There are a few tried-and-true ways to tape a hockey stick, and we explain them all in our How to Tape a Hockey Stick guide. How a player tapes a hockey stick varies depending on personal preference. Some players tape from the butt end to the tip of the blade, and others tape specific areas, like just one section of the blade.
The best way to tape the top of your stick is to build a butt end knob perfectly suited to your grip and style of play. Tear the hockey tape into strips, winding them one by one around the handle until you’ve created the exact size knob you want. Add extra grip by wrapping hockey tape down the handle under the knob. For detailed instructions, refer to our How to Tape a Hockey Stick guidelines.
Use hockey tape to add grip to your stick’s handle, shaft, and blade. Some players also tape their fingers or wrists for added support, or use hockey tape to secure their shin guards.
The best hockey tape to use depends on your personal preference. Howies cloth tapes rank high among our customers, as do cloth tapes from Pride and Renfrew.
Hockey tape is predominantly an equipment tape designed to add grip and protect stick blades from moisture damage and ice buildup. Athletic tape is used to wrap injuries to fingers or ankles, for example, or to create stability for injured joints, ligaments, or tendons.
You should use black hockey tape if you want to hide the puck from defenders and goalies. You should use white hockey tape if you want to enhance the visibility of the puck for yourself.
