Okay, so I'm 15 years old, I started playing hockey for the first time in Bantam last year, and I think I did alright, I wasn't the worst player out there but I definitely wasn't the best. Last night, I had my first skate back on the ice in the Midget division, and I'm really having trouble with pretty much everything. I was never taught to shoot, I rarely can lift the puck, I have decent speed but I was last in pretty much every drill. I have an option to either stay in the Midget divison or join a rec league with no hitting. What does everything think I should do?
Play where you think you'll have the most fun. Whether that's on a team where you'll enjoy pushing yourself to keep up, or on a team where you can relax a bit and just have some laughs with friends while playing hockey is really up to you. But choose fun over being stressed, bored or miserable because you picked a team that you thought you should be on rather than the one you wanted to be on.
