Roller skating is a great way for a child to see current friends and make new ones. Thus hitting the rink might be a great way for the child to work on their social skills besides providing health-related fitness benefits. A roller skating curriculum may spark interest in lifelong physical activity.
Roller skating increases the balancing skills and helps give a recreational activity which can be practiced without any need for a partner. Skating is ideally learnt at a tender age and hence it was introduced in the lower classes.
