Couldn't be worse than me my first time playing. I am also 21. I started playing on my 17th birthday. Got out on the rink, started to skate, couldn't turn, ran straight into the boards and fell down. But i never stopped wanting to learn. I would skate 4-5 times a week and now I am proficient at skating, stickhandling, and shooting. I mean I still suck compared to who I play against, but I am a solid country mile better than when I was when I first started to play.

Best advice is: Don't stop doing something because of what others might think. **** all the players you play with. Just be concerned about yourself and getting better. Hit the ice as much as you can. Public skate is your best option. Once you get that down, start going to stick time sessions to work on skating and stickhandling at the same time. Once you get those two things down, work on passing and shooting (standing still and while skating). The more you do it, the more natural it will become.

I wish you the best of luck.
