Hockey Stick Size Guide...
For many years the standard length of an international stick was 36”. Today the normal length for international sticks has increased to 36.5”. There is also a recent trend for even longer sticks, up to 38”, to be used.
Selecting the right length of stick is vitally important if all the skills of hockey are to be developed and performed well. In general, your height determines what length of stick you should use. However there are some benefits in selecting the longest stick that you can control. The more skillful player may want the benefits of extra reach and better vision that longer sticks can offer.
A lot of children play with sticks that are far too long, one of the main reasons is that it looks "cool" to play with a senior stick. However playing with the wrong size of stick will negatively affect the hitting performance due to the length and mass of the head not being in balance. One should look for a Junior stick which has a "full size" (senior) head.
|The main points are:|
|Does the stick feel comfortable?|
|Is it pressing into my tummy or am I having to bend too low and damage my back?|
|Can my hands control the head of the stick when I swing to hit the ball or is the head of the stick dominating my hands?|
As a rough guide, we would recommend the following:
|Player Height||Stick Length|
|Below 4 ft||30 inch|
|4ft - 4ft 7in||32 inch|
|4ft '7in - 5ft||34 inch|
|5ft - 5ft 4in||36 inch|
|5ft 4in - 6ft 2in||36.5 inch|
|6ft 2in - 6ft 5in||37.5 inch|
|Above 6ft 5in||38 inch|
