gotta love twerking in the crease

Now thats how you decorate a wall!
anon response: I understand completely. It’s not a matter of being able to skate, or anything like that, for me, it’s the fear that no matter how hard you work, I won’t be good enough and it’ll ruin the sport for me. It’s easy for those who play to say “just buy some skates and go out there!” because they don’t understand the fear of letting not only themselves, but their teammates down as well. So yeah, I get it, because letting a team down hurts.
anon response: i don’t think a lot of the people replying to the learning to play confession understand what the confessor is saying. it’s not a matter of being too old or it being too late, it’s a matter of letting a team down. it fucking blows to know that you’re holding back your team with your inexperience, or that your teammates whisper behind your back that you shouldn’t even be playing despite your ethic. that can drag someone down if they are just learning and discourage them from trying any further.
confession submitter response: it was rather discouraging to see all the responses that essentially told me to suck it up and try hockey out. I want to try to play, but being on a team that may not be so forgiving of my lack of skills is the problem. I’m not a teenager, I don’t have many options here for teams, especially being a girl. I would buy skates and learn if I knew I would be with a group of people who encouraged and accepted that I am only learning still.
anon response: About the learning to play confession - it helps if you start skating by yourself first and get your footing a little. And have a little faith in the hockey community. When I started at age 20, everyone was incredibly understanding and encouraging
