Three Rivers Inline Club

Three Rivers Inline Club

The Three Rivers Inline Club (TRIC) is a not-for-profit inline skating club in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


The club was founded in 1994 by several members of the Pittsburgh Inline Skate Club (PISC). The purpose of the club is to promote the sport of inline roller skating and to offer social skates and non-skating events for members [] .
TRIC operates the website [] as a comprehensive guide to inline skating in the greater Pittsburgh area. As well the website serves as a repository for photos and events sponsored by the club or that the club participates in.

Weekly Skates

TRIC holds multiple skates every week each targeted at different levels of skaters. []
Skates are patrolled by the National Skate Patrol (NSP) local Pittsburgh chapter lead by Gene Slevinski. The patrolers lead many of the skates and attempt to keep the skaters safe while skating with pedestrian and motor vehicle traffic. The Pittsburgh NSP also runs start and stop clinics which teach new skaters the basics of skating.

The weekly skates run from early spring to mid fall.
