The stick should be well balanced and should feel good in YOUR hands. The weight in the head should still allow you to have maximum stick speed when maneuvering and hitting the ball. Most sticks are available in medium weight which varies between 19 and 21 ounces.
Use the longest stick you can handle comfortably, since the ball is played further away from the body. While the length of the stick is somewhat determined by your height, the more mature player will want to play with a longer stick. A guide for the younger or less experienced player:
|Athlete's Height||Stick Length|
|Up to 5 ft||34" stick|
|5'1" to 5'3"||35" stick|
|5'4" to 5'7"||36" stick|
|5'8" and over||37" stick|
