Protective gear - wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, and a helmet must be worn.

All participants must wear wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, and a helmet. This equipment must be purchased; as far as I know, skates and protective gear can no longer be rented in Sacramento, except for use in skating rinks.

You can try skating equipment and inline skates in a skating rink at a reasonable price before you buy your own equipment.

When you buy skates make sure they fit.  It is good to try them out in the store to make sure they are comfortable.  The wheels should roll easily.  I like The Sports Authority and Big 5. For online shopping, I like www.inlinewarehouse.com/

Class Lesson price: (per student) $25.
