    Default Wing It

    I played Street hockey for the first time friday night
    ( )...and i went out and winged it....I scored 3 goals that night....The best thing to do is get a hold of skating first, learn how to skate forward, backwards. Then use a stick practice Speed and moving the stick around...then maybe try with a puck. Just believe and you can suceed...southpark:

    I wish I scored 3 goals in my first game. I left my first game early when I tried to transition backwards and wound up on my ass, hurting my tailbone and whole assmuscle area.

    so i figured id ask this question sense i havnt seen it anywhere else in the thread

    any tips on stopping, especially during play while say chasing the puck into the corner

    i got back on the ice for the first time in at least 10 years and played a pick up game at bay harbor, everything came back pretty quick but i noticed that from the 10 years of playing roller and no ice i picked up alot of bad habits when it comes to stopping

    I just went ice skating Saturday down in Escondido, and I am also considering buying my own skates. Does anyone know of any good places to go buy some in the San Diego area? I want new, not used and I was wondering if they have hockey skates for women or you just have to buy a small size? When I go skate I use a size 6 hockey skate. I always have to ask for hockey skates or they just hand me figure skates. I can skate foward ok and a little bit backwards, but the one thing I cannot do for the life of me is stop. Also for some reason my right foot always kills me. I wonder if its bc its my weaker foot, or if I favor it more i dont know... but at IceOPlex they are offering classes at 11 dollars an hour, once a week and im really thinking about doing it. Cause those little 8 year olds that skate better than me really piss me off!!

    There are several places online to buy skates at a better price. If you can find a place there to get the right size then order from Greatskate.com or Hockeygiant.com always have weekly specials of clearance items.

    I suggest take the class. 11 bucks is nothing if you really want to learn.

    No no no. Don't buy online your first time. You need to try them on and get a good fit and service if you need adjustments at a later date. You should be able to find a decent pair for around $150 for your first pair...

    Vic was my coach at one point and i grew up playing with his son, Vic is a standup guy.

    I just started playing pick up on monday nights at the skating edge (or bay harbor as i have always referred to it)

    That sounds reasonable, there are a couple of stores in SD that im going to check out, are there any kind of skates that I should just completely stay away from? Any bad experiences or anything? Once I get some skates its off to lessons for me.

    Your feet will tell you that... Think "comfort first".
    Blades can always be replaced.
