Consider these helpful tips before teaching your child how to roller skate:

  1. Wear the appropriate gear. Make sure to dress your child appropriately with a helmet, wrist guard, and knee and elbow pads. Safety gear will soften the landing if she falls and protect important parts of her body.
  2. Learn the basics. Instruct your little one to keep her knees bent and to lean slightly forward. She should then start walking in her skates to practice her balance. Afterward, while holding her hand, encourage her to roll. When she feels confident rolling, teach her to step forward in a diagonal direction and propel herself forward.
  3. Practice, practice, and practice some more. No one masters any activity on the first try. Encourage your little one to keep practicing even if she takes some falls. (A helpful tip: Allow her to skate indoors on carpet so falls won’t hurt as much!) With your encouragement, her confidence will grow.
  4. Take advantage of our lessons. While it’s true that practice makes perfect, it’s also true that practice makes permanent. So, take advantage of our skate lessons. When your daughter has roller skating lessons, she will learn how to skate correctly and confidently!
