This is John Galipault from Worthington, Ohio, telling you how to string your goalie head. This is what your goalie head may look like after you are done stringing it. This is a goalie stick with just the head, no pocket, goalie mesh, ball string, side wall string, hockey laces for shooting string, scissors, pliers and lighter. Take side wall string and place a figure eight knot at one end. Fold the top layer of the mesh so that diamonds match. Feed the strings through the top holes and through the diamonds. Pulling them tight and interlocking the string. Continue across the top of the head stringing through each hole and through the diamonds of the mesh. When you get to the end tie off your string through the last hole using a figure eight knot. Once you have the top of the head strung take another piece of string tie off one end, feed it through the top hole and through the adjacent diamond. Continue down the head of the stick, threading each hole and every other diamond interlocking the string. At the end of stringing the side wall tie off the string with the bottom hole leaving at least three inches for adjustment. Repeat this process for the other side of the side wall. You want to put in at least two shooting strings using the hockey laces at the top of your stick. Begin by weaving the hockey lace through the mesh alternating each end. Purpose is for shooting strings for the ball to release from the stick before it hits the plastic. Don't forget to cut any remaining string and burning the end. You shouldn't have more than a three inch piece of string after the knot. This is John Galipault from Worthington, Ohio, telling you how to string a goalie head.
