During National Roller Skating Month, we saw hundreds of new faces. We love watching beginner and advanced roller skaters do an activity that brings so much joy – roller skating! Fortunately, there are so many different things to do on roller skates. You’ll have to come to Skate World to try them out!
Check out our hours, then come skate with us.
National Roller Skating Month is coming to a close, but the fun doesn’t have to end! These are our favorite ways to skate all year.
What’s better than listening to music and dancing? Doing it on roller skates! Jam skating became popular in the 1990’s and is still wowing the nation today. When you jam skate, you incorporate your favorite dance moves, music, and skating all into one. Some people can even incorporate their gymnastic and breakdancing moves! (Fun fact: jam skating has even made appearances in music videos by Beyonce, Ciara, and Matchbox 20.)
Also known as inline racing, speed skating is a fast and exciting way to compete with friends. Try your best at this sport by doing laps around the Skate World rink as fast as possible. Maybe you can try to beat the current world record: 77.47 miles per hour. (However, Sandro Bovo was racing downhill when making this a world record in February 2016.)
If you love competing and roller skating, roller derby may be the perfect sport for you. It’s a contact sport where you skate laps around the track in hopes of out-lapping the other team. You may have seen this competitive sport in the 2009 movie, Whip It. Just like in the movie, friendships can be made and there is definitely fun to be had!
Drive on over to Skate World today to practice your skating! We look forward to seeing you.
