I've grown up loving hockey, and it's not like I'm new to the game. I have a bf who used to play fairly competitively, and still refs high level hockey, so he can help me out a bit, but do any of you have some tips for someone who can't really skate well/is just starting out?
Oh ps- I'm only 5'3 --> is this going to be a problem?
I have a few suggestions (I was in the same boat 2 years ago)
First: POWERSKATING POWERSKATING POWERSKATING. Get into even a summer class, it will do wonders.
Second: Look for women's classes. Calgary has them all the time, I'm sure Victoria would too.
Third: Find a beiginner team. (NCHL or other)
Fourth: Public skate
Fifth: Have fun and don't worry about your play. If you don't score a goal all season, who cares. As long as you're learning and having fun, you're doing great!
