I started at the same age. Before that I only played street hockey on roller blades. I thought I was really good at street hockey and was really discouraged after my first few games cuz I just plain SUCKED at skating. I must have fallen like 10 times in my first game. But don't worry if the same is the case for you, you'll get much better relatively quickly. After a couple seasons you'll feel really comfortable and by the time you're my age, 20, you'll feel more comfortable on the ice than you do walking around. But unless you have some incredible untapped athletic talent, don't expect to make Junior or the NHL. But that's ok, most people never even play with someone who makes it to the NHL, even if they've been playing since they were 6.
