The Washington Area Roadskaters (WAR) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote safe and enjoyable in-line skating in the Washington, D.C. area. One of the oldest in-line skate clubs on the east coast, WAR was founded in 1987 and has had thousands of men and women join its ranks.

WAR is also a social organization where many strong and lasting friendships are formed. Our members have very diverse career, social, and educational backgrounds. However, we all share a passion for in-line skating. If you are new to the area, are seeking a new form of exercise, or are simply looking to meet new and interesting people, we encourage you to try one of our group skates, meet us, and see D.C. in a whole new way.

We encourage all people interested in Washington Area Roadskaters to check out our website at www.skatedc.org and subscribe to our skate email list for additional information about the skate club.
