• Indoor Field Hockey Sticks Are Now Available at A Chic with Stix

    Even though the regular field hockey season is coming to a close soon, indoor field hockey season is just around the corner. Therefore, A Chic with Stix has once again attended to your needs and has indoor field hockey sticks available for purchase. Brands include Dita, TK, Gryphon and Grays.

    Indoor Field Hockey Sticks Available in New Jersey

    TK and Gryphon Indoor Field Hockey Sticks NJ

    Indoor field hockey sticks are similar in shape and feel as the regular outdoor sticks, however they are thinner. In most indoor field hockey leagues you can not have much of a back swing or no back swing at all, so indoor sticks do not need to be as powerful.

    Indoor surfaces vary, but are not limited to turf and/or indoor courts such as roller hockey rinks. Therefore, all of the brands have adjusted their outdoor sticks to the indoor surfaces and the international indoor field hockey rules.

    Check out our Indoor Field Hockey Sticks page for more information on each indoor stick we have available at our New Jersey store. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us any day of the week at 732-403-0285 or contact us via our contact form.

     

  • Meet Cat Crap: Field Hockey Goggles Lens Cleaner Anti-Fog

    Do your goggles fog up when you play? Unfortunately, one of the problems with lens goggles is that they tend to fog up based on the weather conditions and sweat. However, we at A Chic with Stix have found the solution for you…Cat Crap!

    Despite the name, it really does work! We have tested it.

    Cat Crap Anti-Fog Lens Goggles Cleaner

    Cat Crap is an anti-fog lens cleaner that can be used on your field hockey goggles. It cleans and polishes glass and plastic, repels lint and dust, and prevents lenses from fogging. Cat Crap comes in small containers, therefore it does not take up a lot of space in a field hockey bag and is great for travel. Cat Crap is also a fine product made in the United States by EK Ekcessories.

    Cat Crap Anti-Fog Lens Cleaner for Field Hockey GogglesCat Crap application is very simple:

    1. Before using, remove any abrasive particles from the lens surface.
    2. Apply a small amount to the lens with just a touch of your finger and spread over entire lens surface.
    3. Buff off with clean, soft cotton cloth or chamois until clear and streak free. Use as needed.

    We also have Cat Crap Lens Cleaning Kits. The kits include:
