  • Values & Branding
    0.1 • VALUES Liberté • Accessibilité • Innovation • Olympisme This subsection (0.3) covers our values, choices, branding, and overall brand identity. Admittedly, we took some liberties (Libertés). We interwove our values with our branding decisions for all Users (You) using our site in English. Roller Louisiane's Company and Club values are Liberté (Freedom), Accessibilité (Accessibility), Innovation, and Olympisme (Olympism), not to be confused with Olympianism. , which refers to the worship of the Olympian gods. SOLUTIONS FOR OUR NEXT 100 YEARS We assume you're like us: We love roller skating and roller sports—so, we assume your affinity for skating and lead by example. As a Club, Roller Louisiane is a club you represent when we compete locally, regionally, nationally, and online. We believe we belong to an experience locally and regionally just as we belong to the global community of hobbyists, enthusiasts, and athletes. By doing so, we hope to make new knowledge accessible, inspire new knowledge, award and curate your curiosity—all to know your name is on the wall in the building of our collective innovation. 0.2 • BRANDING As a matter of branding and our founding values, the Site commonly and consciously uses English cognates found in other site languages. Club-related Services typically use French & Italian.'s Challenges, Online Programs, Online Lessons, and ProShop-related Products & Services prioritize Italian cognates as a tribute to Italy's bootmakers, immense contributions to roller sports over the decades. For a ProShop example, see Figure 0.2.1 below. Figure 0.2.1 ProShop Preliminary Filters: Categorie, Collezioni, Componenti, Soluzioni The preliminary filters display additional product categories for more filtering and groupings associated with each ProShop product, or "Item." When you see Categorie, think categories; Collezioni for collections (Roll-Line®); Componenti for general components like boots, frames (plates), wheels, and bearings; and Soluzioni for solutions—meaning, Complete Skate Packages ("CSPs") and Bearing-In-Wheels Combinations ("Combos"), among other turnkey Soluzioni we have in the works. Items like CSPs and Combos also follow this approach, but without preference for Italian, instead, these use names from French, German, Spanish, and Italian. LOGO Our logo combines Circle Figures (top) and Loop Figures (bottom)—commonly called Figures and Loops or in some regions Circles and Loops. It's meant to stoke up memories from practice, honor our foundations, remember the basics, and in Louisiana's #LâchePas* spirit, renew our commitment to ourselves (You), to Roller Sports (Us), and Olympism. *Lâche Pas = Lit: Don't give in/up; Never surrender.

  • OVERVIEW: Classes
    Bilingual Skating Classes or ("Classes") Public Page: Account Page: Classes are offered for $15/class at two facilities in Louisiana and Classes are managed by Roller Louisiane's coaches and apprentices. FACILITIES (2) Our Thursday classes resume in August 2023 in Bâton-Rouge, Louisiane. Our Saturday classes also resume in August 2023 in Lafayette, Louisiane. Fun Nation in Lafayette, LA 🏆 4518 West Congress Street, Lafayette, LA Skate Galaxy in Bâton-Rouge, LA 🏆 12828 Jefferson Hwy, Bâton-Rouge, LA LANGUAGES (5) Classes, like Club, are always held in a multilingual environment and are available in French, English, Italian, German, and Spanish.
  • CURRICULUM: Class Skills
    Please use the following resource as a guide to the skills you will learn in our class program:
  • Do I have to come every week?
    No, Bilingual Skating Classes are à la carte. If you miss one, pick up next week. Either way, your progress is charted and we'll pick up with your progress wherever you left off.
  • What about skates?
    If you don't have skates, rentals are included. If you have inlines, outdoor skates, or bubble gums, rentals are suggested and needed to demonstrate all skills (needed for graduation).
  • Age restrictions? Children?
    Roller skating clubs are built on classes and both are built with generations of skaters. We're used to yielding to the young (and young at heart), avoiding figure and loop lessons, passing on the outside, babies wearing skates who can't walk yet, deciding to jump and continue to spin despite the wails of a crying baby in the snack bar. It is important to note that all distractions like loud music, will be low; Session lighting (ceiling) and video games will be turned off during classes and during private practice (precedes classes). While we have mostly adults and pre-teens in our classes and club, younger skaters join us all the time for classes. Skaters ages 5+ are best suited for group environments. The oldest taught was 82. The youngest athlete is 11. The most experienced is 58. Please help us keep people, especially younger siblings, off the skating surface during practice and classes, as they can become gravely injured or worse.
  • What comes after classes?
    Some skaters come to classes to learn to skate. Some come to learn more advanced skills, such as backwards or turns. Some come as an activity for themselves and/or their kids to do in their non-English language (French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese) or they're visiting Lafayette/Bâton-Rouge and joining us for the same reason. Some come because they believe learning to skate is as much a rite of passage as learning to ride a bike. Prior to graduation, you'll know. Some skaters come to classes and one day they fall in love with it. Some already loved it. Skating classes are a sampling of Roller Sports, particularly a survey of the foundations of roller sports and roller figure skating. Nearly all club members, except Patrick Doyle, are former Bilingual Skating Class graduates. When you graduate, you will participate in a ceremony where we recognize your commitment and development, during which you will be confirmed a club graduate or class graduate. ABOUT OUR CLUB All membre-athlètes (MAs) of Roller Louisiane are MAs of USA Roller Sports. Most compete, so do not. All club members are required to register with USA Roller Sports and complete SafeSport training if required by age (18+). All club members wear proper practice attire and coach-approved, athlete-level appropriate equipment for all practices/training (non-competitive) and all travel or competition (local and beyond). Here's an example of the equipment available in Le Dép (our online pro-shop) February 1, 2023.
  • Overview
    Introduction The term Club is generally used to refer to Roller Louisiane and particularly our training programs or paths, private practices, and our Membre-Athlètes (MAs). Roller Louisiane (LA-011A) is an official roller sports club registered with the US's National Governing Body (NGB), USA Roller Sports (USARS), the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC), World Skate, and the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Specializations & Disciplines Roller Louisiane specializes in roller figure skating, also known at the international level as Artistic, which is one of a dozen disciplines under our International Governing Body (IGB): World Skate. As such, our club, coach(es), apprentices, consultants, parents, guardians, and athletes (all MAs), be they minors or adults, embrace, practice, exemplify, and promote Olympism and the Olympic Charter, while meeting all requirements set forth by our NGBs and IGBs—including but not limited to SafeSport. Paths Paths help coaches personalize our approach(es) toward training and other MAs/athletes not in our club (partnering purposes) know the MA's level of commitment, goals, and intent. Please see the subsection below on Paths for more information.
  • Our Languages + Terms & Vocabulary You Should Know
    Languages Through our athletes and head coach, Brian Clary, we make Classes and roller sports (Club) available in French, Italian, German, Spanish, and English. Monolingual anglophones are the minority at Roller Louisiane—Most of our MAs are bilingual in French and English, thanks to the incredible work of Louisiana's French Immersion programs made possible by our state's bilingual legislators and government, particularly Louisiana's Francophone and Créolophone affairs division: CODOFIL. #LâchePas #ViveLaLouisiane Learn More • (Trailer) • View Full Documentary on YouTube Terms & Vocabulary You Should Know Skating has multiple lexicons, rich with vocabulary—our technical manual is over 100 pages long—where synonyms run rampant, true to their nature, varies by generational shifts, geography, and level of experience, among others. *Galerie • Lexicon • Source: Figure Skating aka Artistic Officially speaking, USA Roller Sports terminology for our specialization/sport is Figure Skating, though you'll also regularly see Roller Figure Skating — especially on branding and other resources. Both terms are often chopped up when speaking with one another colloquially (US-English) and vary to include other terms like Figure, Art Skating, and Art. World Skate's terminology for Roller Figure Skating is Artistic—one of 12 roller sports—and nomenclature (naming conventions, for each discipline will vary to accommodate international audiences. Roller Figure Skating in other languages: • Italian: il pattinaggio artistico • French: le patinage artistique à roulettes or le roller artistique • German: der Rollkunstlauf • Spanish: el patinaje artístico sobre ruedas
  • Our Disciplines + Clips & Links
    Introduction Our coaches train athletes in all artistic disciplines—from figures & loops, solo and team dance, to freestyle and pairs, as well as quartet and show. You can learn more about the various disciplines and subdisciplines with USARS at and international or World Skate disciplines at Sport: Roller Figure Skating (USARS) or Artistic (WorldSkate) Disciplines: Figures, Loops, Dance, Freestyle, Pairs, Groups, Show Circle Figures Colloquially known as Figures, Circle Figures is one of roller sports' oldest disciplines and are performed on 6m circles. Check it out: Loops The smaller cousin of Figures, the even called Loops uses 2m circles, with or without tracing the loop (crown) of the Loop Circle/Figure. Check it out: Solo Dance There are several forms and layers to getting a complete education in dance: compulsories, original dance ("OD"), and freedance. Example 1: Solo Dance Compulsories Here's an 2nd example of a freedance by #TeamUSA's Nicole Leonard, now Nicole Fiore, in Portimão, Portugal, competing in Solo Dance when it came onto the world scene—as an official world-level event. Nicole continues today via her YouTube channel (90k subscribers!): @ThatNicoleFiore. Team Dance Pedro Walgode and Anna Walgode (Portugal) Asunción, Paraguay (2022) Freeskating (Freestyle) Also known colloquially as Singles the jumps and spins clearly show technical superiority over ice skating's approach, time and time again. The old adage holds true: It's twice as nice without the ice. Here is our world champion, Rebecca Tarlazzi (Italy) in Buenos Aires's Olympic Park, in 2022. Note: This video has sound, but due to the crowd's intense cheering, is muted in the beginning and end. Brava! #Italia Pairs Get ready for a treat folks, here's Rebecca again—this time, winning her gold medal in Pairs with her partner, Luca Lucaroni. This 2022 program was hailed as the best program ever skated, though in our opinion, Venerucci and Palazzi-Rossi's long program in Massachusetts (2000) is truly superior. Opinion aside, this is not to be missed. Following this program, Rebecca and Luca were also awarded citizenship in Argentina to attract talent as coaches when they're ready. The King (re) and Queen (regina) of Pairs: Patrick Venerucci, Beatrice Palazzi-Rossi Quartet Colloquially and historically known as Fours (in the US), Quartet is one of the newest disciplines on the world scene. Check it out: Show Argentina's prowess as a world power is evident in Millenium and its multi-decade reign as world champions. This is one of the best programs in this discipline's history as skated by their hometown heroes in Buenos Aires, Argentina (2022).
  • Paths
    Introduction Roller Louisiane's Membre-Athlètes (MAs) may choose from three paths in our Club program. All MAs must meet our Club's Standard Requirements and continue their learning through group and private lessons with our coach(es). We allow our MAs to change/switch their paths to meet their yearly goals and life circumstances. CMA • Competitive MAs ​Competitive MAs train, test, and compete; CMAs are of all ages and came to us as class graduates or "current" athletes who transfer to our club. CMAs train regularly on weeknights and Saturday mornings—whenever we hold private practices (see: Calendar). CMAs train, test, and compete in local, regional, national, and when eligible: international competitions. TMA • Training MAs Training MAs train and test; TMAs approach their journey through roller sports as seriously as CMAs without competing. However, without experience in competition, TMAs are not eligible for our apprenticeship program and in our club, TMAs are not allowed to participate in partner events such as pairs (2 athletes), team dance (2 athletes), quartet (4 athletes), and show (multiple athletes and large groups). However, TMAs may decide to serve as consultants to athletes who are coming up and preparing for testing centers that TMAs have already passed, provided the TMA maintains a current status with our NGBs and IGBs. JMAs • Junior MAs Junior MAs train and test; JMAs are ages 5-9 and class graduates who—for any number of reasons—need to take a slower, less demanding approach to roller sports and are therefore taking their training as seriously as one may approach seasonal tee-ball, baseball, dance, and gymnastics. JMAs are required to train and test but do not train for regionals (Memorial Day weekend) and Nationals (2nd half of July) each year. After graduating from our class program, JMAs learn advanced skills appropriate for shows and exhibitions.
  • Onboarding & Requirements
    Introduction Roller skating is an activity, a hobby, for all ages—since the 1760s. Roller Sports build off of your love for skating into a career as an athlete and someday: coach, judge, and/or official. Onboarding helps you kick off your journey with us. When you know, you know. When you join our club (Roller Louisiane, or LA-011A), you will have to fulfill requirements to move beyond the Présaison (Preseason) phase of training and development. If you feel you may miss one of the deadlines below, please contact our head coach—Brian Clary—at your earliest convenience by contacting Roller Louisiane via chat. Club requirements or Requirements help coaches, officers, and existing athletes set expectations for you—and/or your prospective athletes—as well as communicate standards, and most importantly deliver the results with which we are entrusted by our Membre-Athlètes (MAs) and their families. Before You Start The general public cannot simply join our club. For most, you have to start with classes; therefore, for students, the coach will discuss options on a student-by-student basis with each student/parent prior to graduation. We've never needed it but we do reserve the right to deny membership to our club. Step 0 • Onboarding: How are you coming to us? Our club members (Membre-Athlètes, or MAs) join us through a variety of origin stories. The most common ways are grouped as (G1) Graduates: Former students graduating from our Bilingual Skating Classes program; (G2) joining us as a returning, usually adult, athlete of USACRS, now USA Roller Sports; (G3) Experimenté.es: joining us with experience doing other roller sports disciplines—the most common being Roller Derby; (G4) less common but has happened and can always happen: Changing your club affiliation with USARS, thereby defecting from your current club and joining Roller Louisiane. • Group 1: Graduates* • Group 2:* • Group 3: Experimenté.es* • Group 4:** *G1, G2, G3: Club invitation issued by coach at graduation **G4: Transfer Form Step 1: USARS Membership (Yearly: September 1 - August 31) How to Register USARS Membership Portal: Sport:80 Login URL: See Also: Breakdown & Fees • Membership • Benefits & Discounts • SafeSport* Instructions 1.0 • Log in or create an account • Use USARS's Sport:80 page and your personal email to log in 2.0 • Add Your Athletes and Check-Out • Use the USARS Tips page for help • Discipline: Figure • Club ID: LA-011A • USARS Membership Support: • USARS Phone Support (National Office): 402-483-7551 *SafeSport training is one requirement of all adult MAs (18+) who register with USA Roller Sports (USARS). SafeSport is a mandate by US Congress and required of coaches, officials, judges, and athletes by both USAS and the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC). Parents/Guardians of minors who are registering as athletes are not required to take SafeSport training. Minors are not required to take SafeSport training. Step 2 • Club Membership (Monthly) Club Membership, Athlete Membership, or simply Membership is required of each Membre-Athlète (MA) of Roller Louisiane. Membership is a subscription that auto-bills monthly. Manage your memberships from your My Memberships account page. Your Membership includes perks and comes with the following exclusions: Private Practice Membership covers private practice at our Lafayette Facility (Fun Nation, Lafayette, or LAF). Private practice does not include instruction. To book a Leçon (private lesson) via our Leçons page or Guided Warm-Up Held the first 30 minutes of each private practice in Lafayette. See our Challenges page for Présaison (Preseason) At-Home Challenges, which [especially] prepare Year-1 MAs for their first skating year. Parents are expected to enroll and assist Y1 MAs in our At-Home Challenges and reference our FAQ page's Testing category to understand practice structure, get tips, and help guide our youngest, especially when the MA is not in a Leçon (private lesson). Shadowing & QA Shadowing is observing, guiding, and preventing bad habits; Coaches will always observe and participate in private practice. MAs and their family are always welcome to ask questions but are kindly reminded to be courteous by saving questions (before/after) Leçons. Weekly Public Session Public Sessions are public skating hours. Each MA may choose one public session at Fun Nation each week—Tuesday or Thursday, 6-8 pm—and is admitted free of charge. Exclusions (1) Private Practice: MAs who also practice at our Bâton-Rouge Facility (Skate Galaxy, Bâton-Rouge, or BR) are still responsible for paying floor fees for private practice each time they use the BR facility (Thursdays for now) for private practice. See also: Calendar; (2) Guided Warm-Up is not included in BR due to time constraints; (3) Public Sessions: Not valid for any public at Skate Galaxy—however, your private practice floor fee ($8) covers admission to Skate Galaxy's 7-9 pm Thursday evening session. Note: the 4th Thursday public session is reserved as adults only, therefore any MA who is a minor is kindly asked to exit the BR Facility by 7:15 PM. (4) Other exclusions include general instruction (Leçons) during private practice, which is booked online via the following page: Private lessons. At this time, Membership does not cover any costs related to testing or competitions. Step 3: ProShop Equipment & Attire Expectations 99.9% of the population who joins a club, does so without having a clue about what proper equipment for training really is. So, you're not alone. However, our club's ProShop is seeking to change that. Variables Proper training equipment is individualized to a more specific degree and its resale value is therefore much higher than the junk we see on the market today. Equipment choices will vary by the MA and household. For MAs, common factors include skill level, age, events (Ex: obbligatorio, danza, libero), as well as boot sizing (measurements), life stage (still growing or not), skating surface, and body weight. For the household, each pair of skates is an investment in the athletic and professional development of their current career in roller sports. Suggestions Our club is made up of MAs representing all major audiences of athletes—youth, teens, and adults—and the following are complete skate packages (CSPs) provided as suggestions. This part can be difficult and even confusing—so, when you get to this step, if you have any questions, please contact Brian via chat (RL Messagerie) in the lower-right corner of this page. OBBLIGATORIO Obbligatario (Italian) means mandatory and in roller figure skating, Obbligatorio refers to the discipline of School Figures, aka Compulsory Figures, or simply Figures (plural), which at a high level encompasses the study of geometry and training, testing, and ranking through Form and Carriage, demonstrating and mastering two (2) types of Figures: Cerchi (Circle Figures) and Boccole (Loop Figures). Fun fact: Our club logo uses both Cerchi (pron: chair-key) and Boccole (pron: BO-co-lay). • Prepubescent Youth (Ages 5-10): Sole • Teens, Adults (11+): Specchio • Adult TMAs or CMAs doing Cerchi (Circle Figures) only: Padua DANZA Danza (Italian) means dance and encompasses American, Domestic, International, Solo, Couples/Team (Coppia), Precision, Quartet, Show, and related disciplines. • Prepubscent Youth Solo & Coppia: Coco* • Starter for Teens, Solo & Coppia: Hans • Adults, Experienced Solo & Coppia: Andrea *This CSP (Coco) comes standard with 57mm freestyle wheels (Combo Pro); Combo Danza uses 61mm ICE wheels, made especially for dance, and recommended for dance training, testing, and competition (sold separately from Coco). LIBERO Libero means free and in roller figure skating refers to "free skating" (jumps, spins, footwork) which is also called singles or freestyle in some contexts. Libero refers to one (1) athlete, whereas Coppia artistico refers to pairs (2 athletes), where lifting a partner, landing throws, among other skills requires more boot support • Youth: Coco • Teens and Adults; Libero: Beppe • Michelangelo • Teens and Adults; Libero and Coppia artistico: Rimbaud, Hermione • Adults and Elite; Libero and Coppia artistico: Leonardo, Merlin
  • Private Practice & Visitors
    Private Practice ("PP") are special training hours held several times each week at Fun Nation in Lafayette. Please see our Calendar page (/calendar) for more information. These times are provided for training, testing, and private lessons only. Athletes who do not have a private lesson scheduled are encouraged to come as often as we hold private practice but no learning services (Group or Private Lessons) will be rendered to athletes beyond warm-up. Warm-up is always the first 30 minutes of any scheduled private practice. Families with non-athletes (children) must review our policy to avoid misunderstandings and set the expectations thereof for a safe, courteous, and enjoyable environment. AUDIENCE Amateur and professional athletes in roller figure skating. POLICIES Please familiarize yourself with the environment needed for a successful practice. This policy is in place to prevent misunderstandings, serious injury, and yes, even death.
  • Rules: USARS & World Skate
    Before you continue, you should know the difference between Rules & Requirements: Rules vs Requirements Rules are more comprehensive than requirements. You should know, in terms of comparison, when you read Requirements, think Yearly Requirements. Yearly Requirements These govern us: They are the what and why of what we're doing because they tell us the requirements for regionals and nationals. Rules | USA Roller Sports • USARS is the US's National Governing Body (NGB) of Roller Sports and is recognized as such by the US Olympic Committee (USOC), World Skate (WS), and the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Our NGB's Rule Books, are filed under Figure Skating Rules; USARS's term Figure Skating varies from that of World Skate (Artistic) and there are three Rule Books: Youth, Adult, and Elite. How-To: USARS • Start on USARS's Home page: • Click on the site's menu icon; then Governance, then Official Rules & Bylaws • From the Official Rules & Bylaws page: choose Figure Skating Rules • Next, choose Figure Skating Rules • Last, use USARS's Figure Skating Rules page for all updates and all rule books by discipline WORLD SKATE • World Skate is the International Governing Body (IGB) of roller sports that works on behalf of all National Federations or National Governing Bodies (NGBs), including USARS. How-To: WORLD SKATE Rule Books = "Regulations" • From's Home Page, click to choose Artistic page from the horizontal menu • Next, hover on or click on About and a new menu appears. • Choose Regulations from the new options: Commissions, Regulations, and Bulletins • Rule Books: View all Regulations for 2023 on World Skate's Artistic Regulations page • Last, click on New Figures to navigate to the page with the list of figures Source: Discipline (Artistic): Path: site map or homepage / artistic / about / regulations KNOWLEDGE FOR ALL For World Skate (WS) the term Regulations is used for Rule Book(s), or Rules. Artistic is used over Roller Figure Skating, or Figure. In Figures (shortened form of School Figures) we practice, test, and compete on two types of figure circles. Colloquially, the large Circle Figures (6m) may be referred to as Circles or Figures, while the smaller Loop Figures (2m) are simply Loops. Unlike in our logo (below), neither can ever overlap, their arrangement (front, back, side, middle) and positioning (angles, orientation) vary greatly from one competition to the next. This is due to each location/rink having varying floor dimensions.
  • Rules: ARS
    American Roller Sports • American Roller Sports, or ARS is an organization that hosts competitions in roller sports. ARS is not a National Governing Body (NGB) of roller sports and is not recognized by the US Olympic Committee (USOC), World Skate (WS), or the International Olympic Committee (IOC). ARS is the initialism for the organization; AARS refers to the division managing Artistic Skating under ARS and is used as the initialism for this division's activities, rules, and requirements. How-To: View AARS's Rule Book • Start on ARS's home page: • Choose a discipline; For our needs, choose Artistic Skating. • From ARS's Artistic Skating page, choose VIEW THE RULEBOOK. Rule Book vs Requirements Use the GIF below or the following links for both Rules & Requirements. In terms of comparison, ARS's Rule Book is the most comprehensive and helpful. When you read Requirements, think Yearly Requirements. 2023 Yearly Requirements • Youth: Youth Figures & Loops • Youth Dance • Adults: Adult Figures & Loops • Adult Dance

  • Overview: Testing, Tests & Test Centers
    Prove (pron: proh-veh), or Testing, is a training phase and requirement of all MAs of Roller Louisiane. credit: Introduction Roller Skating Association International (RSA, RSAI) Testing, or Tests, refer to RSA Roller Skating Achievement Tests, originally called the RSROA Proficiency Tests, and were established in 1939 to provide incentives for skaters to increase their skating skills without the pressure of competition. Tests offer skaters attainable goals through progressive training. Winning a test award is something of which to be proud and encourages skaters to advance further in developing their roller skating skills. Each discipline requires a series of Tests for which the skater can earn pins for every level accomplished. After all pins in the series have been earned, the skater may take a final Test for a Gold Medal. The final Gold Medal in each category is an Olympic-style medallion engraved with the skater’s name and the year in which the Test was passed. The medals are finely crafted and strung on a ribbon which can be worn with pride by any skater. There is a separate sequence of tests for each of the skating categories. Circle Figures Loop Figures American Solo Dance American Team Dance International Solo Dance International Team Dance Freestyle Skating In-Line Freestyle Skating Roller Hockey Quad Speed Skating In-line Speed Skating The Role of Tests for Roller Louisiane As a club, proper equipment is a Présaison (Preseason) requirement for all of Roller Louisiane's Membre-Athlètes (MAs). Assuming all Présaison requirements are met, Testing is a vital part of all training phases and therefore applies equally to all MAs, regardless of their chosen Path: Junior MA (JMA), Training MA (TMA), and Competitive MAs (CMAs). Variables (1) The availability of a certified judge(s) will affect official testing centers, including dates, but it will not affect our training schedule nor Testing's/Tests' level of importance, as a club requirement for all MAs. (2) The pace of training using Testing/Tests may vary by MA's chosen path and may include other variables such as level of commitment, goals, and life stage. — FAQ — Who can take an Achievement Test? RSA Roller Skating Achievement Tests may be taken by anyone without regard to their status as a recreational skater, amateur skater, professional instructor, rink operator, or official. There are no membership requirements or restrictions. Skaters need not be members of the Roller Skating Associations, the United States Amateur Roller Sports (USARS), or any other national organization, local group, or club. The USARS has authorized that Achievement Tests may be skated by an amateur with another amateur or professional without violating the Rules of Amateur Status. An Achievement Test Center does not require a USARS sanction. There are no age restrictions for taking these tests. Where can you take an RSA Achievement test? Achievement Tests may be skated only at RSA member roller skating centers unless advance written permission is granted by the RSA President or Executive Director and the SRSTA Chair to conduct an Achievement Test at another site. All skater test forms must be signed by an RSA member Judge (except for the Super Skater class tests). This is to verify the technical aspects of the test are skated. Forms should be verified and submitted by the Achievement Test Center Director along with fees collected. How to arrange to take an Achievement Test In most cases, Achievement Tests are given at a specially organized test center. The skating center operator, teacher, coach, or judges panel chairman will establish a time for the test center. This person, known as the Test Center Director, will make the necessary arrangements which include scheduling the tests, contacting and confirming all of the judges and officials, preparing the test forms and applications, collecting the appropriate fees from each skater, and sending the original applications and necessary forms to the RSA National Office within 10 days of the test center. All the necessary applications and forms are available from the RSA National Office upon request. Please note that the test center is held through the courtesy of the rink operator. Please show every consideration in arranging the test center by beginning and ending on time. Skaters who have successfully completed their tests will be awarded Achievement Test pins. The pins are sent in care of the skater's home rink (the rink where they took their classes or lessons) or to the rink where the test center was conducted. Pass vs Fail Should a skater fail a test the fees are forfeited; and, the full test fee must be paid again to re-skate the test. A skater who fails a test must wait at least 30 days before retaking the test except for the Gold Medal tests. A skater who fails a Gold Medal Test is not required to wait 30 days to retake that test, but the re-skate cannot be taken at the same Gold Medal test center.
