As elshupacabra mentioned, try not to skimp on the helmet. It's your only noggin. You can find plenty of used equipment on ebay for cheap prices but I'd head to the shop and get as good of a helmet as you can. Once you get to the point of playing in stick practice games or in leagues, remember that no-check does not mean no- contact. Occasionally you'll get knocked down. With a good helmet, you'll almost always get back up. Just a little more slowly
As for learning to skate, although money can be tight, only a few lessons from a figure skating instructor can work wonders. Say every other week for $30 a half hour or so. Well worth the $$$.
