Took My Son Skating for 1st Time
Lots of threads about the finer details of the game. But I forgot how hard it is to skate if youâ€™ve never been skating before. The smile on his face is something Ill never forget. Only on ice for about 30-40 minutes and mostly held him while skating just trying to get him to stand up. He is 5 years old an wants to do it again. Ive played NCAA and a little in ECHL, but have to admit it took me a little bit to figure out how to actually explain how to skate. Its not that easy! Lucky we just focused on trying to stand up.
Then I just let him sit on the ice and play a little. The little things mean the most! Haha.
Anyway just wanted to share because this is where it starts. Ive got him signe up for a â€œlean to skateâ€ program at a local rink. He cant even stand up so not sure about that. I just want him to have fun and learn to skate.
