It’s National Skating Month, So Lace Up Those Skates!

Written By: Riedell | January 10, 2013

It’s January! And that means it’s also National Skating Month. Sponsored by U.S. Figure Skating, National Skating Month allows skating facilities to increase awareness and participation of on-ice skating programs. Best of all, National Skating Month helps to attract new skaters and families to the wonderful world of ice skating! See what awesome promotional items USFSA is offering your rink during January.
