im desperate to start playing as well but living in scotland its not the biggest sport so its difficult to get a team and extremely expensive to play. there is a pro team at my local rink and their youth teams but they are really good and i would never get in and then there is a few recreational teams who for some reason all their players seem to be 40+ and im 18 so i dont think i shall be going there. there just isnt a big enough interest for their to be more team as majority of public dont know ice hockey exists over here

Why wouldn't you want to play with 40+ year olds? I'm 40 and still play with 20 year olds.

Our team is a mix of 20s,30s and 2 old guys at 40 (me) and one at 42.

I actually do not think they would care about your age at all, you should look into trying to play with them.

When I joined my Adult league at 20, most of the players were pushing 40 as well... and they were extremely excited to get some youth on the team! Think it makes them feel younger

I joined my Dad's mens league team when I turned 18. Great group of guys, and the average age was around 50. You'll have a lot more fun then you expect.
