As a fashionable sport, more and more children play roller skating. Generally speaking, when children learn roller skating for the first time, they should start from the shallow to the deep.
However, since roller skating is a safety-oriented project, when children learn roller skating, they must pay attention to self-protection awareness. Parents should help children wear roller skating protective gear, such as knee pads, wrist pads and helmets, etc., which can reduce the risk of children. injury rate.
Before I do that, I need to remind you that kids need a good pair of beginner roller skates, not a low-quality product.
What should children pay attention to in roller skating?
- Children should do a “warm-up” exercise before roller skating. In addition to sliding lightly and slowly, pulling the ligaments and moving the hips, knees, and ankles is essential for at least 5 to 10 minutes.
- When children play roller skating, they will inevitably fall, so parents must remind their children to protect their bodies. Knee pads are the most important part of the protective gear. Whether it is a beginner or a roller skating master, the knee is the part with the highest probability of landing and the most vulnerable part when falling; the helmet is also very important. In case of a fall, the head is the most in need of protection part. In many western countries, roller skating without protective gear is punished.
- Choose a safe venue, do not play roller skating in places with many pedestrians in the past, and the ground with uneven potholes, slopes, and water is not suitable for roller skating.
- Although complex movements look good, they are not suitable for beginners. Only under the guidance of professional teachers, who have mastered the essentials of movements, can try to do some difficult movements.
