Like I'll do the circles backwards tightly moving fast, but if i pick up too much speed - i go down.
Another challenge is stopping on a dime, or taking a super-sharp turn to get back into a play i overskated.
Generally speaking, I'm just too slow to be effective right now. Rather than moving my feet, i reach out with my stick, one of the true beginner mistakes...
I'm in NYC. The league has no divisions, we are all lumped in together like a big pot of stew...
There's no requirement, there's just no way I could start skating/playing ice hockey in March 2010 having never skated/played before and enter a real league, especially one like this that had no divisions.
which rink chelsea, abe stark, or LIC
