Brought the oversized goalie gear into the hockey store. While we were still walking in they guy asked "that's not for HER is it?"
I explained our situation, and asked if he wanted to see her try the stuff on. "Uh, no. No need to. That's closer to fitting you than her." (which I didn't really need to hear, thank you very much!)
So the 27" pads are about, mmmm, 5" too big.
The only used stuff they had included 21" leg pads, which are a tiny bit small for her, but the chest protector, blocker & glove fit perfectly. Her pants are big enough that the guy said the half to 1" the leg pads are short will be fine at the mite/squirt level. He said I may want to get knee protectors if she complains. Best part- the organization agreed to pay for it all. It was only $200, but free is better than $200. Also got a Bauer stick for $90.
So she's got pads that fit relatively well and is psyched to play goalie. Pretty cool- they have synthetic ice in the goalie room so she put her skates on and tried some butterfly and such. She was actually able to get back up. With the 27" pads on I had to pick her up.
There was also a really nice bantam goalie getting new pads and he was giving her tips while they both waited for the one guy working to get their stuff.
