Just go out and do your best.

I started a year and a half ago and go thrown in. I SHOULD have played beginners, but because of where I was living they had a tier 2 that I knew of.
The girls were so much help and I worked my *** off to get to be as good as they were. Sure I made my fair share of mistakes, but everyone does.

I went from being the fourth line LW and would usually get about 8 or 9 minutes a game to the next year top line LW and now am trying out for an NWHL team.

Am I the best?

No. God no.

I had to work twice as hard to be half as good as the other girls. I still do. I spend about 8 hours a week on the ice and about the same in the gym.

Go out, have fun and be a constant student.

Oh, and the best advice I ever got from my coach. "Keep your head up, keep your stick down, keep your feet moving and keep having fun."

Take that onto the ice with you and you'll be fine.
