I wouldn't be so hard on yourself in regards you getting scored on in your pick up games. Since there seems to be a big range of skill levels in your area, it seems inevitable you will have to face some higher level players that will dangle you from time to time.

I'm stoked to have any level of goalie in the net when playing; I have a ton of respect for those that play goalie. It doesn't affect my enjoyment of the game if the goalie is getting scored on. I mean there are 5 other players on the ice that could have prevented the puck from getting to the net. I think that the pressures that some goalies put on themselves is too much. The forwards need to back check and the d have to hold their blue line and challenge.

While the beginner classes may seem too elementary, if they can show you new techniques (like the butterfly) then I would say it would be worth it; it certainly would not hurt.
