Abstract

A soccer goalkeeper’s gloves are arguably their most important piece of equipment. The purpose of this project is to test three different types of goalkeeper gloves and determine which glove produces a greater amount of friction. The study consisted of two parts, which were: testing the gloves using a force platform, and testing the gloves on goalkeeper subjects. In conclusion, our results showed us that the gloves with latex palms produced the most friction. This information could be referenced when purchasing goalkeeper gloves.
