What is Roller Skate Etiquette?

There are some basic rules, common to roller rinks, that help everyone stay safe:

  • Everyone skates the same direction
  • Slow skaters on the inside lane, fast skaters on the outside lane
  • The middle section is for dancing and tricks
  • Be aware of other skaters by shoulder checking when crossing the rink.
  • Indicate by putting your hand out
  • Don’t cut people off
  • Fall small – no grabbing other skaters
  • Texting and skating don’t mix
  • Food, drinks and shoes are not allowed on the skate surface at any time
What age is best to start roller skating?

Most kids have success starting at the kindergarten age (5+).

Can I walk on the rink surface to hold my small child’s hand?

No. The rink surface is for skaters only. If your child cannot skate on their own, consider bringing them to a lesson so they can learn to skate.
