A friend who also wants to play hockey would prefer if I didn't goal tend, so we might have a chance to play together. I don't see myself as an insane athlete (in fact, I am hardly an athlete at all.. I am a computer geek
I am not sure whether I should play ice or inline hockey. I don't have a job yet so I cannot afford top of the line things, or many things at all for that matter. In fact, the least expensive things in my area is actually brand new (Reebok) gear, rather than used things.
Help is appreciated! I'm really looking forward to playing :-) But I am also not looking to make it a really big future for me - just for fun. I love computers too much ;-)
as far as money goes, normally, goalies that play in inline leagues do so for free... teams generally look at it as doing a favor, and it helps fray the much higher cost of procuring goalie equipment. for ice, usually goalies pay money, but not full price... i normally see it at half the league dues of what skaters play.
... so i'd recommend inline... just my thoughts...
