US Roller Speed Skating (USRSS)
US Roller Speed Skating (USRSS) is a cohesive unit for Roller Speed Skating. Through the standardization of rules, coach certification, and official certification; USRSS plans on making a single hub for all US roller speed skaters to grow the sport, educate both speed and non-speed skaters about the sport, and to give all amateur roller speed skaters an even playing field to improve nationally.
US Roller Speed Skating (USRSS) is working with several other associations to standardize the rules and build certification programs that will promote fair racing and safe sport throughout. USRSS will be the central point to post schedules for all participating roller speed skating organizations so skaters and fans will be able to see what is happening in either their area or an area they may temporarily be located at.
As a membership based association, the opportunity will be for members to suggest and vote on rule changes. The support of members will help USRSS to grow the sport nationally and bring it back to a new and stronger level then in the past. Member feedback is also essential in understanding concerns and potential opportunities that exist. Having a cohesive unit like US Roller Speed Skating (USRSS), will be able to get a better snapshot of the sport in the US.
Our certification programs are put together by some of the best skaters, officials, and coaches in the sport. The certification process will include background checks to help protect our young players, and safe sport practices besides the technical sport information. Initially there will only be a basic certification level but as time progressives and the programs and association grows, you will begin to see more advance levels. Current certified individuals will be posted on our website so you can verify that they are certified and, eventually, at what level.
