Youth Sports Photography?

Hello All -

I'm learning photography and would like to learn some sports photography as I think it would be fun.

My question is - how do you get practice?  My wife and I don't have any children, but I've been involved in youth hockey in our previous state for quite some time.  I'd like to go to the local baseball fields and hockey arenas and work on some photography and shoot photos.

Are there any concerns in going to do this and do this for my own hobby and practice?  Maybe eventually I'd like to get into selling some of them to the teams and parents, but that would be a maybe and a long, long time down the road.

Are there any legal concerns in shooting minors or sporting participants in public locations or "public" buildings (such as hockey arenas) for my own practice?  I know selling becomes a bit different territory, but this would be for my own work and learning.

Thank you!
