For beginner hockey, yes it's fine!

But really try to work on it in your free time. When I played as a kid, I could only stop on one side, and not very well. As an adult, it took me many weeks of working to stop on both sides. Literally going to open skate looking silly holding the boards to learn to stop, and then working on outdoor rinks as well.

You'll probably always have a strong and weak side for stopping, but any progress you can make to improving is good!
