In the beautiful sport of hockey, your stick is the most valuable part of the equipment; without it, you can't play. When purchasing a hockey stick, the important thing is to know what height you need to play comfortably and effectively.
Keeping that in mind, we have come to you with a comprehensive hockey stick size guide. Our goal is to help you find the perfect stick size for you or anyone else in your hockey life. So, without any further ado, let us dive right in.
What Size of Hockey Stick Do I Need?
Hockey stick length can affect your game and control the ball and hitting capability. As a result, you need to find out the right hockey stick size for you. We would always use this as a guide for kids and players that are starting off their hockey journey.
There are so many different ways of measuring or finding out the size of a hockey stick. Some ask you to put the hockey stick in your armpit, some ask you to guess from the player’s height, and some think it’s dependent on the moon's position!
At Total-Hockey, we use the easiest and simplest method, the 'Belly Button' method. All you need for this to work is a measuring tape and the player that needs a new stick size.
To get the right length, this method requires you to use a measuring tape to measure from the middle of the belly button to the floor in inches. That is it, how simple was that!
Now That I Have the Size, What Next?
Now you have the distance between the belly button and the floor in inches; you have to equate that now to stick lengths. You can match the measures sized in the table below and find the adequate stick size for you.
|Hockey Stick Length||Distance Measured|
|View 22" Stick Range||22"||20" - 22"|
|View 24" Stick Range||24"||23" - 24"|
|View 26" Stick Range||26"||25" - 26"|
|View 28" Stick Range||28"||27" - 28"|
|View 30" Stick Range||30"||29" - 30"|
|View 32" Stick Range||32"||31" - 32"|
|View 34" Stick Range||34"||33" - 34"|
|View 35" Stick Range||35"||35" - 35.5"|
|View Adult Stick Range||36.5" or 37.5"||36" +|
The stick lengths of 36.5" and 37.5" are adult-length hockey sticks. If you fall in that category, we recommend choosing the length of a hockey stick on which size feels more comfortable to hold and play with.
We suggest coming into one of our stores to physically hold the adult hockey stick to see which size will feel the nicest. If you can't get to one of our stores, have a feel of one of your teammate’s hockey sticks to see which size is the most comfortable for you!
