Vaughn Ventus SLR Junior Trapper

The Vaughn Ventus SLR junior trapper is game-ready off the shelf due to an anatomical structure and baseball glove like feel. The cuff has been shrunk in size slightly, to increase the catching area in the rest of the glove. The single-T has also been modified, making it thinner for an easier closure. The backhand has been modernized with segmented high-density foam to ease closure, a wide cuff for better chest/arm integration and a fingertip deflector rail for added protection during goalmouth scrambles. Internally, the Ventus SLR Pro features adjustable straps, a neoprene sleeve for heat/moisture management, and thumb tunnel for total control.

Sizing Information

Goalie Catch Gloves Sizing

More times than not, trappers are often overlooked compared to other pieces of gear where fit is concerned. Perhaps this is a result of the limited sizes available compared to other pieces of equipment: youth, junior, intermediate and senior. The first step to finding the correct trapper is to approximate your size by following the estimated age range and “heel-of-palm-to-tip-of-middle-finger” measurement:

  • Youth (age 5 – 8): 4.5” – 5.75” / 119 – 143 mm
  • Junior (age 8 – 11): 6.35” – 5.75” / 144 – 160 mm
  • Intermediate (age 11 – 13): 6.35” – 7” / 161 – 178 mm
  • Senior (age 14 and up): 7” – 8.5”* / 179 – 216 mm
  • *8” – 8.5” would constitute an XL palm on a senior trapper

Once a size has been estimated it is important to ensure that the palm lines up properly within the catching glove so that it can be closed without excessive force. Obviously new gloves will be difficult to close initially, but through either using it repeatedly or baking it with our in-house convection skate ovens they will soften up and allow the goaltender to easily close. We do not recommend using any conventional in-home ovens, as the results have been very unpredictable in the past.


After you’ve checked the palm, the second thing to look for is that the wrist strap goes directly across your wrist bone and has little to no interference with the chest/arm. The catch glove should be able to twist and maneuver in a multitude of save selections in addition to being able to grip the stick when puck handling, all the while keeping the hand in the correct position within the trapper.


For growing goaltenders, it is still best to stick within these guidelines rather than moving up to the next size to accommodate growth. Large gloves are going to inhibit the goalie’s control and inhibit development. It should be noted that as a result of the limited size selection, goalies wouldn’t jump sizes as quickly as other pieces of gear.
