I started playing organized hockey at around 30, but I had played a lot of pickup before that, so I was pretty good in my beginner league.

As for the equipment, that's way more than you need to spend on skates. You can find a really solid skate for $250, and as a beginner you won't benefit from a top end skate anyway.

I'd actually spend a little more on your stick. If you're going to go as high as the One80, you might as well spend a little more and get a Supreme One95 from year or two ago. That's a fantastic stick, and the price has come way down over the last couple of years.

Anyway, good luck!
