gill has a line of junior gear (including gloves) and a handy sizing chart:
Gill Junior sailing gear, Youth wetsuits - children's boating clothing, youth wet suits
be sure to check the clearance section too

Yeah, I had to figure out the location thing... It turns out there are 2 different places to enter it, only one of which is visible to others. Makes sense.
As I said before, West Marine has nothing for kids. I'll probably contact Gill and/or Ronstan to see if they have size charts for the junior stuff. Thanks.

Your location wasn't visible when I asked...
Jetskiing gloves might work, and are often available in smaller sizes. I personally use the JetPilot brand as my sailing gloves and work gloves around the house. They're tough.

Just a thought, ATV/offroad gloves are pretty similar I think, and might be easier to get. I know around here, there are 10-15 motorcycle/atv stores for our 1 boat store.
