Today was my 2nd ever roller hockey training session, and OMG I LOVE THIS SPORT!
Started off doing some shooting, and then a pass/shoot drill, then some skating. On the shooting drill, I HIT THE NET!!!!! There was no goalie in it, but I don't care! And I wasn't wearing my glasses, so I'm very pleased!
Then I was playing a scrimmage game with the U14 guys. I managed to intercept a pass, and did this awesome backhand pass...right back to the other team. Ooops.
Overall, really enjoyed it, and will be going back. And a lovely parent has offered to sell me a kit bag for cheap, which is awesome
I'm still working on ways to save even more money, I'd like to get all my protective gear for around £150. It's proving tricky, I keep coming in at like £200, although that is with a stick...
Oooh, and today, I took 1 x stick to the face (thank you the inventor of full cages) and 1 x puck to the leg, but I'd squeezed into a loaner pair of ice pants, so it was OK, since it hit the padding.
