I agree with taking time to learn to skate first but a year seems like a lot of wasted time to me. Not to mention you could be an amazing skater but when you put gear on for the first time your skating balance and posture is all out of whack for a good while. Learn to skate well, then do both together after that, skating and hockey activities. Just my opinion.

Good luck goonx, have fun.
Whatever works, right?
