I haven't played competive hockey in six years, and am about to begin on December 2nd a 3 month high school season. I don't think I know what I am getting myself into.
I went public skating to see how well I could skate and I was as good as I was 6 years,I can stop, skate backwards, cross over, accelerate and have good balance. My skating should be fine but I am not sure how well my legs will hold up in the first couple of weeks. I have been playing pick up roller hockey games every Sunday for the past year and have gone on 30 mile bike rides in the past year so my statima should be OK. I am honestly worried about the physical game the most, I am a sophomore so hopefully I make the JV team instead of Varsity that way I don't get completely dominated by people 40 pounds bigger than me.
But, I have heard some stories that the JV team has kids on it that have zero hockey IQ, can't stop, can't skate backwards, can barely skate, which would probably pencil me in on the varsity team, even though I am not even close to that caliber of a player.
