Goal Stick Sizing
When picking out a goal stick, having the right size paddle is very important. If possible, you should have your goal skates when picking out a new stick so you can be at the exact height as you would be when you are on the ice. Grab a stick that you think is a correct size and get into your stance. The blade of the stick should be flush with the ice/ground. If toe of the blade is coming of the ground the stick is on the ground and the heel will be lifting of the ground. If the stick is too big the heel will be on the ground and toe will coming off the ground.
When choosing a curve you should think if you are going to be playing the puck often, do you use a backhand and what style do you play. If you play the puck quite often you may want a curve with more loft so you can get the puck into the air easier. You may like a straighter stick if you use your backhand often so there is more blade to use. If you are a butterfly goalie most goal coaches like you to have a stick with some loft so the puck will be deflected into your chest or you can deflect the puck high into the glass or get a stop of play by deflecting the puck out of play. You should take all of these suggestions into consideration when choosing a new stick and don't be afraid to change your curve with every new stick until you find the curve that works best for you.
