Here are a few ways to help you choose your stick length:
To measure a child hold the hockey stick at their side. It should be just under their belly button.
If you can’t decide between two sizes, consider your child’s position. Defenders sometimes prefer a longer stick for a longer reach in tackling and better power when slapping. A shorter stick improves a stick handling skills so could be considered for more attacking players. Once a young person reaches the age of approximately 13 they will be in a full size stick ie 36.5”(5 f 3”), so you do not need to measure the stick to your hip or belly button once you reach this height.
The majority of hockey players use a 36.5” stick but many prefer the extra reach and power of a 37.5″ and some even prefer a 38.5″
Stick Length Height
30″ 4′ 1″ – 4′ 3″
32″ 4′ 4″ – 4′ 6″
34″ 4′ 7″ – 5′ 0″
35″ 5′ 1″ – 5′ 2″
36.5″ 5′ 3″ upwards
37.5″ 5′ 10″ upwards
NOTE: If you are 5’10” you don’t have to use a 37.5″ stick, it is a matter of personal choice and equally someone under 5’10” may prefer a slightly longer Hockey stick and opt for the 37.5″, in our experience the majority of Hockey players us a 36.5″
