Greg Keim.  Owner and President
American Inline 

Who We Are

Our company was founded in 1993 and has been growing ever since. It began with Greg Keim in Fairfax, Virginia. Greg established an inline skating school with the highest standard of service and reliability. He was always on time and provided a comfortable learning environment.  Greg didn't just teach in-line skating.  He educated his students and improved the quality of their lives. The business grew mainly through word of mouth as more satisfied students shared their stories. Soon recreation agencies in Northern Virginia and Maryland contacted Greg to conduct classes and camps at their recreation centers. Public and private schools also wanted his programs for after school enrichment.  Today, American Inline has a family of 26 clients in 10 counties.  They host over 100 camps every summer with a camp staff of over 50 trained, certified instructors.
