Do you have a skating home? Any serious skater who is not currently affiliated with an inline or roller skating club or team, would love to get a skating affiliation for Christmas. Joining a skating club is a good way to connect with other skaters - even if you skate, train and compete as an individual. Team roller skating activities like hockey and speed skating have a combination of social, emotional and training benefits for skating members.
Find a team or club:
- Locate a speed skating team in the United States.
- Find a speed skating team in another part of the world.
- Locate a nearby rink or sports center that may have a roller sports club.
- Visit inline skating blogs and ask about teams, clubs and groups.
Networking with other skaters is another way to find a club or organized skating group. If you social skate with others who look professional or well trained, they may be current or former members of a club, team or other training group. They will be glad to give you some referrals.
