Learning to skate and play

Hey guys,

I'm 23 and I've played football all the way until the end of high school when I got hurt. I've missed playing sports and thought I'd never really be able to play a contact sport again. I found hockey as an option after my nephew told me about pick up games and rec leagues, ect.

I've been watching it for a year or so now. I know the rules and the jobs of each position. I just have no experience on the ice. I understand hockey from a viewer standpoint, but very far from a players standpoint.

I just want to play a contact sport again. I don't want to be gods gift to the game, but it would be nice to be competent enough to play in a house league. I'm from the east coast of the US, MD.

Any recommendations for skates for a starter and where to order them?
Any tips?
I can go around the rink on skates, but thats about it. Should I do classes as often as possible?

Thanks guys.
