Stick and puck in my area (Western Michigan) is $6 per session (usually an hour), $5 if you bring your own puck. Helmets are mandatory.

You should also try drop-in hockey. These are basically open scrimmages and you will find a wide range of talent. It WILL help you learn how to play in game type conditions. Full gear is recommended.

Both of these options allow you to get started playing at a minimum of cost. Hockey schools and leagues like HNA are great but can cost $400 or more per season.
