I'm a goalie! What do I need and how should my OBO equipment fit?
The goalkeeper’s equipment is made up of a mix of protective and goal stopping gear. The kickers and leg guards cover your feet and leg, for shot stopping and kicking the ball away. The shorts and groin guard protection your lower body, with body armour protecting against shots to your body. Your hand protectors help you make aerial saves, with your stick giving you use in the game for stopping the ball for saves and being aggressive in tackles or interceptions. Last but not least, your helmet keeps your head safe. View individual products and the OBO sizing chart for more information about picking the right size.
How do you know what size stick is best for you?
There are many theories regarding the best stick length for a player, but generally stick length is a function of height.

3'6" to 3'7"
3'7" to 4'0":

Is it better to have a longer stick for your size? You should use a stick you are most comfortable with and that is suitable for your height. How much should a stick weigh?
Most players use a medium weight stick (M). Light sticks (L) are sometimes used by offensive players for quicker stickwork. Heavy sticks (H or T) are sometimes preferred by defensive players to increase the power of drives and the weight of the stick for tackling.

Would you recommend a composite stick for a beginner player?
We would recommend a composite stick to those more experienced players. Composite sticks have a bigger rebound and beginners may find this hard to control. View our suggestions to beginner players.
Does the United States have National Field Hockey Teams?
Yes, the US has a Men's and Women's National Team. Please visit www.usfieldhockey.com for more information.
Should my composite stick chip?
Yes, the paint on composite sticks will chip. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the game of field hockey some chipping will occur with the graphics of your stick. Chipping of the graphics does not affect the playability of your stick. You can use Shaft Guard Tape to wrap the shaft of your stick to prevent this from happening.
What is a good defender stick?
Well, there isnt really such a thing. It is important to know your strengths and weaknesses before choosing a stick. Some defenders prefer sticks that have a carbon reinforcement or are composite (for greater power when hitting the ball) but you need to find the stick that is right for you as a player and will make the most out of your strengths while improving your weaknesses.
What are the advantages/disadvantages to
using a composite stick? Composite sticks offer several advantages over wooden sticks but also
have several drawbacks associated with them as well. In general,
composite sticks are thought to have greater striking power
when hitting the ball. They also have a maxi toe construction
which allows for greater lift when executing long flicks. However,
most composite sticks do not have as nice of a touch as a wooden
stick offers. Generally, wood has better ball control properties.
Again, it is important to determine what your personal strengths
and weaknesses are when choosing the stick that is right for
