I am going to be showing you the grip today
of how to hold a hockey stick properly. If you’re a righty like myself, you’re going
to hold your left hand at the top of this stick. For the most part when you’re playing,
you’re going to keep this hand in this position for the most of the time. Your other hand
however is going to be doing the most moving. General stick handling position, it’s going
to be about a elbows length down the shaft. But when you’re shooting a puck, you’re going
to usually slide it down towards the middle to get better leverage on the shot. But if
you’re stick handling, it’s going to be about down to here. So you can have better control.
Also, if you want to, I am going to show you how to hold a goalie stick properly. You’re
going to wrap your hand around the smaller part, the bottom of the smaller part of the
stick. Wrapping all your fingers but your index finger is going to stay out pointing
outwards.
And also, the goalie for the most part only has one hand on the stick but once in a while,
the goalie will use two hands similar to a shooter to play the puck. So the glove hand
is the right hand is going to stay up here if you’re a righty and the left hand is going
to, similar to the, for the shooter, it’s going to be about middle way down the shaft
of the blade to play the puck. And that’s the basic grip on how to hold the stick properly,
properly.

    I'm left-handed and I use a right handed stick – it feels weird and unstable to use my left hand on the middle of the stick. Rule of thumb is dominant hand on top, however, overall it's down to personal choice.

    If you are right-handed and have your dominant hand on top, you are most likely a left-handed hockey player. If you are left-handed and have your dominant hand on top, you are a right-handed hockey player. However, if you are right handed and have your dominant hand in the middle, you are a right handed player and visa versa for left-handed people. All personal choice and what makes you comfortable holding a stick. They say dominant hand on top is better for stability when it comes to hooking etc.
