Enjoy 99 Days of Unlimited Skating During the Summer

Kids start looking forward to summer break on the first day of school, as it is nearly three full months of freedom. For parents, this long break can be challenging, especially for us in the South. It’s not uncommon for our temperatures to reach the triple digits, and combine that with the humidity, and you have a scenario that demands indoor activities, and here lies the challenge. How can you find daily activities for your kid without going way over your monthly budget? Skate Station has the answer. Our Sumter roller rink is fully air conditioned, so come cool off with us while still burning off the endless energy that kids possess. If you purchase one of our 99 days of summer unlimited skating pass, you’ll never have to pay an admission fee.

Unlimited Skating Summer Pass

As long as Skate Station is open to the public, you can use your pass for admission. This includes all you can eat pizza night, Friday night skate parties and even lock-ins, which there will be a total of four lock-ins during this time period.

Don’t spend this summer struggling to find ways to entertain your kids. Purchase one of our 99 days of summer passes and always have a fun, free option at your fingertips. We currently have them on sale, so you can pick one up the next time you are at Skate Station.

Partners in Education

As a part of the local business scene in Sumter, we know how important it is to give back to the community. After all, if it weren’t for your continued support over the years, we would not be here. For this reason, we have become Partners in Education with the local schools, and use this partnership for your benefit. It is this collaboration with the schools that we are even able to distribute these passes to you.

We are happy to work with any school looking for a business partner, so please contact us if your school did not receive these passes.

Building custom Riedell 911’s

If you’re tired of spending money on rental skates week after week, it may be time to invest in your own pair of roller skates. The great news is that you can’t find a better place for purchasing new skates than the pro shop at Skate Station, as we do have the reputation for being one of the largest skate dealers in the Southeast. Not only do we have an extensive selection of skates, but we can design and make custom skates to match your personal style.

Why choose custom skates? The main reason to go with custom skates is to get exactly what you want. The result is a pair of skates that you love so much, you get excited every time you put them on. These skates are uniquely yours and truly one-of-a-kind. Whether you are in the market for speed skates, figure skates or derby skates, we have you covered.

Need another reason to purchase custom skates at our pro shop? Well, we offer a special promotion for our customers. When you purchase any wheels, we’ll give you free bearings to go with them. This is a savings of up to $40!

We also want you to purchase a pair of custom skates with confidence. This is a long term investment, not something that you’ll need to be replacing every few months. In fact, if a problem arises with your skates, you can bring them to us to repair instead of having to buy new skates. Mr. Chris is the master mechanic of skates, and our motto is “If it’s a skate and it’s fixable, we can fix it.”

Don’t let price be a reason to stop you from purchasing the skates you want, since we offer layaway. For as little as $20 down, you can start any item for layaway and we’ll give you up to 90 days to pay it off.

Our pro shop is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., plus all weeknight and weekend public skating sessions. So, come visit Skate Station of Sumter to get your own pair of custom roller skates.
