Just like a golf club or field hockey stick, your baton needs to be properly sized. Whether it’s for a competition or you’re practicing your basics, the right sizes baton can make all the difference. To find your correct measurements, you need to measure both your arm span and height. First, have the baton twirler stand straight with the arms out and parallel to the floor. Then, using a tape measure, measure from the base of the neck, above the shoulder, to the end of the middle finger. If your measurement is not a round number, round up.
