Girl that wants to play hockey in Junior year?
I am a sophmore. I played lacrosse for a few years but I just feel like the people on the team are so toxic. I want to switch sports. I have come down to either hockey or tennis. If I play tennis, my friend is on the team. I played hockey and tennis in middle school for a year but I haven't been on the ice. I am leaning more towards hockey though and I just need help on knowing more about the sports in high school before making a decision.

Basically unrealistic if not a strong skater in all aspects AND know the game inside out.
Try playing lacrosse in a wheelchair, while others execute the game in cleats full speed.

If you haven't been on the ice then this is likely a non-starter. If you can't skate, then you can't play. Not just forward skating. Backwards, side to side, stopping/starting, crossovers, etc. You're going up against players who likely have been playing the game for 5-7 years. Never mind all the other skill sets you need (passing, shooting, stickhandling, being able to do these things at a high rate of speed).
Economically, hockey is expensive. Equipment (including skates) can easily run over $1000, and sticks can easily run $100 or more (and break).
