With all sports I have been a part of, there is a law of diminishing returns so it's the first part of the learning curve that I enjoy the most where the improvements in skills are most pronounced.
Accepting that you will fall over and over is tolerable because each week you make rapid gains in your abilities. The condition is that you have to work hard and devour every bit of information you can find.
This usually lasts for a period of about 5 years until I run into physical limitations or the amount of effort put in is no longer worth the gain in skill. I do agree, hockey is a difficult sport to learn compared to some of the others I have done but worth every minute.
