Camp Skate IA

CAMP Skate IA 2019 in LA, California is for all adults! And for all skaters! And this year we are featuring ICP Instructors. 

Camp Skate IA (the three day event) is an annual camp offered to skaters at all levels (except brand new beginners.) You don't have to be an instructor, or want to be an instructor to attend this camp. It is designed for skaters who want to expand what is possible on skates. It is designed for the skater who is looking to improve certain skills and is interested in trying out a variety of additional types of skating: from basic to advanced moves and discipline specific such as hockey, artistic, slalom, trail, race, derby, skate park, skate-to-ski, tricks, games and more. The schedule will take shape in July and be updated as traveling instructors confirm their schedules. It is subject to change.  We offer the camp on the east and west coasts, alternating each year--this year is is on the west coast in Los Angeles. The Host Hotel is is the Courtyard Marriott at Torrance/Pales Verde 2633 Sepulveda Blvd, and room prices are $149 for two queen beds and $139 for a king. Our room block is only for 10 rooms so order them up now! Use this link for our room block or call them directly using CAMP SkateIA for the room block code: 310-533-8000.  Rooms need to be booked by July 18th. About Kids. The only kids allowed at this camp are those who are accompanied by their parents and at least one parent is in attendance all day. We cannot be responsible for those under 18 years of age.

ICP (Inline Certification Program) Instructors are joining us at this camp. ICP is the  sister program that exists internationally outside of North America. ICP and SkateIA both offer certification programs to skaters.
