What should I look for when purchasing a stick?
Our recommendation for the size of the field hockey stick is approximately 1 1/2in below your child's hip bone. Most sticks come in 1/2in sizes. Composite sticks are preferable, as they give the child more power and control.
In the event that your child is not with you when purchasing a stick, please use the following as a guide when choosing the stick size for your child.
