WHAT IS THE RSO SERIES?
The Roller Sports Ontario Speed Points Series is an inline skating points series.
WHO TAKES PART?
Skaters of all ages and abilities participate in the events and races. The series offer a great way for families to actively spend the day in a traffic-free area. The series attracts people from all walks of life- who share one thing in common; love, passion, and enjoyment of inline skating as a way to help acheive health, foster friendships, and support communities and growth.
WHERE DO THE EVENTS AND RACES TAKE PLACE?
The events and races take place on asphalt tracks suited for inline skating. Some of the tracks used include school and community asphalt 400-meter tracks as well as roller speed skating 200-meter tracks.
The series features roller speed skating races ranging from short distance sprint events to longer distance events. Children and youth races are normally shorter that the distances for grown-ups and experienced skaters.
With relatively low entry fees, the points series is affordable for families, students, and athletes.
GROUPING- BY ABILITY
The grouping system and ranking system are some of thekey features of the points series. With a dynamic comminity of skaters in Ontario and beyond, the points series meets the needs of the local skating community by allowing skaters to compete with each other based on ability, and not age or gender.
FLEXIBLE RANKING SYSTEM
The ranking system allows for skaters to compete with others that are close in ability. It is flexible enough when considering that skaters will improve their fitness and abilities during the season. All skaters are ranked on one global list which is broken-down into age and gender groups at the end of the season and the skaters are recognized for their achievements.
The Roller Sports Ontario Speed Points Series was conceived by the Speed Committee of Roller Sports Ontario, the Governing Body for Roller Speed Skating in the Province of Ontario, Canada. The idea for the series was presented to the Speed Committee by Peter Doucet. After many hours of work by the Speed Committee, the final product- an outdoor and indoor race series- was unveiled in April of 2003.
