PROPER STICK LENGTH IS CRITICAL FOR SKILL DEVELOPMENT

One of the most important development tools for any young player is to have a hockey stick that suits him/her. A long stick (at or above the chin on skates) can be detrimental to a child's development. A stick of proper length should lie with the blade flat on the ice when standing on skates, while holding the knob in the palm of the hand (for most, this is a stick cut shoulder height on skates). A stick of proper length will enable players to handle the puck close to their body, make back hand passes, develop more power in their shot and help them control the puck when moving laterally.



More importantly, proper stick length is required to develop proper skating mechanics. Players with sticks too long for them, straighten up to compensate and do not acquire the deep knee bend vital to improving stride length and frequency. Forward skating requires players to have a 45 degree upper body lean and obviously a long stick impedes this as well.

You can confirm the correct stick length by looking closely at the wear of the tape on the underside of the stick. If the tape is worn close to the tip, then you should probably consider a long stick. If the tape is used in place near the heel, then you probably should consider a shorter stick.

If you have questions regarding your players proper stick length speak with your child’s coach.
