Shields are made of one-piece, injection-molded plastic, making them significantly stronger than other plastic items with seams. A textured face lets players better control the deflection of the ball as they block it. Two handles on the back let players hold the shield with both hands, or they can slide an arm through both for a secure grasp. Players can also adjust the Velcro® straps for the perfect fit. Shields are 23"L x 20"W.
