Skating backwards can be tough at first, but once you get going and start trying it's not too bad. When you aren't on the ice I'd actually recommend throwing on some roller blades and start working on the crossovers and backward skating. Start without a puck and then once you feel more comfortable try it with one.

To the OP, congrats on finally getting involved. Good call on getting a wooden stick first as well. I don't know if you already have skates, but I'd recommend buying them next as you can always go to your local rink for free skate events (if they have any). Once you're more comfortable on the ice and once you're ready to start playing in a game setting I'd then purchase the rest of the equipment piece by piece.
