a ball is not bad to practice with, as most beginners first have to learn to use their stick. most of it is eye-hand coordination, and if you practice 2 hrs a day with a ball it will improve your feel for your STICK.

now if you want to be a good dangler you need to get a puck to practice with. a green bisquit works everywhere, i use it at home and even on tarmac and it slides just fine.

and don't forget to elevate yourself about 2" as you'll be wearing skates on the ice.
