I learned how to skate when I was 13, and I started hockey at 14. It took me around 5 months of skating lessons to learn all the proper technique and how to skate decently fast. I started my first season of hockey in the fall, also while doing powerskating once a week, and going for free ice whenever I could. I have found that as you could of guess, the more ice time the better. It really helped me as a late starter in to hockey.
