I guess I'm wondering because I doubt myself a lot and for many reasons I can't practice as much as I would like to. Just hope I'm not behind where I should be, haha.
I went about once a week to open skate for about 4 months and really tried to practice things, not just skate around. Between that and a 10 week Beginners hockey class that started around month three, i felt quite comfortable. Some things still cause me trouble of course, but i don't feel like i'm embarrassing myself.
