How do you measure a stick for your height?

The stick should fall between the bottom of your chin and the bottom of your nose when you're on your toes.
First know that every hockey player should take two sticks to the arena. When you're new, stick to cheaper sticks! Buy one longer stick, and one shorter stick. Use both, and see which one you like. A stick that's too long might encourage you to skate high and affect your stance, while a stick too short might cause you to crouch over or keep your head down too much.
Ultimately, it's what feels comfortable for you. I like my stick cut so that it falls just under the chin.
