How good will my skating have to be for my "Beginner Learn to Play" Class?

Yeah, you're fine. I still don't feel great about going backwards, can't do a fast stop on my right side, don't feel comfortable using crossovers in a game...and I've been playing in games for almost 6 months! You do what you can, and work on the things you can't.
There's a lot to hockey besides skating. The foundation is certainly skating, and it's more fun if you can skate, but even slower/worse skaters can contribute by paying attention and knowing where to be. I'm by far the slowest and worst skater at my Monday afternnoon games, but by being ready for the pass and then sending it along to the guy moving up the ice, I've been able to get a few assists.
