The power of inline skating at school

Teaching inline skating offers several benefits for both physical and mental development. As a brand, Rollerblade® helps with several initiatives including having tips and techniques on our site, a skate instructor locator and working with brand ambassadors and athletes that help student grow through skating. One example is Mike Mullen, a former halfpipe BMW champion, who started an academy with the vision that sport has the power to motivate young people.

Some of the benefits of inline skating includes:

  • Physical fitness: inline skating is a physical activity that engages various muscle groups. Skating improves balance, coordination and provides a fun and engaging way to stay active and develop physical fitness.


  • Confidence and self-esteem: Mastering a new skill boosts confidence and self-esteem. It provides a sense of accomplishment as you progress and overcome challenges. This experience of overcoming challenges and “bumps on the road” can carry over into other areas of their lives.


  • Social interaction: Inline skating promotes social interaction and teamwork. It offers opportunities for students to engage with peers, collaborate and support each other in the process and practice together.


  • New Skills: Inline skating is a recreational activity that students can enjoy throughout their lives. By introducing inline skating in school, students are exposed to a new activity that they can pursue independently or with friends and family outside of the school.


  • Mind and body connection: Inline skating requires focus, concentration and a connection between mind and body. Students use their body and learn to control their movements, adjust balance, and make split-second decisions that enhances their body and mind coordination.
