So I played land/field hockey instead as a substitute - sadly no bandy possible in Denmark
Then later playing lacrosse when i could afford equipment....and that is actually traditional summer training for canadian hockey players.
Off course it's totally different stick control in fieldhockey so I really surprised/perplexed some icehockey kids using my landhockey stick while playing rollerscate hockey. (offcourse my landlubber feet was not match against 12 years old growing up on scates). But i did show them some moves they havent seen before
