Each year we encourage players to consider wearing ankle braces for practices and games. We have found the ASO Ankle Brace to offer great protection for minimizing the severity of ankle injuries. The ASO Ankle Brace is better, and more convenient, than taping ankles because it stays tight where tape tends to loosen over time. We have also found MacMed to offer them at the best price.
