If your team doesn't have a full set of D, just volunteer and do the best you can. I find most people want to play forward anyways so it's not hard to get slotted in D, especially in the lower levels.
The ideal is to be paired with a good D partner who can show you the ropes and ease the transition.
I don't mind. Right now I'm playing in a Church league in Winchester, but come summer it will be the lowest level of the summer Bell Sensplex league.
Yeah it will be kind of cool because right now things are looking like I might be playing with my dad (he's been playing since he was a boy and he's 50 now...still a great skater). So he should be able to teach me a lot.
