FLOORBALL - stick length




_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________


• sticks Length is the most important parameter especially for children
• too long stick hinders in the technique and protection of the ball, impairs player´s shooting and primarily unequally burdens player´s back; there is an injury risk
• too short stick reduces the player´s range

• THE CORRECT STICK LENGTH IS TO THE PLAYER´S NAVEL - MAXIMUM 4 CM ABOVE

• we can make your stick shorter for FREE (shortening of the sticks HERE)
• by shortening we are recommending to cut off maximal to 8 cm
(if this part was larger, parameters of the stick would change strongly – the stick will be tougher – “it will curve worse”)
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

• tables for a good choice of the stick length are only indicative
• by choice it is necessary to evaluate not only body height but also its abilities
• for the beginner there is more suitable shorter stick that makes possible better control of the stick and so better learning of the technique
• but stick must not be too short to does not shorten the range to a player and he does not arch needlessly above the stick
