Also, is full gear required? If it is, I'll need to get a new set
When I took the class I could not really stop or skate backwards. I was in level 1 and was one of the better skaters. I can go to level 2 now.
You need full equipment, they teach you to skate with your stick and you will do puck drills. The first thing they do is a full group warmup with skating drills then split into levels and do skating and puck drills and sometimes a scrimmage at the end of class.
I'm sure you would be fine for the class as some people will hardly be able to skate. I was gonna take it again but I would miss too many in spring.
