So my question is, how good exactly does ones skating have to be to even be able to compete in midget ice hockey? I can skate to a certain extent, but I'm not sure if its anywhere near enough to be able to play.
As long as you don't convince yourself you should be playing 20 minutes a game, you'll be alright. Go in with the expectation of not getting playing time and work your ass off in practice and then go out and skate whenever you can.
