And I mean she can't even stride forward, she'll fall on her face. She basically rolls forward below walking speed and tries to balance herself with her stick. I can't respect her. I mean why doesn't she go to public skate ot rollerskating or something, so at least she can skate forward? Oh, all she does during warmup is taking SLAPSHOTS!
Whew...I'm relieve that it's not me you're talking about! I can definitely skate forward! Still working on getting better at backwards and getting comfortable at crossovers, but I don't need my stick to balance.
I agree, if I were just learning to skate I would definitely want to do public session or something. Maybe for the first few times I'd be wobbly during a game, but I honestly can say that if I couldn't skate at all, I would be pretty terrified to be out there with sticks and puck and people flying all around me. It would scare me not to be able to get out of the way.
