I don't wish to get into an argument, but a long stick isn't usually what causes hip lock. Don't get me wrong, it can contribute to it, you're right. But this doesn't sound like the case here, though I can't know until OP gives us more info. Hiplock is generally caused by a lack of confidence or ability in stickhandling. I played for several years in a small town roller league. It was mixed, from beginners to former college players and I saw beginners with this problem all the time. I was able to correct it every time, without getting them to change the stick.
