovator Epoch lacrosse.
