I just started playing hockey in September (6 months ago). When I started, I could only skate forward, crossover left, and stop left. So yes it is enough to start with.

Now, if you're like me you'll have a desire to improve, and also quickly realize your skating skills are insufficient to do what you want to on the ice. So you'll play and practice and work on your skills, and just be getting out there and playing regularly you'll improve, especially if you push yourself. In the 6 months since I started, playing twice a week I can now crossover both ways forwards, stop both ways, skate backwards, and am working on my backwards crossovers (I play D so backwards skating is a big focus for me).
