started skating outdoors in January of this year. Before that i was just capable of skating circles and snow plow style stops. Had only skated maybe 3 times in the prior 15 years!

Now with about 3 hours per week outdoors in Dec - Feb, about 25 powerskating sessions, and 7 games, I'd call myself a competent beginner. Much more competent than where i'd have guessed where i'd be at 9 months in

in entry level beer league i can get up and down the ice relatively quickly, stay in position on the wing and cover my man, and have chipped in with a a hand full of points.

I doubt I be anywhere near where i am with out organized powerskating / hockey skills sessions. the basics come naturally with time but the small skills and pointers on skating, shooting passing, stick handling etc... are invaluable.

Take an organized class and get out there.
