I know I did. It also makes you keep your hands out in front. Problem is I fear that the stick and puck sessions will be a bit dangerous for a kid that can't skate well. I'd like him to be a bit more sure footed and competent. If it was just the two of us I'd not hesitate to go stick and puck, but there will be others out there cruising and we'll need to stay out of their way. Focusing on the puck he could very well get blindsided by some bigger people or their puck. I'll need to ask a couple people about what the stick and puck sessions are like there next time we go. I did go get the skates sharpened today ;-) Play It Again sharpens them for $5.00 and also has pretty affordable kids' hockey gear. Saw a pair of breezers that looked like they would fit him for $15.00. I may go get some next payday. I've been able to assemble most of the rest of the basic gear trolling thrift stores over the past year. Shin guards, socks, elbows, shoulders, gloves, helmet with cage all in a bag ready to go. Got a set of breezers too but they are way too big for him. They were tagged as a youth medium, used, but look like they would actually fit me better hahaha. If I can get him something his actual size for fifteen or twenty I'll do that and take the other ones for myself.
