Is that you volunteering, Harv? =P
What would you say is the hardest part? Based on what I'm reading in other threads learning how to stop may be hard. It just looks so easy and beautiful when you're not the one actually doing it haha. How long does it take to learn how to skate more or less naturally?
The classes are seven weeks long, I didn't expect it would take so long. Each session is just half an hour long, but its still plenty of time (you get a total of 7 hours of practice time in between classes). So the first level is about 10 hours of ice time. I have always imagined its like learning how to ride a bike, at first you fall a lot but you get the hang of it pretty quickly and then it just becomes something natural.
Thank you for replying to my thread everyone, I know its not very hockey-related in that I don't really want to learn to skate to play hockey. I think it would be fun, but I wouldn't want to get hit (I'm a bit of a coward). I rather watch the players get hit from the stands. =D
