Can you really put an age on rollerskating? At Skate Station of Sumter we say, "No way!" From childhood to old age, the world of roller skating is a great way to have fun and to stay healthy. Many people don't even start skating until they are well into adulthood! That’s why our Thursday night Skating Lessons are open to beginner and intermediate skaters, young and old. If you're an adult interested in learning how to roller skate or you simply haven't done in years, keep reading to find out why you should be roller skating every week! Benefits of Roller Skating: Burning Calories – Roller skating is an aerobic activity, meaning it can help you to burn calories and shed a few pounds. Like all exercises, the number of calories you burn depends on how long you actually skate and the intensity that you do so. Typically you can burn about 300-600 calories after skating a full hour. Joint Health – Believe it or not rollerskating actually provides similar benefits to running, BUT without many of the joint issues! Muscular Strength – If you're looking to strengthen and tone certain muscles in your lower body, skating is perfect for you! Some of the targeted muscle areas include the calves, shins, thighs, hamstrings, abdominal area, and lower back muscles. Heart Health – As you may know February is American Heart Month for the American Heart Association. As a cardiovascular exercise, rollerskating can strengthen the muscular structure of your heart, which improves its ability to pump blood more readily through the vascular system and can help in the prevention of heart disease.Are you convinced yet? We hope so, because we hope to see you at Skate Station in Sumter very soon! Join us for our Crazy Leprechaun Skate on Friday, March 13th from 7-11pm!

The facility was clean and the staff were extremely helpful and kind. My two sons ages 3 and 6 had a perfect first time at the skating rink.Justin - 5 stars 2013 WOW these are some friendly folks! We had a great time and I can't wait to bring my family back! Jordan - 5 stars 2007 Roller skating is targeted toward young teenagers, but I don't care. Occasionally, I like to skate here with my wife amongst the 12 year olds. Of the two Sumter skating rinks, this is the nice one. The owners moved here from Jacksonville, FL to operate the business, and they do a great job. The husband and wife team take an active role in running the business, with the husband leading skate races and competitions on the floor every couple of hours, with $1 prizes for the winners. The place is clean, packed with customers, and well-stocked with snacks & arcade games… Thank you again for your ongoing support everyone! We hope you join us at Skate Station in Sumter soon for some of our rolltastic skate events, like our Camo Lock-In on Friday, March 6th or our Crazy Leprechaun Skate Session on Friday, March 13th! We also have a great facility for birthday parties, fundraising events and group gatherings. Please contact Skate Station today for more information.
