Note: The Official BSA Skating Merit Badge is awarded for demonstrated knowledge and proficiency with ice, roller (quad), or inline skating.  (The ice skating option will not be offered through this program at a roller skate center.)  Scouts will be instructed on how to perform specific skills as outlined at http://www.boyscouttrail.com/boy-scouts/meritbadges/skating.asp.

While all participants will be provided instruction and opportunity to practice, please be advised that Scouts with no previous skating experience may not be able to learn and demonstrate all the performance skill requirements in this one day event.  Any scouts who go home with an incomplete blue card can be signed off at a later date by an on-site Certified Skating Merit Badge Counselor when they are able to demonstrate the required proficiency.
