Advice on skating and playing hockey

Recommended Posts

Instructor and I both duffed it hard at hockey tonight. I'm gonna be stiff as a board tomorrow morning.

D’oh! I just wiped out hard at free skate. Landed on the same hip but decided to include my shoulder into the fun. I’ve had it surgically repaired so I don’t to be banging myself around like this. I’m starting a new project Monday so I need to chill the F out on the crazy. And the stupid.

I’m obviously not a very stable genius.

Just bumping to see if anyone on here plays beer league in Buffalo? I'm looking for a league for the winter in addition to playing outdoors at East Aurora.

Bump. 

Been seeing in quite a few threads lately talk about playing hockey and thought I’d find this thread in case some didn’t know it existed.

Anyone living around NYC who is interested in getting into the hockey scene is free to pick my brain. Happy to lend a hand.

I realized that I was enjoying playing hockey less and less, and it was mostly (totally?) because I just couldn't see anymore. I haven't played in a year because of it and it sux. I also can't wear contacts.

Do any of you wear glasses when you play? If so, what kind? I really need to get some, and I don't care how ridiculous they look as long as they stay on and I can see.

Wearing contacts as a goalie improved my game immensely. Tried to wear glasses but contacts were just the right way to go. Glasses fogged, got sweat droplets on them. I also needed the widest viewing range possible. Might be different for you

I need them for far and close. They say that they put one for each in each eye and that your brain figures it out. Nope. It just made so I was angry trying to see at any distance,. Plus, you need the depth perception for sports. I need progressive sports goggles.

I'd guess cycling glasses may work, unless there are hockey helmet friendly glasses available.

All I needed was one level of improvement so I guess that's why it worked out for me. Didn't realize I was having trouble tracking pucks until I was just waving at them going by.

I gotta imagine there's prescription sporting glasses you can look into.

You call them swimming goggles, but we all know you wear them to the office daily.

Are Rec Specs still a thing? I remember my brother wearing them in the early 90's and me making fun of him, then him beating my ass. Repeat as necessary.
