here you find information about the following topics:

1.) Infos about stick length
2.) Infos about stick bow
3.) Infos about stick hook
4.) composite stick or wooden stick?
5.) size classification shoes
6.) size classification textiles
7.) printing of textiles



1.) stick length:

Generally the stick should reach the height of the naval or 2 finger widths above).

Junior sticks (Rule of thumb):
The length (L) of the stick is measured in inches. The height (H) should be the height of the naval in cm multiplied by 0,39 (L = H x 0,39)

Junior stick (alternative rule of thumb)
Body height (G) of the child in cm divided by 4. (L = G / 4)

Junior stick 36”
The stick length 36” is approximately 1,3 cm shorter than the standard length for the seniors. A child out grows the stick relatively fast. Essentially purchasing an adult stick is smarter.

Senior stick
The stick length is measured in inches. 1 Inch = 1” = 2,54 cm.
The senior standard length is 36,5”. The longer ones (37,5” / 38,0” / 40,0”) are exceptions and not always available.

Approximate guides for the stick length for kids depending on the body height:

2.) the bow of a stick:

little: <18 mm
normal: approximately 18 – 25 mm
A standard bow makes the finer techniques of ball control, dribbling and drag flicking a lot easier.  In particular, flicking, which is particularly important in Indoor Hockey, as well as on Short Corners is enhanced with a Normal bow. A good, hard, flat pass is also made easier with a normal bow. With a larger bow, the player can generate more of a ‘sling-shot’ movement, and therefore more power.  However the maximum bow that is now legally allowed is 25mm.

An extreme bow is recommended for drag flickers.  Drag flicking is a specialist skill, and players need to be taught how to use the full length of the bow to reach their full potential as a short corner specialist.



3.) the hook of a stick:

Midi: short hook (kids/beginners)
Maxi: a slightly shorter hook than normal
Hook: normal hook
Hook-maxi: a slightly longer hook than normal



4.) composite or wooden stick?

Advantages of the composite stick:
-    Harder pass due to a harder stick
-    Usually lighter and therefore more maneuverable
-    More durability because it is more resistant to water and astro turf

Advantages of the wooden stick:
-    Better touch, because wood gives a better response and therefore better feel for where the ball is on the stick without having to look at it
-    Cheaper

The composite sticks of all brands are made of hightech materials such as carbon, kevlar, fibreglass or aramid.  These materials are fused together with resin. The percentages of materials refer to how what percent of each material is used in the stick. Carbon is the hardest material, although it is stiff and brittle. Therefore, and due to its lightness, carbon is usually combined with flexible Kevlar fibres, which gives the stick more flex. The more inexpensive models usually use cheaper fibres such as aramid, which also reduces the stiffness of the stick.
Generally, the more expensive sticks have a higher the percentage of carbon or kevlar, means a harder and more durable stick. This results in a higher hitting potential (the harder the stick, the harder the pass). However, this stick simply transfers the power from body to ball, so you’ll, so how hard you can hit will be relative to an individual’s power. A 10-year-old child can’t reach the full potential of a 200 EUR stick, because he or she is not strong enough yet. Other important factors are how much practice the player has, how strong the player is and how much they will use the backhand. Those are things that are important when considering a stick.
The wooden sticks are made out of wood and depending on the price there are materials such as carbon, kevlar and fibreglass added for reinforcement and to stiffen the stick..  Here the same rules apply as the ones for the composite stick.
