2006 C.O.R.A.
FITNESS/SPEED SKATING DEVELOPMENT

One of the missions of the California Outdoor Rollerskating Association has been to strongly raise awareness of the positive aspects outdoor skating can bring into the lives of youth and adults and to give people a fun, healthy outdoor skating experience they can enjoy. Over the years, we have been consistent in our efforts by promoting hundreds of skating events, races, competitions, parades, parties and much more to help make the San Francisco Bay Area a great skating city.

As we look forward to skating in 2006, C.O.R.A. stands solidly behind that same commitment. We also recognize there is a real need to expose people to the social and  physical benefits skating can bring into their lives. Obesity is an ever growing problem that can be measured by the waistlines of youth and adults alike. All across the age spectrum, people are getting fatter. Serious diseases like heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes are on the rise. We must come up with innovative ways to help combat these growing trends. We must find ways to get people out to work that body and live a healthier lifestyle.

Outdoor skating is a fantastic way to get a great workout while having a great time. The California Outdoor Rollerskating Association would like to invite you to join with us as we prepare for a fantastic season of skating races and adventures.  We would like to give youth and adults alike an opportunity to experience what a great sport and fun, healthy activity inline skating and roller skating can be. 

The C.O.R.A. Speed/Fitness Development Program is designed to introduce new   skaters to outdoor fitness and recreational skating and to provide a fitness challenge to other skaters looking to practice and train for inline races. The program will begin in the spring and will be built around the Dan Burger Points Race Series.

The Speed/Fitness Development Program is based on the Presidential Sports Award Program developed by the President’s Council on Physical Fitness & Sports. The challenge of the program is to make a commitment to physical fitness through active and regular participation in outdoor skating activities.

Earning the CORA SkateFit Award means that you have put in time and effort to meet the challenge of personal fitness through skating.  To earn the award a participant must at least skate minimum 50 hours; no more than 1 1/2 hours credited daily.

Participants can accumulate those hours through training sessions on Saturdays and Sundays in Golden Gate Park, on Wednesdays evenings in the Embarcadero and on Friday evenings on the San Francisco Friday Night Skate.

JOIN CORA NOW!!!!!  The program is free, but it's membership that makes the program possible.  The annual membership fee is $35.00 for adults and $20.00 for youth 17 and under.  This membership gives skaters discounts on skates, wheels, bearings and other skate equipment. It also gives skaters a discount on entry fees in CORA inline races for of 2006.
