After a successful demonstration at the 1985 Special Olympics North Carolina (SONC) Leadership Conference, the first official roller skating competition was held at the 1986 Summer Games. Today, state-level roller skating competition takes place during Fall Tournament.
SONC offers roller skating speed events. There is something for all ability levels, from the 30 meter slalom to 1,000 meter race. SONC also offers two team relays in two- and four-person.
