Tips for Family Roller Skating

  • Prepare for a workout!
  • Wood floors are easier to manage than cement floors for beginners and parents back on skates for the first time in forever.
  • Saturday or Sunday afternoons are the best times for young families. There will typically be smaller crowds, which will give your budding skater more room to practice their skills.
  • If your kids are young, they may want to hold your hands for stability and you will have to bend over to help them.
  • Some roller rinks have walkers available to help your young skaters and your back.
  • Many rinks can tighten the wheels on skates so that they don’t roll as fast. This is a great option for young kids just learning because it will help keep them from falling so much.
