Hi, today we’re going to show how to hold
a stick properly. Before even holding the stick, you have to realize that there’s many
different kinds of sticks out there, but some of the more common kinds are a traditional
wooden stick, an aluminum shaft, this one happens to have a separate blade, so it’s
a two piece stick; and then the one I’m using right now is a one piece graphite stick. It’s
more of a personal preference, but with today’s technology, a lot of people have been using
the graphite one piece sticks. First thing you want to do is you want to make sure you
get the, the right level, the right length of the stick. So, most common is when you’re
on your skates, the top of the stick should be about at your chin. If you’re standing
on your feet, it should be at about your nose. And that’s, that’s how you pretty much get
an average length. Also, depending on what position you play, if you’re a forward, they
tend to have the stick length a little bit shorter, where as defensemen tend to have
their stick length a little bit longer, but like I said, it’s more of a personal preference.

    If you are a defenseman use the nose-chin rule, if your a forward you stick should be at your bottom lip when off skates and mid neck on skates and if you don't believe me look at NHL players with their sticks cause 95% of them use that length.
