Roller Skating Safety

Roller-skating is a safe, healthy sport when safe skating guidelines are followed.

  • One of the most important things to remember is to always skate safely.
  • Be aware of other skaters and objects that may be in your path.
  • When skating outside, always wear a helmet, kneepads, elbow pads and wrist guards.
  • Safety gear is optional when skating inside a rink because risk of injury is reduced due in part to the skating center floor being smooth and well maintained and because safety rules are followed by skaters.
  • Many skating centers have skate shops that can examine your skates for safety!
  • If you need help learning to skate, ask your parents to help you find out what types of skating classes are offered by the skating
