Adult Into to Derby Series (Aug 2024)

Ready to live your derby dreams and become a part of this rad community?!

In this series, you will attend four 2-hour practices, learning basic skating skills with a roller derby flair. At the end of the series, you will be invited to become a member of Rose City Rollers and continue your derby journey!

The skills covered include standing, falling, stopping, and crossovers. More advanced skaters will learn backwards skating, lateral movement, and transitions (changing from forwards to backwards skating while rolling). While these are basic skating skills, they are taught through a roller derby lens and layered with light pack drills.

When: Saturdays, 8 to 10 am (8/24, 8/31, 9/7, and 9/14).

Where: The Hangar at Oaks Park 

How much: $150
