Roller Skating

Roller Skating is a Special Olympics sport with many different facets. Athletes are given the option to compete in artistic events, speed events

 or roller hockey. In addition to the choice of sport, athletes may choose to use in-line or quad skates, depending on their strengths.



For artistic competition, men and women compete separately. The competition is further divided into four levels, each level progressively more difficult and requiring different elements. Speed events offer a variety of distances for all skill levels, as well as relay and slalom events.


Special Olympics offers individual skills competition to allow athletes to train and compete in basic roller skating skills. The development of these key skills is necessary prior to advancing to track and team events.


Special Olympics athletes can also participate in Unified Sports® relay and team competition. Unified Sports is a program that combines Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition.


As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped in competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender.
