Whether you’re shopping for the holidays, a birthday, or a “just because” gift for a child, you can’t go wrong with the gift of roller skates! Gifting a pair of roller skates is so much more than just the physical object. Learn why you should buy roller skates for your kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews—and why you just might want to treat yourself to skates, too!
Reasons to Buy Kids Roller Skates
There are so many reasons to buy your kids roller skates, but these are a few of the best. Read on to learn more from the skating pros at Lanham Skate Center!
For the ultimate gift, don’t just wrap up the skates. Instead, consider giving your child a pair of roller skates with a gift certificate or voucher to your local skating rink. Schedule a time to take them on a fun roller skating outing to try out their new skates or sign them up for skating lessons to help them learn how to use their gift.
At our Lanham skating rink, we offer beginner roller skating lessons taught by Certified USA Roller Sports Coaches and members of The Society of Roller Skating Teachers. Classes take place on Saturdays and Tuesdays, and students can choose to attend one or two sessions a week. If your child masters the beginner skating techniques and is excited to learn more, we also offer advanced roller skating lessons, so contact us for availability and other information.
One of the best parts of roller skating is hanging out at the skating rink with friends and family. Skating is not just a good workout, it’s also a fun social activity that keeps you interacting with others in the community. There are always fun skating events to attend, and here at Lanham Skate Center, we strive to maintain a family-friendly, inclusive environment. From school fundraisers to birthday parties to open skating sessions, your child is sure to make some great friends at the skating rink.
Roller skating is an excellent fitness activity. According to Team USA Roller Sports,
Roller skating provides aerobic, strength, and endurance benefits. Research shows that roller skating can provide an aerobic workout similar to running that improves cardiovascular health. Recreational skating also causes less stress to one’s joints than an activity like running. And, skating’s low-impact quality also allows people with joint injuries or chronic joint problems to enjoy a fun and thorough workout.
Skating in an indoor skating rink allows you to get a workout no matter the weather, and with great music and a fun atmosphere, it’s easy to see why roller skating is the most fun you can have working out!
