Been playing since I was 5 in leagues(?) moved to Florida when I was 15 and just now have gotten back to the rink at 20 so yeah..played a bit during my vacations back to Canada but just now starting to play on the rinks again.
Ive been skating 2-3 times a week for a month and a half so I can finally get into it. Lessons start end of the month. I've gotten down forward skating, balance, turning and Im working on stops. (I skated when I was a kid so I had the balance and whatnot already).
LOL, thats what I am doing this year. Not because I want to run it up or be the best. I just don't have a lot of time to stay in shape anymore and A/B hockey would kill me right now. Went down to C division and back on defence (natural Center).
If I have some time this summer to drop a few pounds and build some endurance back up I'll jump back to A/B
I started skating when I was 4. Played goaltender for the first few years of minor hockey then I got bored of it and decided to play player. Played minor till I was 16 then went on to juniors where I played till I was 21. Then it was time to get a education. I'm 28 now and play beer league twice a week. Its not as fun as it used to be but its nice to get out of the house and socialize and get some exercise.
