Exercises to develop balance

I've taken up skating again with a real interest in finally developing myself enough to play hockey. Currently, I can't stop or do much of anything on the ice for prolonged periods because of two things: poor balance and a pronated left foot. The problem with my foot will be less serious once I develop some muscle and find my insoles, but the balance thing will obviously take some time. I get to the rink at least once a week, but I'm finding it harder to go more because I'm not getting better as fast as I'd like to. Are there any exercises I can do at home to build my balance? I'm 6'0 175-80 (down from 225 due to illness over the past year) so it's almost like I'm starting from a clean slate physically- I have very little muscle anywhere but my legs, and am rail thin. I'm going to begin bulking up with muscle, but I think I need to work on gaining balance first, something I've never really had.

Any suggestions would be great!
