Roller skating is one of the best ways to spend quality time with friends and family, but what if you’ve never skated before? No problem. We offer skating lessons to any one who is interested in learning to skate! Here are a few of the best tips from our instructors for beginner skaters.
- Before moving forward, master standing still. It may seem basic but once you have mastered your stance, you’ll be all set when it comes time to get rolling. On carpet, try standing with your feet set wide apart and your arms out. This will help you feel controlled and balanced. Try to keep a slight bend in your knees, too.
- Walk before you roll. Once you feel confident standing still and stopping, take small steps around the rink until you feel confident enough to start gliding and eventually, rolling!
- If you feel like you might fall, try not to flail your arms, this will cause you to fall! Keep your knees bent, and your arms out in order to keep your balance when you think might fall down.
