Description

Want to learn to play roller derby? You're in the right place.

This two-day bootcamp run by Calgary's WFTDA league will set you up for success in the 2019-20 rookie training season. This bootcamp is designed for skaters who are brand new to roller derby, and those who have a little bit of experience but are looking for a beginner bootcamp to get them ready for the rookie season.

What to bring: Come with your full roller derby gear (all safety gear and skates), dressed in workout clothes, running shoes and bring a water bottle.

What we'll cover: Our bootcamp is based on WFTDA's minimum skills requirements. We'll cover basic skating skills, including proper stride and posture and several types of stops. You'll learn how to fall safely, maneuver around other skaters and how to take and receive a hit safely. We'll also work on balance, agility and rules. You can check out WFTDA's minimum skills here: https://wftda.com/the-game/training/

When: This is a two-day bootcamp, so please plan to attend both sessions. Saturday, Aug. 24 5-8 p.m. and Sunday Aug. 25 1-3 p.m. in the gym at the West Hillhurst Community Association (1940 6 Ave NW). Light snacks and refreshments will be provided both days.

Cost: Just $50 to set your derby dreams in action! E-mail transfer instructions can be found in the registration form.
