of which ice sport children choose, that is hockey, ringette, figure
skating, or speed skating, they must all learn the same basic skills.

with a particular ice sport. A young person entering hockey, for example,
will be able to learn hockey skills and the rules of the game far more
effectively if they have already learned the basics of skating.
