    Ask for a shallow hollow (9/16" or shallower) when getting your skates sharpened.

    Type the following into YouTube's search box and check out all the free videos you can watch (and practice on ice or dry-land):

    "USA hockey stickhandling drills"

    "ice hockey skating"

    Barring some amazing full-speed collision (with someone who can really boogie on skates), the worst injury a novice is likely to get is a concussion or tooth damage when they fall and hit their head on the ice or boards (and the lower jaw suddenly decelerates into the upper jaw). Such tooth or brain damage is easily avoided by wearing a good, custom mouth guard (and, NO, wearing a full cage is no substitute for this).

    And hockey gloves .... when you fall (and you/we will), nothing kills your motivation to try difficult skating maneuvers more than the pain of hyper-extended thumbs and fingers.
