Ready to lace up and learn to play roller derby?

The Avalanche City Roller Derby’s new skater program runs for eight weeks this fall. For $50 they provide all the gear and instruction. All you need to do is show up!

WHO CAN JOIN?
All skaters must be 18 years or older.
For younger skaters, our junior team will be hosting a learn to skate program in the new year. Stay tuned for more details later this fall.

INSURANCE
All participants must be insured before skating. The $50 program cost covers insurance, however, we will need to add you to our policy and have waivers signed before you can skate. We recommend all participants sign up early so we can process insurance before the first night.

WHAT IF I CAN’T SKATE?
Many of our amazing team members had never even put skates on before joining our new skater program. Our program starts at the beginning – with how to lace up and stand up!

WHAT IF I’M NOT FIT?
Many of our fierce team members had never played a sport before joining roller derby. Obviously, the more fit you are, the better. Fitness will help you pick up the skills quicker and help protect your body from injury. However, you can get fit with us. Our first phase of every season focuses on skill development, strength, endurance, and agility.
