Re: Hockey Tips
A few tips off the top of my head. IHC readers who are better players than me (most of 'em) will have more helpful ideas:
1. Keep skating. The more you skate, the faster you'll become.
2. Practice and play as many games as you can. As you gain experience, you will better be able to anticipate where the puck is going to go. Although I'm a lot slower than many other players, I can often get to pucks I might not otherwise get because I've put myself in the position to get them.
3. Be aggressive. Many times you won't get to a puck because you'll think to yourself, "That player is so much faster than I am." However, even the fastest players have the puck hop over their sticks from time to time, get caught in their skates, flub a pass, etc. If you think you won't be able to get to a loose puck, you're probably right. If you think you CAN get to one, you might just get it.
Good luck! Welcome to our great sport, and to Inline Hockey Central.
