What length of stick do I need?
Playing with the correct stick length is very important. It can be the difference between loving the sport and hating it. If you play with a stick that is too long or short then you are not going to be using the correct form when playing. Controlling/passing/striking the ball will be harder than it should be and mistakes will be made.
We know many parents who purchase sticks that are too long for their kids with the mindset 'they will grow into it'. While we understand the intentions of saving money, this is not advisable. If your kid is playing with a stick that is too long they are going to find it much harder to control/strike/pass the ball meaning they aren't going to enjoy the game which ultimately means you are wasting your money both on the equipment and their team fees.
We highly recommend you change sticks as your kid outgrows them.
