Beginner / Youth Field Hockey Sticks

Youth Field Hockey Sticks

Your field hockey stick is your main weapon out there on the field. It's your central connection to the ball, and an extension of your personal talents. When you're looking for a new field hockey stick or buying your first, you need to find the one that best suits your talents, skills, personal style, and budget. But how do you decide, and what are you really looking for? Is a $30 stick so much worse than a $100 one? What size is best for you? Does your position matter? Which brand is the best?

Sports Unlimited stocks a vast array of field hockey sticks for the beginner or youth player. These sticks are designed for younger players, and run between 28" and 33" in length. To help them learn the game, most of our youth sticks are made from wood composite, which is the most forgiving field hockey stick material. But with such a large collection of sticks, young and first-time players, and their parents, can get confused on how to choose the best stick for them. Well, we're here to help you along and match you to the perfect field hockey stick, so you can wield the best tool when you take on the competition out there. 

First off, it's important to learn more about how to choose the best field hockey stick, how sticks are priced, sized, built, and designed, so you can make the most informed decision. For instance, depending on play style, there may be different features you would look for in girls field hockey sticks than you would those used by adult males. Learning what works best for you and your style of play will help you find the right hockey equipment.

Secondly, I can't believe we're saying this as a retailer, but just because you spend a lot on a stick, doesn't mean it's the best stick out there or the best stick for you. Generally, the more expensive a stick, the more rigid, powerful, and in turn, less forgiving it is. In other words, if you spend a good amount of money on a stick, you're giving yourself less room for error, and are going to need a higher level of skill to perform effectively with it. When looking for a beginner level stick, it's important that you find the stick that will compliment your style of play and help you learn the game,  instead of just going for the really expensive one that must be the best. Trust us, we'd rather you have a great stick that's perfect for your game, than make a few extra bucks.

For youth player, wooden field hockey sticks are definitely the way to go. A very effective material to learn the game, wood sticks boast good power, with less rigidity than carbon or fiberglass, making them perfect for learning to control the ball; the most critical skill in the game. Keep in mind that most wood sticks are wrapped, with interesting colors and styles to make them look like higher-end sticks. At Sports Unlimited, we stock a variety of entry-level wooden field hockey sticks for every position and player.

So browse through our huge selection of boys and girls field hockey equipment and sticks and we're sure you'll find the perfect field hockey stick for you, at the best price out there!
