|After a successful demonstration at the 1985 Special Olympics North Carolina (SONC) Leadership Conference, roller skating made its first official competition appearance at the 1986 Summer Games in Charlotte. Today Roller Skating calls the Fall Tournament home.
SONC offers both artistic roller skating and speed events. In artistic roller skating, athletes may choose from solo dance, free style singles, and school figures (similar to skills in figure skating). Speed events include events 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.
SONC Fall Tournament is held in High Point the first weekend in November.
