It's the ice, it's makes everything harder. I've always told people, everyone can run and jump, but not everyone can skate. If you can't skate....you can't play.

Skating is HUGE! Even if you aren't the best player being able to skate well will make a big difference. Skating gets you into the play and allows you to do more things while you're on the ice. It's the one skill set you really can't live without and it's hard to hide. You can get by with a crappy shot (pass first), bad hands (don't dangle), and little hockey sense (play smart positional hockey).

Think how hard basketball would be if you didn't know how to run and jump...
