Best Answer

Unfortunately most kids don't get enough exposure to the sport, and therefore don tlike it because they don't know about it. But if your wondering weather to out a child into the program, then i severely encourage you to. The sport is fun, and the people are nice, so come on out :)

Practice makes perfect. Once they have gained their balance on the ice, they are sure to be fine. Depending on the child the time it takes varies, some children will get on the ice and be fine straight away, whereas others will take some time to feel completely competent.
