I started playing in high school, my coaches all played on our local club team. There advice was come and watch and run with the club teams on there practice nights. It was a great learning experience. The other point they made was come to games always bring your kit with you. What happens they will run short of guys for the B or C sides and less experienced guys get invited to play never say no just play.
My first summer took from playing high school to club to provincial rep teams. It was just time with the ball in play that got it going.
