NOTE: IN LATE JULY 2014, THIS WEBSITE WILL GO PERMANENTLY OFFLINE. OVER THE PAST YEAR, OUR FOCUS HAS SHIFTED TO THE BOOTS & BLADES FORUM FOR VARIOUS REASONS: 1) MUCH EASIER TO UPDATE; 2) IT'S A 'COMMUNITY' WHERE VISITORS CAN JOIN IN THE CONVERSATION; AND 3) IT COSTS ME NO MONEY, OTHER THAN A FEW INEXPENSIVE OPTIONS THAT I'VE CHOSEN TO PURCHASE. THE EXPENSE OF HOSTING THIS WEBSITE AND THE TIME INVOLVED IN UPDATING IT NO LONGER SERVE ANY PURPOSE.

PLEASE CLICK THE BUTTON BELOW TO ACCESS BOOTS & BLADES, AND BE SURE TO BOOKMARK IT - WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

Short Track Speedskating: It's like NASCAR on ice - without seatbelts…

Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to ROCKER U
(Now THAT was easy, wasn't it? And you didn't even have to write an essay…)

This site was developed BY fans FOR fans. Skaters, parents, coaches and officials are most welcome, and your insight is always appreciated, as are corrections to erroneous facts. We're learning together, and we're grateful for any help!

Take a tour around 'campus', enroll in some courses, take a Road Trip with the team - HAVE FUN, but don't forget to studyFinal Exams are just around the corner!

ROCKER U's Mission:

1) Educate new fans in the basics of short track speedskating and familiarize them with its top-tier and up-and-coming skaters.

2) At the Boots & Blades Forum, our goal is to create an environment where people can get acquainted, chat, ask questions, share information and learn about the sport.

3) Through The Bookstore and Rocker-U Sk8rSites, we hope to enable skaters who don't have their own websites to have a place of their own to cultivate new fans, market their fundraising merchandise, and as a reference for potential sponsors.

4) Facilitate direct donations to individual skaters through Rocker-U Sk8rSites and our sister-site, TheRockerFund.org.

5) Assist in trip planning for those who want to attend competitions. We are confident that after attending just one event - hearing the whisper of the blades, seeing the ice chips fly, feeling the chilly 'breeze' created as the pack blasts by at over 30mph - and after meeting the skaters, their wonderful families, and other fans - you WILL fall hopelessly in love with short track. Our sincere hope is that once you do, you will then want to give back to its amazing athletes with much-needed donations to help fund their training.
