The cost of ice prices.

Price is certainly a barrier. Hockey is not a cheap sport, however, when you say disadvantages, it all depends on why you are asking. Hockey is a fast paced sport which helps with excellent conditioning and durability, along with being a team sport, Hockey is notorious for breeding close knit groups of friends.

You can have contact and non-contact hockey, depending on your preference and level of play.
