If they can walk, they can skate! The typical starting age for children is around their 1st birthday. We have noticed great improvements in balance, coordination, stamina, and confidence when starting children skating when they first start to walk. It all depends on the skater and the parents when they feel comfortable to start skating.

New Skate Requirements as of July 9th, 2023
MICRO AND MINI WHEELS
Due to the low clearance of mini (micro) wheels, all skates must pass the 2 quarters stacked test. We require this minimum clearance of skate trucks to insure our skating floor will not be damaged by scraping, scratching or gouging. To avoid issues at the door, test your clearance at home by placing two quarters stacked and make sure your truck can clear them. It is advised if you have these types of wheels, bring a bigger set to avoid issues.
TOE STOPS, BRAKES AND PLUGS
All quad skates must have toe stops or plugs if there is a spot of them. Likewise, all inline skates must have a brake if the inline has the spot for them. Toe stops, brakes and plugs will be checked upon enter to ensure proper equipment and ensure the part is not too worn. A worn toe stop, brake or plug can expose the screw/bolt which can damage the floor.
