Agreed completely. It will come. At first, I took confidence in my aggressiveness and compete level, knowing that "okay, I may not have the most skill, but I'll forecheck the hell out of you". Then I started learning how to crash the net.. neither of those are difficult skills. Once I started potting some goals based on creating turnovers and tapins, my confidence grew. The whole time, I worked on my skating and passing, which now are plus level. And as I saw the play open up for me easier because of my skill level, I learned how to shoot. Step by step.. nobody is good when they go out for the first time, hell, maybe even the first 100 times.

Play within yourself and take pride in what you're good at. Listen to your teammates who know what they're doing and take their advice, and you'll get better.
