I don't want to just watch the game anymore, I want to be involved. Just finished my first skating lessons and now I'm going to take an intro to hockey class.
So all in all I'm just wondering if anyone else has learned to play hockey at my age?
When I went to my first hockey school, there was a 55 year old lady learning how to play.
If she can do it then you can too. Just make sure you can skate before you go there.
At a minimum, you should know how to skate forward in a straight line, skate backwards in a straight line, snowplow stop, and do crossovers. It doesn't matter if you're slow, stumbly, or if you fall alot doing them... you should just be comfortable enough on your skates to be able to attempt these things.
If not, I'd recommend spending some more time learning how to skate.
