Selecting a Field Hockey Stick (from USAFHA)

Selecting the right stick is eventually a matter of personal preference; there are some factors to consider when making your stick selection.
 
It should be well balanced and feel comfortable in your hands. Field hockey sticks range in weight from light (18 oz. to 19 oz.), to medium (19-22 oz), to heavy (22 oz to FIH maximum 25.9 oz [737 grams]). Most players will use a stick in the medium range.
 
Field hockey sticks range in length from 26 & 28-inch youth sticks to 38-inch sticks for taller and more experienced players. While the length of the stick is often determined by height, players often select the longest stick they can handle comfortably.

The chart below shows the general guideline for choosing the appropriate length stick.
