Located in Chicago, Team Rainbo is one the country’s oldest and most successful inline speedskating clubs.
What makes us different is how we measure success – by participation, not performance. We focus on the average person who enjoys skating. The value of each member is measured by how many races they attend more than how they finish. Anybody can become a member. All that’s required is a desire to skate.
Team Rainbo Sponsors for 2014
The 2014 outdoor season is approaching, and Team Rainbo is gearing up for another great year of inline speed skating and racing. None of this could be possible without the support of our sponsors who help finance the uniforms, t-shirts, and racing expenses. We are pleased to announce the sponsors for 2014.
ORBIT ROLLER RINK…… The Orbit Roller Rink has been a great supporter of Team Rainbo since the team began. Always a friend to the team, they have continued to offer us special consideration for our indoor practices during the cold Chicago winters, and an ideal place for us to have our annual meeting/party. They are committed to the world of skating and have the finest indoor skating facility in Illinois. We thank them for continuing to support us. http://www.orbitskate.net/
TWIN CAM BEARINGS…… One of the leaders in the inline skating bearing business, and one of the first companies to promote, support, and sponsor inline skating teams in the US. Used by top professionals, they remain one of the innovators of speed and consistency for all levels of skating. http://www.twincambearing.com/

As we were saying, “All that’s required is a desire to skate.”
Many new members start with recreation/fitness skates. Since the club is so active and the talent level so diverse, there is always someone with whom you can skate. Team “old timers” take pride in helping the new guys and gals – and that’s another measure of success on our team – how much you give back to the team.
On Team Rainbo, it’s what can you do for the team, not what the team can do for you. Due to this team philosophy, we enjoy more than our share of winners at any race we attend. Our members are very competitive. However, the spirit of cooperation is deeply woven into that competitive spirit. While we’re based in the Chicagoland area, we have many members from different states across the nation.
Whether you’re looking to get started in speedskating or if you’re an elite skater looking for challenging training partners, Team Rainbo is the team with something for everybody.
