Great to see another Aussie getting into it. As a relative beginner myself one thing people need to work on is skating. Seems stupid but I really feel beginners and even intermediate players here really underestimate the importance of skating and don't have a good grasp of edge control.
A lot of people avoid doing things they struggle with and they just set themselves back. Also don't avoid Oakleigh its a great place to skate... far less people, better ice to skate on than icehouse public rink and you'll play most of your games there when u join a team. Good to get used to it.
By all means work on stick handling and shooting etc at stick n puck as well as the off ice stuff but don't neglect skating. Most importantly have fun... I'll be seeing ya out there
