This is a great sport for any age but especially children. Unlike other sports that puts extra pressure on your joints and muscles like cycling or running, roller skating gives you the exercise without the stress on your body. Also, it is very good aerobically to increase your fitness and make you more mentally alert.
Let's look at some of the reasons why roller skating should be part of the physical development of your child.
Maybe your child might be spending a lot of time in front of the T.V. or more likely on the computer playing video games. Getting on skates either at the rink or outside will give your child a fun way to move around and strengthen the legs and heart.
Teaching your child to roller skate, instills into your child a sense of balance. As a child gets older, there are a lot of sports that require balance. Bicycling, skate boarding, etc will be learned a lot easier if they have first learned to skate. But most importantly learning to skate early in the life of a child helps the child to increase their confidence and opens the possibilities for them to experiment with other sports and activities they might never have tried.
You can buy a very good pair of skates for under $100. If you get your child skates that can be used outside, there is no additional cost. Of course, if you use a rink you will have to pay a fee. But most rinks are very reasonably priced and can be a great family activity.
4. Solo activity
Skating does not require a crowd. A child who wants to roller skate and has wheels that can be used outside can simply put on his skates and go outside and have fun. Of course, this depends upon where you live. If your child does not have brothers or sisters near their age or does not have many friends in the neighborhood, skating can be a great outlet for this child.
5. Quick to learn
The best place to learn to roller skate is at a rink. Usually most children are able to be confident on their skates after just a couple of hours of practice. We would recommend, however, that the child have elbow, knee pads and a helmet to protect against falls (because there will be several of them when they are learning).
