I'm saying, my first foray at skating lessons had no prospect of hockey at any point in the future, and so it was kind of meaningless for me and I didn't get anywhere

...8 years later though, I bought all the equipment and joined a beginner hockey league, and soon after signed up for learn to skate to play hockey, plus got a job scorekeeping at the rink, and I quickly became a decent hockey player for my experience level.

Skating is good, but you need the hockey as well, they go hand in hand.
