Roller Skating Classes: Old School Fun for a New Generation

Posted on: August 9, 2019

Parents seeking a recreation opportunity for their kids will have a new option beginning this fall. Glen Ellyn Park District has teamed up with Revolution Skate Studio in Lombard to offer roller skating classes for ages 3-10. Roller skating has been a recreational activity enjoyed by people of all ages for over 250 years. Whether it’s indoors or outside, roller skating is a great pastime that anyone can learn and a terrific form of exercise.

Revolution’s nationally certified coaches will teach tiny Tot Roller Skating (ages 3-5) and Basic Roller Skating (ages 6-10) at their facility at 1300 S. Main Street, in Lombard. Throughout the programs, students will focus on balancing, stepping forward and backward, and learning tricks. Games and activities will give the kids opportunities to perfect their skills. Medals will be presented to students each time they learn eight new skills.

Skate rentals are included with the classes, and all skaters will receive a free t-shirt. Tiny Tot classes are $135 per child and $155 for the Basic Roller Skating.
