If you are a beginning skater, there are a few things that you need to know. If you are young, you probably think that you don't need to worry about safety because the worst thing that could happen to you would be that you fall. You need to read my comments below! If you are older, you probably realize that you need to be cautious at first, but still need to read some of my recommendations.

Roller skating is a year round sport. You are not limited to a particular season which means you can go out and practice some new moves, etc. whenever you want. But roller skating is a potentially dangerous sport. It is dangerous if you have not developed the expertise with a particular move and throw caution to the wind and go for it! There have been a lot of accidents with roller skating, but they are avoidable if you follow some simple rules. Here they are:
  1. If you are skating outside, be very careful skating downhill. This can be an exciting and challenging experience for a new skater, but if you have not developed the expertise in knowing how to stop or turn, etc., you could find yourself in a very dangerous situation. Develop the expertise and then go for it, but not before!
  2. Learn how to stop. This not only applies to downhill skating, but just regular skating outdoors and indoors. Before learning how to go fast on your skates, learn how to stop. By learning how to stop, I don't mean learning how to run into the wall at the skate rink. Accidents happen on the rink to individuals who fail to learn how to stop. Make sure that you skate has a toe stop. Learn how to use it or ask someone to teach you how to use it.
  3. Use protective gear. Many times a new skater does not want to invest in protective gear when they start roller skating. They think that they won't be going very fast and they won't get hurt. The fact is that many new skaters get hurt because they are not wearing protective gear. By protective gear I mean wearing a helmet (a must), knee pads, and elbow pads. By wearing these you will have protection when you fall or run into something. Don't fool yourself, because it will happen!
With these simple guidelines you can embark on your skating experience with confidence. Whether you are young or older, these rules are for your protection.
