Rocky Marval (born Rocco Marvaldi, November 11, 1965) is an American pair skater. With partner Calla Urbanski, he is the 1992–1993 U.S. National Champion. They finished 10th at the 1992 Winter Olympics.
Urbanski and Marval were nicknamed "The Waitress and the Truck Driver" by the media because of their former occupations. They announced the end of their partnership in June 1992. In late 1993, Marval teamed up with Natasha Kuchiki, with whom he finished fourth at the 1994 U.S. Championships, missing the 1994 Olympic team.
Urbanski and Marval teamed up again and turned pro; in 1998, the team was third at the World Professional Championships.
Marval works at the Igloo Ice Rink in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, as the director of skating.
