JOCK STRAP OR CUP/JILL
Goalie equipment for optimal protection and comfort
You will want to make sure you get a goalie jock and not a player jock. Goalie jocks have extra protection and extra padding to protect you. For younger goalies, just a goalie jock should be fine, but for my older goalies (14 and up), I recommend that you wear a player cup under your goalie jock for two reasons.
The player cup will help to keep everything in the right places.
Here is one piece of equipment that you will not want to try to save money on, go for the best, and make sure it fits.
