Teach your kids to skate with Skateez

January 25, 2018 Family, Recreation & Sport

The Bentway is partnering with Skateez on a very special offer for visitors to The Bentway Skate Trail. Starting Friday, January 26 we are giving away one pair of Skateez – kids “training wheels” for skates – every weekend leading up to Family Day (February 19).

All you need to do to enter is to share a picture on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #BentwayMemories, tagging @thebentway and @skateezinc. The participant will receive an entry for the prize drawings. We will draw for the prizes each Sunday afternoon. It’s that easy!

Then on Family Day we will be offering a special first come first serve giveaway for the remaining pairs of Skateez.

Read the full rules and regulations.

Skateez has been designed to provide support for beginning skaters in the same way training wheels work on a bicycle. The arms are rigid enough to hold the skate vertical but also flexible enough to allow the skater to ‘edge’ the blade to propel forward. Traditional bobskates or other training devices only let beginning skaters to ‘walk’ on the ice. Skateez provides a platform for learning the basics of real skating motion. The design is intended to fit a multitude of skate styles and may require some minor adjustments when installing.

Let’s get skating!
