I started playing late in life, and have been at it for about four years.
The following basics should be considered. Are your skates properly fitted and sharpened? Is your stick the right length?

When do you fall? At random or when executing a certain move. Example when turning to your left, trying to stop, etc?

Do you fall to the ice or crash into the boards/net, etc?

Is contact with other players a factor?
