When did you start?

Just sorta wondering what general age most people started skating?
For me it was 3 years old (small town sask, what else is there to do?)

When I was maybe 4-5 years old. My school taught us ice skating. Then hockey.

I started at 14 in the desert of New Mexico. Then I lost 4 years when I went to Military School.

I am now 26.

I was 7 when I started skating. No lessons, just put on the skates and head out to the lake with my older brothers.

I started roller blading my freshman year of college (18). Started roller hockey a couple of months later IIRC. Started ice skating last March (27), started my first ice league this March.

Started playing hockey at 14. Took skating lessons when I was 6, but pretty much had to learn how to skate again.

I've been skating for 40 years now. It's like walking, I never remember my life when I didn't skate. Not quite as fast as I was 15 years ago but after 2 knee surgeries and a hamstring that I tore in half I guess that's to be expected. I still play against a tier 2 junior team a lot and I can keep up with them. I do hook and hold a little though.
