If you have to ask, then it is best to visit a specialist shop and talk to them while buying. Otherwise, these are rough guides: You should get a stick that comes up to between your waist and your bellybutton - this will vary depending on how tall you are and how long your legs are. If you can't get the right size, it is better to have a slightly shorter stick than you need, rather than a longer one; longer sticks make you learn how to play incorrectly. Most advice is that the cut stick should reach your chin or nose, while wearing skates.

If i am 61 how tall of a hockey stick should i have?

A hockey stick should be measured and chosen when you have your skates on, or unless you have good judgment because a hockey stick should be no lower than your nose level( with your skates on). And its how ever you feel comfortable with your stick your the one who's gonna play with it. Its good to have the stick a little bit long so you have a nice long reach for the puck while not getting to close to the player with the puck -but- then again not too long.(:
