I hear ya. I've been playing for 13months now, I was 21 at the time and I've improved by leaps and bounds to what I originally was able to do. I would highly recommend skating as much as you can. Go into a corner during open skate and just practice the technical points of skating, they help set the foundation and those are the things you want to build upon. The more your on your skates, the better. My rink is 12 miles away which is kind of a pain especially when I play twice in one day. My rink doesn't offer stick and puck but that is an excellent way to get going with playing hockey because open hockey can be a bit intimidating because you can look like a pylon with some of the really good guys out there. Though, I've found most to be quite nice to new players and help out when they can.
