I started when I was 28, last August, so I am just coming up to a year on skates. I would say that I am close to competent. I can stop great on one side and ok on another, but I just need a little more practice on the one side and should have it soon. I can do forward crossovers, but not backwards ones. I play in a beginners league and in game situations I would say that I am in the top 10 of skaters in the league. I think in another year I will be very strong on my skates in almost all situations. I would say that I skate at least once, more often twice, and sometimes three times a week though. And I have not taken a week off without skating yet. So it has been a lot of hard work, but there is nothing like being able to play ice hockey after watching it for so long.
