My philosophy since 1989 has been to teach you everything you need to know to be able to skate with comfort after the first class. I don't believe in the "lifetime lesson plan" (unless you want to just give the instructor your hard earned money forever).

RollAmerica has both group and private lessons for beginner to advanced, adults and children. The two hour group classes primarily take place in Manhattan, on weekends as well as in the evenings during the mid-week.

Private lessons are scheduled separately by calling 212-744-4444.


RollAmerica and Kids on Wheels InLine Skating School started rolling in 1989. As New York’s first inline skate school, we offered open classes to adults and children. When the demand grew, we expanded to private and public schools. Now, nearly 2 decades later, we are happily teaching students of all ages at nearly 50 schools and summer camps in the tri-state area. The program offers progressive classes from beginner to advanced, as well as a terrific hockey program.

Since the students enjoyed our coaches and the design of the program so much, the Kids Action Sports School was a natural progression. The weekly after school classes offers sport specific and multi-sport programs including, soccer, baseball, tennis and football to name a few.
