I'm a firm believer that if they want to play, they will beg you to play.
no we're at Bethpage - nice new(ish) rink there and that's where I also play pick up when not a league game.
to everyone thx for all the advice so far - will be taking them more often and get them some basic gear too. Two at a time is rough... money and time.
Just hope that the hockey programs will take "hockey beginners" when they're like 5 or 6?
I do wish to coach kids at some point since that's a lot more fun than standing at the sidelines for an hour+.
