Junior Shoulder Pads are built to protect the player from injuries and heavy impacts. Next to that they are meant to keep the player flexible with enough range of motion as they throw or catch a ball. Junior Shoulder Pads are made for the players who are between the ages of 12 and 15, or are to small to wear an Adult Shoulder pad.
The Junior Shoulder Pads are nearly all suited for All-Purpose positioning. Because junior players are often placed on different positions every training and game. In contradiction to that, The Riddell Power JPK+ is also build for Skilled Positions like QB and WR as well as for All Purpose Positions. The padding from these Youth Shoulder Pads are similar to the Adult Riddell SPK+.
