There is no need to worry about rain, heat, or humidity because our rink will allow you and your guests to stay cool and dry.Skate Factory Birthday Parties

This includes admission and skate rental, a choice of pizza, hot dog, or chicken nuggets, popcorn, soft drinks, game tokens, and birthday party invitations.

More Fun at Skate Factory with Arcade Games!

When you are at Skate Factory and you’ve skated so much that you feel like your legs might just give out, take a break in our arcade!

Whether you win or lose doesn’t necessarily matter because you’ll be winning with the time you have spent with family and friends.Arcade Games at Skate Factory

Learning to Skate

Skating ClassesDo you love to skate? Are you looking for a fun family activity? Perhaps you are looking for a way to keep you and your little ones healthy and in shape while having fun. Those may be reasons to get your little one out on the skating floor with you at Skate Factory!

We offer skating classes for skaters that are just beginning and for those that are skating at a more advanced level. Our beginner skaters will learn basic skating skills such as starting, stopping, backwards skating, and turning. Our more advanced skaters will build on those basic skills with crossovers, different stopping methods, and advanced turns.

Skating classes are on Saturday mornings from 9:30 am – 10:00 am, and your child can learn to skate using inline skates or quad skates. Classes are just $45 for four sessions and include admission to the 10:00 am – 12:30 pm skating session.Skate Mates

For your convenience, Skate Mates are available for our new skaters. Rentals are available during most of our sessions. In addition to using a Skate Mate, we have found an article on teaching young ones to skate with helpful tips. In particular, we thought it was good advice to allow parents to skate behind their child and hold them under the armpits to help support them.

If you are interested in skating classes for your child, or looking for a fun activity to keep your family in shape, make plans to join us this Saturday at Skate Factory in Vero Beach! Don’t forget to follow us on Google +, Facebook, and Twitter!

School Group and Community Fundraisers

cooltext1527433769Today’s economy often means that schools and organizations are left with less dollars in their budget. That is why Skate Factory of Vero Beach is happy to help your school, school group, non-profit organization, church group, or other community cause as a partner in fundraising. We have a great venue for you to hold your fundraising event in Vero Beach. We highlighted the importance of planning, event type, and location in our 3 Tips for Planning a Successful Fundraiser. After looking closer at what has brought success to our fundraisng partners, we wanted to share a few more key areas to focus in on as you and your group plan your attack for making fundraising as successful as possible.

Event Sponsors

With six months of advance notice, as suggested in our 3 Tips, you and your group will allow for plenty of time to get sponsors on board with your project and support your fundraisng initiatives. Sponsors are helpful in cutting or covering any costs that my be involved up front. They are also great in providing funds to reach your ultimate goal. Think about what sponsors may be able to help your group and also benefit from the public acknowledgement of helping your group’s cause.

Freebies

It is true, people love free stuff. Any giveaways that you can offer to attendees can be a bonus. Perhaps this can be covered as a sponsor endorsement or as part of the price of admission to your event. Whether prizes, t-shirts, or skating event accessories, freebie giveaways may make your event that much more exciting. Glow sticks are always a fun giveawy with roller skating and something that’s easy to get a sponsor on board in helping to provide.

Not only to people love freebie giveaways, but they also love food. Skate Factory has plenty of great choices available from our snack bar. Your attendees can cool down from the laps they’ve skated with a refreshing fountain drink or slushee, and our pizza, hot dogs, and nachos always make for tasty treats. Contact us to help you consider food options for your fundraising event.

People

The most important element of your fundraiser is the people that will be involved. Not only do you need participants, but you will need plenty of volunteers to help you pull of your event and make it a success. Will you have someone greeting guests at the door and directing them? What about selling tickets in advance? Who will be in chart of collecting prizes or suppies? Volunteers are essential in helping to lighten the load required in organizing a successful event.

A New Tradition

Easter Sunday SkateWhen you think about Easter, what traditions do you think about? Many people associate Easter Egg hunts, the Easter Bunny, Easter baskets, and jellybeans with their Easter traditions. At Skate Factory in Vero Beach, we think about skating all the time! This means that it is only natural for us to open up our rink and offer an opportunity for a new tradition for your family. Why not add roller skating to your family traditions and join us for an afternoon of skating on Easter Sunday?

Admission is free for up to five people with our coupon on Easter Sunday! Skate rental is extra. This is a great way to help encourage physical exercise for your family. We think this is a great way to help work off the mashed potatoes and ham that you might have for a traditional easter dinner. It may even help to work off that chocolate bunny since roller skating burns about 330 calories (for a 143 pound individual) after about an hour of moderate skating.

Make sure that you mark your calendars for Easter Sunday on Sunday, April 20, 2014 for our 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm skate! We want to help you and your family make new traditions and celebrate time together on this Easter Sunday.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + for other news, updates, and special events that will be taking place at Skate Factory.

3 Tips for Planning a Successful Fundraiser

Fundraising is something that nearly every organization needs to partake of in order to meet some sort of financial goal. It has been said that in fundraising, you have to have a plan and a place to land! We have a few tips that we would love to share with you, inspired by Constant Contact, for helping plan a successful fundraiser. We would also love to help make your event a success by offering up our Vero Beach, Florida roller skating rink as a great place to land for your event!Five Teen Girls 3

1. Plan in advance

It is recommended that you plan your fundraising event at least six months in advance. This will allow for plenty of time to get the word out for your event, book your event venue, gather prizes and supplies, and plan all of the other details.

2. Decide what type of event

It is important that in your planning, you carefully consider what type of event you would like to hold. We have seen many successful events in our roller skating rink that include lots of fun! Fun is the theme as all participants get involved. After all, once participants arrive at Skate Factory, who can resist lacing up a pair of skates and taking a few laps around the rink? Are you looking for additional sources of income during your event? Consider a 50/50 drawing while at our rink or a silent auction. These options will help raise additional funds and allow your guests to get more involved!

3. Location is key

All realtors know their number one selling point is location, location, location! This is also true of fundraisers! At Skate Factory, we are proud to say that we offer a top notch fundraising location that will insure a successful fundraiser, rain or shine! There is no worry about a cloudy or rainy day raining on your parade (or fundraising goals) here!

Contact us to book your next fundraising event for your school, church, or organization, in Vero Beach today! We’d love to help make your event a success and see your participants smiling!
