Last night I went to a second open training session with a rec hockey team in Nottingham and I realised how much more fun it is to play with better players than yourself and how much more you push yourself as a result.

Up until now my limited ice hockey experience has been gained from playing in scrimmage games, turning up and slotting into the beginner line, everyone ending up chasing the puck around rather than playing for position.

I've been offered the chance to register with the rec team and am going to take it, even though I'm still a relative novice. Just being able to train with them regularly will improve my game a hell of a lot more than the occasional scrimmage session will, I felt a better skater after just two open sessions with them!

Why didn't I start this sooner? God I love hockey.
