I've really really wanted to get into roller hockey for quite a few years. Unfortunately other crap gets in the way, and I can't partake in the fun. I can honestly say that I've never played roller hockey in my life. It sucks, I know.
I've always wanted to play goalie. Whenever I've played some little rinky-dinky street/floor hockey game, that's where I'm at and I'm quite content with being there.
So, I need some help. Hopefully there's at least a small demand for goalies, so I won't have a hard time finding a team ONCE I become proficient enough to be on one... Anyways, how hard is it to become a decent roller goalie? How much time does it take to learn? I hope I can find some pick up games and whatnot to learn so I don't spend money in vain. Also, whats some good equipment to start out with? I've been studying goalie techniques for years, so I don't think I'll have too much of a problem learning them per say, but it's more of a matter of putting the stuff I've learned into action. Is it hard?
I'm currently in north-eastern PA, but by early summer '08 I should be moving to the Savannah, GA area.
Thanks a bunch for the help, I greatly appreciate it.
