America’s favorite pastime, roller skating, is a way to show your individuality in the form of movement. Are you a jam skater? Shuffle skater? Speed Skater? What are your moves? Roller Skating gives kids the opportunity to socialize, get active, and have fun in a safe environment.

 

The RSA wants people to know that roller skating is one of the few activities that provides a complete aerobic workout for over 640 of the body’s muscles – especially the heart. Families, kids, and teens are encouraged to dedicate themselves to achieving an active lifestyle. To find your nearest skating rink, please go to www.rollerskating.org and click on Locator.
