October has been National Roller Skating Month since 1983 when President Ronald
Reagan declared this month to remind families of the benefits of this fun past
time. While some may have forgotten about this sport, its important to raise
awareness about its safe physical and social perks for people of all ages and to
remind folks that fun activities are right around the corner at their local
roller skating center.
In a time where computers, video games,
smart phones and TV monopolize time for
most children and adults, as skaters we can
show people how they can get more physical
activity and work toward a healthy lifestyle by
adding roller sports into their regular activity
mix. Studies show that inline and roller
skating is equivalent to jogging in calories burned and fat reduction, and its
easier on the joints!
As Summer comes to an end, outdoor skaters can take advantage of this month to
make a transition to indoor skating for the Winter months. And for those who live
in year-round outdoor skating temperatures, don’t forget to think of your local
skating facility during rainy seasons and heat waves. There is always a safe
climate controlled rink not far away!
Roller skating rinks provide exercise,
entertainment, fun and competitive activities for
inline and quad skaters of all ages. National
Roller Skating Month is an opportunity to spread
skating love and awareness to potential skaters
and skate families to take a look at roller sports
by visiting a roller skating center. Here are a few
ways you can do your part to promote skating in your community:
