February is National Skating Month. Sponsored by U.S. Figure Skating, the month-long celebration (which began in January) encourages skating facilities to increase awareness and participation with ice-skating programs.

Ice-skating offers an opportunity to enjoy a fun and relaxing time while participating in healthy exercise. As with every sport, it is important to be aware of safety and to learn how to minimize the risk of injury, which accompanies this activity, so the experience will be one of positive fun and fitness.
