How to size a hockey stick:
- Go to your local specialty sports store or trusted super store and locate the hockey section.
- Put on your ice hockey skates and lace them up.
- Next grab an ice hockey stick and place the toe of the stick on the ground in front of you (the toe is the very end of the ice hockey stick blade).
- With the toe on the ground, the handle should be facing towards you.
- Place the handle knob of the ice hockey stick close to your face.
- The handle knob should be somewhere between your chin and tip of your nose.
