Personally I have found that roller hockey training beats no training. Consider getting yourself some inline skates and some street sticks to work on hockey skills in the summer.

I found it particularly useful for practicing shooting, since you can practice that with a regular ice puck without too much difference, as long as you have something sturdy to shoot against, like a brick wall.

Some people think practicing with roller equipment hurts their ice hockey game, and they might be right, but as a beginner you're probably better off skating, stick handling and shooting as much as possible, regardless of whether it's perfect training or not.

Good luck.
