Why should you be aware of skate safety tips?
You don’t think much of it, but knowing about skate safety is crucial for having the best experience and minimizing accidents! Especially in a place where children are present, Skatetown TX believes it’s important to be prepared and aware of your surroundings. To help, we have narrowed your safety tips into categories.
- Do not chew gum or eat while skating. With the constant moving, you could risk the chance of choking!
- No drinks! In the chance your drink could spill on the rink, someone could easily slip and injure themselves.
- No smoking within the area. This is common courtesy, so take your smoke outside.
- Avoid alcohol. It’s hard enough to balance as it is; alcohol puts you at risk for injury, and others.
- Don’t play tag or throw items around the rink. Especially if heavy or sharp objects, the items could really hurt someone.
- Don’t lean on, trip or push others down. Unless you’re trying to help someone up, try to keep your hands to yourself. A lot of skaters aren’t experienced, and one wrong push could send them flying!
- Skate in the same direction as everyone else. It’s hard to dodge someone quickly if they are coming at you head on. Skating in the right direction will keep the flow moving and prevent frontal collisions.
- At Skatetown we take our dress code seriously! We strictly enforce no hats, low cut tops, midriff tops, swimsuits, low riding pants, boxers/underwear showing, revealing skirts and shorts, and drug related or explicit content on clothing.
- Wear thick socks with your skates! Unfortunately some may experience blisters or foot soreness without proper socks. We recommend a thick, dry fit pair.
