Teaching your child to learn how to roller skate is a milestone in every parent’s life, but it’s especially an important milestone for every child as roller skating is an activity that they’ll never forget how to do. It’s like riding a bike! Once you know how to roller skate, you’ve got it for life. At Skate Moore, we love being a part of this huge milestone in every roller skaters life. That’s why we’ve taken the time to put together a short guide of things to keep in mind when teaching your kiddo the ins and outs of roller skating. Check it out!
Safety first – Just like riding a bike, learning to master roller skating takes a few tries and trials. This means that your kiddo may take a plunge to the ground at one point in time. It’s important to be ready for those events. A helmet, elbow, wrist guards and knee pads will help protect your little one’s hands and knees if they take a tumble. Using these safety precautions will make it easier for them to dust themselves off and get back up again.
Practice at a rink – What better why to practice roller skating than to visit Skate Moore, lace up your skates and get out on the floor!? Visiting the roller rink at least once a week will help with establishing your roller skating skills.
Assume the correct posture – Place your feet shoulder width apart, bend your knees, and squat. Lower your backside toward the ground and lean slightly forward in a comfortable squatting position. When you’re roller skating, balance is key, and this stance will prevent you from toppling over.
