Overview

Improve balance, agility, leg strength coordination, and endurance while celebrating Wisconsin Lumberjack heritage with this fun and unique sport! At Madison Log Rolling we focus on a fun environment for children (and adults!) to step out of their comfort zone and try something new. Many roll just for fun, others become competitors who are now featured on ESPN! We offer class drop-in options and private lessons for our out of town visitors.

We attended a team event with Madison Log Rolling and had so much fun! Spencer and Olivia were great! We wanted to do something "out of the box" as team bonding and this definitely covered it! We cannot wait to do it again! Highly recommend!
