JOIN C.O.R.A. NOW

 
 

BE A REAL PART OF GROWING AND SPREADING THE JOY OF SKATING  

Membership has its' privileges.  It's also what makes the wheels turn to produce the events, parades and other great activities that has made the San Francisco Bay Area one of the most active skate venues in the nation for inline and roller skating. 

The mission of the California Outdoor Rollerskating Association is to strongly raise awareness of the positive aspects skating can bring into the lives of youth and adults and to give people a fun, healthy skating experience people 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 make the San Francisco Bay Area a great skating city.

We have also been consistent in our efforts to create “recreational asphalt” with our successful efforts that repaved Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park, the Healthy Saturdays Campaign that closes part of Kennedy Drive on Saturdays and now Sunday Streets San Francisco

C.O.R.A. has long been a proponent of the concept of "recreational asphalt". For 44 years skaters people have been coming to Kennedy Drive in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on Sundays when there are no cars.  The closed roads become a safe recreational paradise for runners, walkers, skaters, cyclists and others who are looking to escape the pressures of the fast paced city lifestyle and enjoy themselves in a lush, green sylvan environment. Join us on on nine (9) dates in 2010, as the California Outdoor Rollersports Association will join with other groups and organizations in San Francisco as we take that  concept out of the park and into the streets of San Francisco.

The California Outdoor Rollersports Association has been going through a metamorphosis. We are now a non profit corporation registered with the State of California and the Internal Revenue Service.  We are now ready to move forward and carrying out a plan to reinvigorate skating in the San Francisco area and California.

David Miles Jr. has officially stepped down as C.O.R.A. President.  The Board of Directors elected a new President, Chris Duderstadt. He has long been a strong advocate for skating and will be a great President. Lainie Monsef was elected as Vice President. Both will serve the skating community very well. I have not quit the organization. D. Miles will continue to serve as Executive Director of the organization. The direction of the nonprofit will be determined by the President and the Board of Directors. As Executive Director, Miles will carry out the tasks set forth by the Board.

C.O.R.A. is basically starting over with a new effort to develop new skaters. In order to do this, we need support from those of you that would like to be a partner with us as we move forward. We are putting together a new C.O.R.A. membership package. We will be able to serve you discounted prices on skates, wheels, bearings and other skate equipment. It is your membership in this organization and your support for this effort that will help bring more people both young and old into our community of skaters.
