More Roller Skating Facts

We are on the last few weeks of the National Roller Skating Month! Here are some more cool facts!

 

  • First official U.S. Amateur Speed Skating Championship races held April 2-4, 1937 at the Arena Gardens rink in Detroit, Michigan.
  • In the summer of 1866, the NYRSA leased the fashionable resort hotel, the Atlantic House, in Newport, Rhode Island, and converted the dining room into a skating area. This was the first roller skating rink open to the public in the United States.
  • Roller Skating is recognized by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and recommended by the American Heart Association as aerobic fitness. Studies show that roller skating provides a complete aerobic workout and involves all of the body’s muscles, especially the heart.
