Hockey Stick question - hockey dad
Just wondering, what the downsides are to playing with a longer stick?
Subject is 6yr old boy (BD Aug 2005), playing house league with 7 and 8 yr old (2004/03 birth year). He is doing well, but having a bit of "stick anxiety", because he has the shortest stick in the dressing room. Well he is the shortest player, - there is one 7yr old friend of similiar size. He is doing well, had an end-end rush last game and stick handled through the whole team.
I cut the stick in August before the season started, and had it around the bottom of his nose at that time (with skates on). It's a wooden stick, youth size (thinner shaft than junior). I still have one uncut stick (bought at the end of last season (buy 1, get 1 50% off). Figure I mind as well let him use it (it's a black wooden Crosby Reebok), as next year he will likely want a composite stick (they are shiny, and most of his team is using them)
