    I would recommend finding some public skates before jumping right into pickup.

    I used to live in Richmond and here is some info.

    Roller:
    All American Skate and Sports Center, Richmond. Richard and Cynthia Kent. Rink (804) 233-7215; office, day: (804) 744-9636
    stay away from the other rinks unless you like playing on a wood floor with plastic nets.

    Ice:

    I've played at both Ice Rinks and they are about the same.

    Richmond has a decent amount of ice hockey. There are at least 5 ice pads including the one outdoor rink. Roller is def around but i dont know about pick up.

    One place:

    Cavalier Family Skating Ctr
    4902 Williamsburg Rd
    (804) 652-1816

    they have pick up for both youth and adult but no skate and shoot (stick time)

    PM me and I'll give you the email of a guy who organises 2 games of ice a week (friday in van and saturday in burnaby) and a game of roller in Langley either weekly or Bi-weekly. It's clean hockey with a good mix of guys playing at different levels and is organised very well. It's $15 for Ice and $12 for Roller with your choice of a beer or gatorade for after the game and is usually 2 hours (but you can usually stay on after since no one goes on after us).

    Edit: Oops, sorry, thought that said richmond, bc, not virgina.
