Roller Skating Association International


Super Skater is a program designed to recognize achievement at the beginner level.  Anyone of any age may take this basic skills exam.  No previous roller skating skills are required; there are no membership requirements.  At the roller skating instructor's discretion, either one or three judges may be used.  All judges must be at least 15 years of age.  RSA judge's commissions are not required, but individuals who are judging must have skating knowledge.  If three judges are used, a majority will determine if the skater has passed the requirements.  Upon completion of the Super Skater tests, fill out the Super Skater I and/or II form(s) and send with $3.00 per test to:
