How do you measure a hockey stick?

The most common rule of thumb for sizing your stick is this: When standing in your skates, the end of a stick held with the toe of the blade on the floor should fall between your chin and nose. Players fond of short sticks will have the end of stick at throat height, while long sticks might hit you at the eyebrows.

In this regard, how do you measure hockey stick length? Sticks are measured in one of two ways: either from the top of the shaft to the blade when it’s on its toe and against a wall, or from the top of the shaft straight to the heel. Remember: if you’re measuring sticks in your street shoes, it’s going to feel about 3-4 inches shorter on the ice.

Also, how do you measure a kids hockey stick?

  1. Junior Hockey Sticks are available in sizes 24” up to full size 36.5”.
  2. To measure a child (5 Ft 2” or under) hold the hockey stick at their side and it should be at their hip or belly button.
  3. If you cannot decide between two lengths, you should consider your child’s position.
