Absolutely! This class will cover the basic skills you need to become a roller derby skater. You do not need previous experience. All skills levels are welcome.
Do I have to know how to play roller derby?
Nope! You will begin with basic skating skills and progress towards learning the rules and strategies of the game. Experienced skaters interested in transferring should email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your previous league and experience level.
What can I do to get ready for the class?
