Welcome to the Skate Instructors Association!
Skate IA teaches and certifies skaters how to teach. We offer programs in-person and online, and an annual camp for the general skating public called CAMP Skate IA.
Skate IA is a membership organization providing: insurance, networking opportunities, marketing advice, continuing education and resources to our Skate Instructor members.
Skate IA is committed to building the skate community for both inline & quads and that means great, new or longtime events, supporting the various ways to skate like hockey, derby, slalom, skate park, artistic, speed. It also means promoting only quality products and supporting innovation. Thanks for your past membership and providing us with the means and support to do more and be more, each year.
