What do you want from your volleyball knee pads? 

With such a wide variety of volleyball kneepads available, it's tough to know where to begin when selecting the right pair for yourself or your team. 

Basically kneepads fall into one of three categories based on the

  • amount of skin coverage you think you need, 
  • the amount of cushioning you prefer to have and 
  • your level of play:


Volleyball Knee Pads:
Full Coverage


FULL Coverage:

Perfect for beginners or youth volleyball players who may not yet have the same experience and control as more seasoned players. 

These kneepads provide the maximum amount of padding and protection for the entire knee.


Volleyball Knee Pads: Moderate Coverage


MODERATE Coverage:

Designed to provide comfortable protection with a lower profile, moderate coverage kneepads are ideal for your typical high school volleyball player who is looking for a less bulky alternative.


Volleyball Knee Pads: Minimal Coverage


MINIMAL Coverage: 

Made for the elite volleyball player, these kneepads have the perfect balance of cushioning and movability with the lowest profile and coverage area available.


Volleyball Knee pads: 
Functionality


It seems like everything including volleyball knee pads have been developed to become technologically functional and to include  elements that will supposedly help you play better.

Until I see the knee pad that actually does a spike approach and hits the ball over the net I'm just going to settle for the pair of pads that 

  • gives me adequate coverage of my knee cap and surrounding areas 
  • that absorbs moisture and sweat and 
  • cushions and covers my sensitive (and bony!) knee joint areas when I have to do a dive or sprawl for a ball
