The Roller Skating Association is thrilled to unveil its latest endeavor for October’s National Roller Skating Month – “Be a Roll Model” which has been designed to be used year-round to encourage MORE SKATING, LESS HATING!

This initiative for National Roller Skating Month is poised to revolutionize communities across the nation. The RSA is a prominent advocate for anti-bullying, mental health awareness, and the myriad health benefits of roller skating, which continues to pave the way for positive change within the industry.

The design, developed in collaboration with the pilot program Young Men United’s Major Sk8 Therapy Program in North Carolina, enables roller skating rinks to recognize and reward outstanding student role models within their local and national skating centers. Skating centers will have pledge forms, punch cards, and bracelets that reward students nationwide for being a roll model in their communities. In addition to fostering an inclusive and supportive skating environment, the program aligns seamlessly with the RSA’s commitment to addressing vital social issues.
