Up to 150 skaters and coaches from around the U.S and Canada are about to get serious at Eastlake Skate Center this weekend with the best trainers this country, and the world, have to offer. Hosted exclusively by rink owner, Trace Hansen of Eastlake Skating Center, Hansen is a firm believer that, "athletes should be exposed to international trends and techniques that can give them the edge they need."

The illustrious line-up of trainers, alongside Moretti and Casado, will be former World and National US Champions, Anna Carrier-Barnett, Dezera Salas and Patricia Jacques, offering expertise in all aspects of artistic roller skating over the four-day event. 

The camp caters to all skaters from beginner levels to elite, and includes 2015 Pan American Games silver medalist andNational Champion for the World Class Men's Singles for the USA, John Burchfield, who has his sights set on a Top 5 finish at the 2016 World Championships in Italy. "Its an amazing opportunity for the youngsters to get access to such a high caliber trainer like Moretti, and the camp will be something they remember for years to come," says Hansen.  In 2014, Hansen ran the SK8CAMP USA for the first time and it was such an overnight success that it has become an even bigger and better event in 2015, placing Warsaw, Indiana on the map in the world of roller figure skating in the United States. The camp is sanctioned by USA Roller Sports, the International Olympic Committee recognized National Governing Body for all of roller skating.
