How big should a hockey stick be?

Field Hockey

Most adult players use a 36.5 inch (93 cm) hockey stick but this all depends on the height of the player and the player's personal preference. The general rule is the stick, with the hook on the ground and the stick parallel to your body, should come up to the level of your navel, and you should feel comfortable using it (not too short/long/heavy). Junior players use shorter sticks (down to 28 in/71cm), while taller adult players over 5ft 11in/180cm use a 37.5 inch (95cm) stick or even a 38.5in (98cm) stick.

The stick must also be able to fit through a ring 51mm (2in) in diameter, and when placed on the ground flat side down, the bow in the stick must be 25mm (1in) or less.

Ice HockeyIt can be whatever size you want it to be. However, it is recommended that the stick be about as tall as your nose without skates.

What kinds of injuries can occur from playing hockey and are there health issues should you be aware of?

In all forms of hockey, you are dealing with a large number of people using hard sticks to hit solid objects at a high speed, with the large likelihood of players running into each other. One of the major hockey injuries is the concussion, received from hits to the head by a checking opponent, hitting their heads on the playing surface, on boards, or on the ice.

While hockey is somewhat safe in that all players are required to wear a fair amount of protective equipment, it can still result in bruising in a variety of sizes and locations. Players also get cuts, abrasions, broken bones, damaged fingers, and lost teeth. The most serious, however, are concussions, and spinal injuries to the neck and back.

When boiling the blade of a stick for reshaping how long should it be in the water?

Until it is flexible enough for reshaping, it is also a bad idea to do this yourself, you should go to a professional.I have never put a stick in boiling water to curve it before. The way I used to do it was to either hold the blade of the stick over the burner on the stove or heat it up with a blow torch. After it is good and hot curve it however you want it. Just don't get caught with too big of a curve or you might end up in the box for 2 minutes.

Boiling a stick will not do much, you need direct heat, on the blade, usually with a propane blow trorch. I simply look for a stick with as much curve as I like and buy it.

Having "too much curve" makes it harder to receive a pass, or to shoot a backhand shot. The puck will just dribble off the end of the blade.

All good points. However they only apply to a wooden blade. You cannot reshape a carbon fiber blade without significantly weakening it or completely ruining it. As said, there are a lot of different curve patterns to choose from these days, so I suggest trying out a few of your buddies' sticks to see what pattern you like, and simply buy it.

correction..........u can curve a full fibre glass hockey stick....i have alot of them and ive dun it before and it makes a sweet curve.....so dont listen to whoever wrote that bull

Why is a hockey puck called a puck?

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word "puck" is derived from the Scottish Gaelic "puc" or the Irish "poc" which mean to poke, punch or deliver a blow.These words were used in the game of hurling. Scottish and Irish settlers to Canada played hurling and probably used these terms in connection with the game. According to some accounts, early hockey was essentially "hurling on ice", so the name was probably used for the object, "the puck" as used in early hockey. The OED gives the earliest written use of the word in 1891, in Canada, by which time hockey was well-established.

An old Canadian word for informal hockey is "shinny" which comes from Scottish "shinty", the Scottish form of hurling.

Are Graf skates better than Reebox and CCM skates?

they are better for defensive players because they are harder for blocking shots. They are also wider then both reebok and ccm which are considered wide but if you are looking for speed reebok is better but ccm has the most speed associated skates

-------------------------------

Graf skates are better because they allow for more customizable fitting options. Each model number in the Graf 700 and G series boots represents a different foot type. For example, the 703 model (or the higher end G3) fits a narrow heel and narrow ball of the foot, the 705 (G5) fits a standard width ball and heel, and the 735 (G35) model fits a regular width ball of the foot and a narrow heel.

Graf also uses materials throughout the boot that allow for easy fitting customization and comfort adjustments through heating and/or stretching.

Reebok and CCM skates are all made with the same generic foot mold, and, depending on the model, allow for little customization, if any.

The one issue most players have with Graf skates is the angle (or pitch) of the runners. The ideal skating position is to have your knees bent with a very low center of gravity. The Graf Cobra 3000 or 5000 holders (standard on the 700 or G series boots) are designed to force you get into this position. Other brands don't do this to the same extent, if at all, making any conversion to Graf skates a challenge for some.

No matter what position you play though, the best skate for you is always the best fitting one, regardless of brand name or cost. Get fit by a skate professional and don't be lured by marketing hype. Your feet and your game will thank you.

How long should hockey helmets be used?

All hockey helmets made and sold in the United States are required to be HECC or CSA certified.

On the back of every helmet is an HECC sticker that will tell you the certification number and expiration date of that certification (usually 5 to 6 years from the date of manufacture).

If the expiration date is unavailable, then try to find the model year of the helmet online. If it's older than 6 years, then it's time to replace it.
ive had mine for 6 years

-----------------------------

All helmets made for ice and roller hockey, regardless of brand or model, must be CSA and HECC certified. The HECC certification actually has an expiration date (usually about 5 years from the date of production). You can find the expiration date on the HECC certification sticker located on the back of every helmet.

While the safety features of the helmet will not suddenly stop working at the expiration date, it does mean that the padding and technology integrated into that helmet are now considered obsolete by the manufacturer, the HECC and many amateur leagues. Some leagues, mostly geared towards smaller children, will check the expiration date of the helmet and if the certification has expired, the player will not be allow to play.

That being said, I have a Cooper helmet I've been using since 1996. If I started playing again, I'd probably use it without a second thought.

Can you use a ice hockey stick for street hockey?

Yes i wouldn't use a very expensive one though, i would use a older stick that you had before or buy a kind of cheap stick probably around $20-$50

-------------------------

There are generally four types of materials used to make hockey stick blades; wood, composite graphite, ABS resin, and plastic. Most of these blades, depending on the model, also have some type of fiberglass weave integrated into their design.

Wood blades are meant to be used on ice only. The bottom of the blade will splinter fairly quickly on any other surface making the stick useless. Composite graphite blades are used on ice and sport court (roller hockey) surfaces only. ABS resin blades can really be used anywhere and plastic blades are used for street hockey only (ball only). Plastic blades are not stiff enough to handle the weight of pucks.

If your ice hockey stick as has an ABS resin blade, using it for street hockey will not be a problem. Otherwise, I would seriously discourage you from using it outside. Instead, Bauer, Sherwood, TRON, and Frontier all make relatively cheap street hockey sticks ($25 or less).

What kinds of injuries can occur playing hockey?

Anything can happen to you when playing hockey like breaking a leg or an arm. you need to wash your gear about once a month because all of the germs and bacteria on your pads will build up and you can get "staph"

AnswerHealth issues include staph infections, fungus, mold and minor to life threatening rashes and other infections. Pro players refer to the common hockey gear rashes as "gunk". A number of players have retired due to the debilitating symptoms of "gunk". Raw skin, rashes, open weeping flesh wounds, resistent to antibiotics. Joe Thornton of the Bruins suffered a serious infection to his hand from a minor cut. Amputation was even discussed. Fortunately he recovered completely and is now a spokesman for a gear cleaning system. Lecavalier had a similar infection on his ankle and missed a number of games last season while treating the problem. Cleaning gear is something relatively new in the hockey world. Equipment managers and trainers are constantly battling the "stink" - simply an outward sign of bacteria and fungus growing in the gear. A study at a Midwest university found extremely resistent bacteria growing in hockey gear. If you think about it what other workout gear do you sweat in and not wash? Nothing! Wash your gear often. There is a growing niche market of equipment cleaners addressing this very issue for hockey, football, lacrosse, and other protective equipment. It makes sense but up until recently there wasn't a good solution and changing the "stinky hockey" culture (no pun) was difficult. And of course you might break a bone or pull a muscle. But look around, you will find very active and excellent hockey players of all ages. The adult non-checking leagues have a lot of 30, 40 and 50 year old people playing. It is quite low impact on the body and is excellent exercise. Enjoy, see you on the ice. AnswerThere are lots of injuries that can happen while on the ice. One of the most famous cases is Travis Roy who 11 seconds into his college hockey career fell head first into the boards and paralyzed himself from the neck down. it was a freak accident that could happen at any time. an easy way to stay safe in hockey is to remember to keep your head up at ALL times, even when you are sliding into the boards. There are many more injuries, but are easy to prevent if everybody in the game stays calm and plays by the rules. AnswerAnything... you can break anything in hockey.... and damage nerves... get a concussion... hockey is a dangerous sport, more aggresive than football. Field HockeyField hockey is a limited contact sport, i.e. it is non-contact in nature and the rulebook, but contact is inevitable - basketball and soccer are some other limited-contact sports.

Common injuries in field hockey include (typical percentage of all field hockey injuries in brackets):

  • Knee injuries (15%) - typically sprains or ligament injuries from sudden changes in direction or contact with the ball or another player's stick.
  • Finger, hand and wrist injuries (15%) - typically fractures from contact with the ball or another player's stick, or abrasions from contact with the turf surface.
  • Ankle injuries (14.5%) - typically sprains from sudden changes in direction
  • Facial injuries (11%) - typically soft tissue injuries (sometimes concussions) from contact with the ball or another player's stick.
  • Thigh injuries (11%) - typically muscle strains
  • Back injuries (8.5%) - typically overuse injuries

How is a wooden hockey stick made?

A piece of wood is split. Then it is sanded. They then take the blade and glue it on and let it dry. After that, they paint it the desired color. In some cases, the name of a player is put on it.

How can you clean hockey gloves?

Depending on the material I would say either run them under your sink and use a toothbrush or just put them in the washer. I play soccer and I run my kangaroo leather soccer cleats through my washer and they are ok after I let them air-dry
