The Roller Skating Association (RSA) is a trade association that serves commercial (for-profit) skating center owner/operators. It also serves those involved in various facets of the roller related industry such as teachers, coaches, manufacturers, distributors and other elements of the family entertainment industry.
RSA provides to its members industry information, publications, purchasing discounts, national marketing programs, and an opportunity to attend educational seminars and an annual convention and trade show.
