This summer is the perfect time to join one of our clubs at Orbit Skate Center in Palatine, IL! Each skater has their own personality and interest when it comes to the type of skating they enjoy so we have made sure to offer a little something for everyone! If you enjoy speed skating, jam skating or roller derby, we welcome all skaters to join in on the community clubs here at Orbit Skate.
In today’s post, we have included a bit more information about each of our clubs:
- Orbit Speed Club: A club for skaters of all ages that love skating fast on regular roller skates. Beginners are welcome and encouraged. You must be able to skate forwards. There is no fee to join the club, just attend the Saturday Class at 9:30am and bring a helmet. Use our skates or yours.
- Team Rainbo: Inline outdoor marathon speed team. New members are welcome. These skaters wear 5 wheel inline skates with form fitted boots. They travel the country together to races and social activities. Practices are indoors in the winter months at Orbit and outdoors Spring – Fall. The team has members of all ages and has been at Orbit for over a decade.
- Orbit Skate Center Parade Crew: This is a group of about 100 skaters that participate in our 4th of July parades each year. We get together the month prior to the parades and set up the music, routines and each skater gets a custom shirt along with using our outdoor wheels on their skates. Inquire at the office if you are interested in participating.
- Roller Derby: We do not have any derby classes running, this time of year we are busy with school parties! Please check back soon or sign up for our email notices and we’ll let you know when one is coming up.
