I have always figured that adult hockey, travel hockey, and figure skating are all for insiders only. To get into these activities it takes money and a good effort. Not only are they exclusive mentally, they take a good deal of money to participate, excluding someone who may need help to get involved.

You may get help that comes with spending money. For example the guy in the equipment shop may help you while you are buying stuff and giving him money but without that, there is no need to help you and where else are you going to get someones attention?

Pick ups become full and then they become closed. Adult teams, even lower level teams don't want the beginner to participate. Upper level teams are for friends only (and good playing friends too) If you want to get in a pick up you may need to know someone who knows who is running it to ask.

One funny I notice is that people who run hockey things never seem to realize that they need to say if things are for adults or children.
