Join Derby! Junior Intro Series (12-17 years old)

Ready to start your roller derby journey? Now is the chance! Send your skater to us so they can learn basic derby skills, have some fun, and decide if they would like to continue on and become a member with us.

In these four sessions, your skater will experience an on-skates practice with current Rosebuds skaters. They’ll have the opportunity to be in the Hangar and meet their future coach and community.

**Participants will be able to onboard with the league at our next orientation, if they so choose. Our next scheduled Zoom orientation is Monday October 2nd @ 6pm.
