At What Age Can Kids Learn to Roller Skate?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

kids roller skatingRoller skating is a timeless activity that never goes out of style. Many people have wonderful skating memories from childhood, so it only makes sense that they would want to pass it on to their kids! Here at our Lewisville skating rink we love providing a fun, affordable family outing that can be enjoyed by kids, teens, and adults. So how old should your child be before you introduce him or her to roller skating?

Theoretically, a child can learn to roller skate as young as two or three years old, but it depends largely on your child. Most kids have the ability and interest to start skating around the age of four or five. However, kids eight years old and younger should still have adult supervision at all times.

Tips for teaching your child to skate

  • Make sure your child has the coordination to stand on one foot for a few seconds at a time and to skip.
  • Start out by holding your child’s hand or holding your child up by the armpits while you follow behind.
  • Better yet, rent a skate mate. Our skate trainers lend your child a bit of stability while they learn the basics of skating and become more comfortable with the balancing and maneuvering.
  • We also offer roller skating lessons at our North Texas skating rink, and we even have a small skating area for little skaters and anyone who needs some practice space to get the basics down.

If you are interested in teaching your child to skate and are looking for a fun, family-friendly atmosphere, visit InterSkate today!

Dallas Halloween skating eventLooking for a unique Halloween event near Dallas? Don’t miss our Halloween Skate coming up on Saturday, October 26th!

Get ready for a night of ghoulish fun with something for everyone. This Halloween skating party will feature a pie eating contest, a yucky drinking contest, tricks and treats, and of course lots of roller skating fun. But don’t worry, we know that no Halloween party is complete without costumes- that’s why we’re holding an epic costume contest with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners!

We know our skaters will dress to impress, and we can’t wait to see your creative costumes. Just remember to wear something that is safe to wear while skating. Need some help dreaming up the perfect costume? Check out these 10 last-minute costume ideas or these DIY Halloween costumes, and follow these costume safety tips for skating:

  • Avoid masks or other costume elements that impede your vision. You don’t want to end up crashing into other skaters.
  • Dress comfortably. Skating requires a good range of motion, so a restrictive costume will just slow you down and impede your fun.
  • Don’t wear anything too wide or long. It’s easy to accidentally clip passerby with giant wings, or trip on your train/tail/etc.
