Skating is by far the most important skill. If you can find a skating class, that's awesome. Or attend an adult skills clinic for beginners. Skate whenever you can and work on your edges, turns, crossovers, stride, backwards, forwards, stops, etc!
Beyond that, see if you can find a beginner's league so you can play with other people in your skill set. You'll also make a lot of friends and have a lot of fun. After skating, just playing hockey and getting in situations, learning to pass, reading plays, shooting, scoring, etc it's all about repetition.
I am 5"8 and in my grade 10 in highshool. Some of my friends are askig me to join my schhools hockey team and i would like too but i just dont feel like im good enough. Thats why i have come here for advice.
