Goalie Stick Sizing Chart

How To Fit a Goalie Stick

Your goal stick's main job is to block the five hole while IN A BUTTERFLY position. Make sure your stick is short enough to accommodate this. Most goalies make the mistake of sizing their stick by going to a store and holding it in their standing stance only. This often leads to choosing a stick that is too tall.
