It’s healthy for kids to learn to entertain themselves, but in a world of video games and computers, it’s all too easy for “quiet play” to harm kids’ development. Kids need to stay active and interact with other kids. Skate Zone is a proud partner of Kids Skate Free, a nationwide skating program that encourages kids to engage in healthy play.
Benefits of Roller-Skating
Roller-skating is more than just breezing through the rink to top 40’s tunes. It’s a wholesome, family-focused activity that keeps kids active and engaged. Skating increases muscular strength and provides a great cardiovascular workout, all with minimal impact on the joints. It provides kids with an exercise they actually enjoy, keeping them healthy without even realizing it! It also teaches them to focus, learn new skills, and make new friends. Kids and parents love the benefits of roller-skating. What other benefits are there?
- 1 hour of moderate skating burns between 330 and 600 calories an hour!
- Skating improves flexibility and endurance
- It’s easy to learn
- Skating helps kids build enthusiasm
- It helps families build a healthy lifestyle together
