We are a registered not-for-profit organization devoted to making recreational rollerskating happen in Ottawa, whatever the season.

Whatever your  age, style or level, our community group is as inclusive as can be. Novice roller skaters, seasoned dance skaters, couples or families out for a spin, derby players who simply need to relax on their wheels, all are welcome.

You can simply purchase a ticket on Eventbrite and drop in.  We offer quad rentals, but if you own your own quads or inlines you are welcome to wear them (except for some rare partner programs, but we’ll specify if that is the case.)

We are strictly volunteer-run.  If you’d like to volunteer we are always looking for friendly, helpful faces.  All proceeds go to running our program of activities year-round. We do not own a skating facility (yet!) but make use of a variety of large venues in the City.

What we do:

-Weekly social rollerskating : Simply want to smile and  roll? Join our Ottawa Quad Sessions. We meet year-round on Friday nights (mostly) for two hours of skating  (9-10:45 pm September-May, 8-10 pm June-August) at varying locations. We quad to tunes.

-Special events and theme skates: Need to party on wheels?  Throughout the year, we throw special themed sessions and roller parties, just for the fun of it. Keep checking our site. We also organize skating events with a variety of partners such as the City of Ottawa.

We made the news: check us out on CTV Morning Live.

  1. Hi there do you have an online schedule? Looking to bring 20 people but want the disco music theme do you have this option if so what day/time? Also do you rent four wheel roller skates or blades?


    • Check out our Eventbrite page for all our events. Each person needs to purchase their own ticket as the waiver is associated. The music usually has some disco, but also many other genres. We have quad skates to rent.The rentals can be added to your admission – just pick the correct size and be sure to book at least 24 hours before the event. If you have your own quads, or inlines you are welcome to wear those to our sessions.

  2. Hi there!
    Wondering if you can help me. I’m looking to get into dance skating. I have never done this before. I’m wanting to purchase a pair of candy girl skates. I noticed that Neon Skates is permanently closed and it said to contact your organization. Can u help me find a pair of these. I’m normally a 9.5 woman’s.

  3. Hi, just wondering if the quad skating is going ahead winter 2021? Are teenagers (14/15 year old) allowed. Also looking for recommendations on where to buy quad skates for a first time female teenager. Thanks

  4. Hi, my 13 and 15 yearling old daughters would like to skate indoors, is there a place on friday nights or saturdays for recreational rollerskating? In know everything is closed presently because of COVID but, usually is there a place and moment?

    • The city is offering skating at Jim Tubman Chev rink in the Canterbury neighbourhood right now. It is an outdoor covered rink.
      Our sessions usually run at Carleton U on Friday nights from 21-23:00 and so long as minors bring (and wear) a helmet and bring an adult they are welcome to join!

    • Minors are welcome at any session so long as they have helmets and a skating adult to accompany them. (assuming the event isn’t designated as 18+) We don’t offer any lessons, but you’ll find some great beginner and stretch content on YouTube!

  5. Where does do people meet for the outdoor skate? Is it still happening.
    I’m interested in joining.
    Thank you.

    • Hi! We don’t have any planned outdoor skates at the moment though I know CIB Ottawa is doing some ad hoc. If you want to roll, check out the parkways that the NCC has closed until Sept for a nice long stretch on the roadways. Have fun!

    • How can i join a skate friday nights? Are they happening regularly again?
      Will you have any outdoor events? Possibly at city hall pad?

  6. Hi there, do you guys offer lessons for beginner rollerskaters? I need to learn how to turn and stop lol

    • Sorry we don’t offer lessons, but Ottawa Roller Derby offers a crash course that teaches those skills, or check out something like Dirty School of Skating on YouTube for some good info to get moving (and stopping).

    • We don’t have any facilities of our own so we run sessions at venues we rent. Folks are welcome to join our existing events, but we don’t have group sales, or private events available.

  7. Wondering if there’s a schedule coming out soon as Covid restrictions begin to lift. My 11 year old got roller skates for Christmas and is so eager to go roller skating, she keeps showing me videos of 70s disco roller skating and asking where she can go to something like that 🤣

  8. Hello the ticket for April 30th event is sold out on eventbrite. Where else can I purchase 4 adult tickets or this event. thanks

    • Any time one of our events sells out we have a waiting list available. Add your name (via Eventbrite) and if tickets become available you will get an email with a link to purchase. Eventbrite is our only sales site – if you see tickets elsewhere it is a scam.

  9. Hi! Just came across your Instagram and I wanted to recommend perhaps having a drop in session at Ottawa city hall. (Where the rink of dreams is used in the winter)

    Also, are there any upcoming drop ins?
