About USA Roller Sports

www.USARollerSports.org



USA Roller Sports (USARS) is recognized by WorldSkate and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) as the National Governing Body of competitive roller sports in the United States.


DISCIPLINES

Member Athletes, Coaches, and Officials

Member Athletes is a given—but, USARS also accepts other non-competing members, such as but not limited to non-competing members, coaches, and officials. Makes sense. What about our parents, recreation, jam, and skateboarding/aggressive inline cousins? Y'all're included, too. In fact, it's one of the reasons I came back to skating. I have always believed clubs should be multidisciplinary.


Another reason: WorldSkate = more disciplines, more opportunities. Explore WorldSkate.


Back to USARS and clubs: when I was growing up, National Capital Dance & Figure Club was a mega club in multiple cities and states (DC, Maryland, Virginia). My club, our club, will build on this legacy and work together. Roller Louisiane is registered as a figure (artistic) club with USARS but we aim to be a multidiscipline, multilingual, multi-city, multi-state club. Its DNA will always be a reflection of our skaters and their will.


In its bylaws, USARS acknowledges the following disciplines: artistic, speed, roller derby, and hockey discipline categories.


However, Its membership application for individual members includes the following categories. Roller Louisiane is Fun Nation's USA Roller Sports Club. While Roller Louisiane
