Good guides to learn?
 
I'm kinda late to it in life, but after talking with some friends I've decided I'd really like to learn how to play. I don't expect to be terribly good, mind you, but at least to handle myself and not be too embarrassing at a pickup game or two. :D

There's several places in town I can learn how to skate at, and plenty of places I can buy gear.

But I was wondering if people on the boards had good suggestions on books, DVDs, or even webpages I could go to for helping me pick up basics or drills for things like stick handling, passing, and shooting?

Thanks!

www.hockeyshot.com It has some tips on skating and different shots... might help you.

http://www.playbetterhockey.com/ is a good one.

Just remember that reading or watching anything won't make a difference. You have to go out and practice it over and over again to be any good.

Best of luck.

I see you're in Hilliard (me too). Don't worry about drop-ins and looking like a fool. There is always a good mix, one or two new guys and a few high level players, mostly middle of the road guys. The lower D leagues at the chiller are good for beginners and there are plenty of stick and puck sessions. There's plenty of ice time within the city, and Iceworks (that rink in a tent in Worthington, by the bud factory) is open in the fall/winter/spring.

Thanks to all, especially about the rink info!

Both have excellent DVD series.

Both Robby Glantz and Laura Stamm are coming to the chiller soon. Check to make sure that you'll be allowed in, but the age thing I saw said bantam and up for the Glants clinic and the Stamm info says all ages and ability levels, so I don't see why they wouldn't take your money.
