My age is 22 but the league is just adult D-2 (second to lowest). I played roller hockey when I was in High School, but been playing Ice for about 6 months. I figure playing for such a short time I still just going to be learning more and more but I am pretty strong on my skates and quick.
Roller hockey does not have the same lateral movement so you will have to break certain roller hockey habits. Also you should do the various cone drills, if at all possible, to work on the lateral movement required for hockey. Watch some intro level kids practice and see how the drills should be done properly.
