Abstract: The study aimed to evaluate recently developed roller skating performance test. Groups of recreational and competitive skaters first self-assessed their roller skating skill and then repeated the test in four separate occasions. No significant changes in performance time were evident between any of four trials. The test had low mean within-individual variation and high inter-sessions correlation. In addition, it discriminated skating performances of competitive and recreational skaters. Besides, moderate correlations were recorded between skater’s self-rating and achieved test results. Finally, results suggest that evaluated test is reliable, valid and sufficiently sensitive to be applied in amateur roller skating practice.
