Don’t know how to skate? No problem. I guarantee, if you really want to play hockey, learning to skate will be as easy as learning to play.
It can be as easy as you hitting the ice with a stick and your gear, jump in on a game, and bam, you’ll be learning how to skate.
If that’s not your style, call your local rink to inquire about open skating times and take a little time to get used to being on the ice.
If you’d like more instruction, take a learn to skate class before joining a team.
And remember, falling down is part of the game. Even the pros do.
