Whenever I see the opposing goalie attack my forward, I just assume the forward deserved it. Do what you gotta do to protect yourself and your crease. I know I do. Then again, that's the kind of thinking that got me ejected from a game last season.

Good game and sweet Kohos. Probably won't play you again though. Looks like you got moved to the other conference.

I'm that guy who plays on three teams and tries to shoot the puck through goalies.

I'm the guy that has played descent hockey in his career and is now looking to enjoy the game for its simpler side. Yet when others play against me, they love to go extra hard to show me that they can play with me. Like to thank all the heavy stick workers (slashers, hackers & bender/plugs) and bench chirpers for reminding me why gloves still get shook, nightly yard sales on the ice still happen in beer league games.

Anyone know anything about the woodland roller hockey place? I'm starting with roller before moving up.

I think he's implying that you're implying that Roller < Ice.

Which, btw, is true.

That said, its a bad idea to start in roller if you know you're gonna transition to ice. May as well just start where you want to end up. Several roller habits are hard to break when making the switch.

I honestly don't think I'll play roller long enough to develop habits. I'm just getting my feet wet and seeing where I'm at. And since I'll be in Sacramento, I don't know if there is much ice hockey around there. As it is I'm driving 40 min to woodland lol.

I'm sure your just fine. As long as your enjoying the game, I'm happy. Thats the point I'm at with hockey. I actually get joy out of seeing new people and people that are still learning the game (technically we all are still learning no matter how long or how good you are) and that this game is growing in this state. When I started playing it back in the 80's, no one played it, and those who did, I knew them (like a small fraternity). Now I couldn't tell you how many people play this game now as it is the 2nd fastest and largest growing sports in the US, and top in California. Glad to finally see this game get some recognition as well as the youth and players coming out of this state.

So serious question. Never played hockey before, but like to consider myself fairly athletic, what's the best way to get started? Just sign up for the lowest level and see what happens? Go practice skating for a bit? The idea of going out there and absolutely embarrassing myself is petrifying

First go to a shop and get skates properly fitted, and then attend a few public skate sessions. Search online for some instructional videos, and do some dryland stickhandling with a ball at home. Once you are competent enough on your skates (not falling, being able to at least do a snowplow stop), sign up for a beginner adult hockey class. Also go to stick and puck, aka Gretzky hour to work on your stickhandling, shot and dodging the hundreds of children running around out there. Avoid going to drop-in until you're comfortable with doing all these things at the same time - you'll get in the way and it won't be any fun for you.

Good luck and have fun! It takes a lot of practice but it's totally worth it.

Thanks for the info, yeah i just graduated college and no longer have baseball or football to occupy all of my free time. Figured it was time to try something new and challenging. I've always loved hockey so i figure it made more sense to give it a try rather than join a beer league softball team or play pick up basketball
