European and US method of sizing up a Hockey Stick for a child
- Place the wooden curve on the ground
- Make sure the stick is straight
- Hold the stick at the top of the handle keeping it in place
- Stand as straight as a soldier
- The top of the stick should stretch above the hip bone. It may be slightly higher, or lower.
Many experts suggest a little higher is better, as it offers the child a little more growth without losing close ball control. You can ask another person to help or use a mirror to see if the stick is close enough to the top of the hip.
