I watched a "B" level game when I was starting and it looked pretty basic. I then watched a "Bronze" level game and laughed it off. Then once I got onto the ice in a game situation, I found out that even the C-level players were beyond me. Even now when I watch my own games on video, I look really slow and dysfunctional, yet when I'm on the ice it feels like I'm flying.
Ampersand - Check the rink. They may have an evaluation-type clinic that will help you get placed. If not, take a stab at it, and you will immediately notice if you fit in or not. The rink manager / hockey director should be able to help.
