Additional Info:

  • Final schedule of classes will be emailed to attendees by mid-March (or available at registration, if you’re registering late).
  • Skill levels:
    • Developing: You can safely stop, hit, and keep up in a pace line, though you may not feel confident stopping with someone pushing on you, reacting quickly to events on the track, or executing skills with lots of control. You may have passed or be close to passing the WFTDA minimum skills. RCR: Wreckers Level 1
    • Intermediate: You’re good to go with most or all of your WFTDA minimum skills, and you are comfortable with contact and scrimmaging or low-level bouting. Maybe you’re not totally comfortable skating backwards or jamming against tough walls, but you can usually execute common strategies and techniques, and you’re at Derby Daze to continue to build on top of your solid derby foundation. RCR: Wreckers Level 2
    • Advanced: Experienced derby athlete ready to level up by trying advanced skills and learning advanced strategies and formations. RCR: Wreckers Level 3 or home team athletes.
  • If you’re unsure of which skill level you should register for, don’t worry – just pick the best one, and we’ll conduct a quick evaluation Saturday morning of the bootcamp to ensure you’re placed in the best group for your skill level.
  • Adults should expect their days to run 8am-4pm, with breaks for off skates class and lunch (bring your own, leave the premises or purchase the lunch add-on, it’s up to you).
  • Juniors should expect their days to run approximately 8am-2pm. Juniors will be participating in the same programming as adults, but we’re planning shorter breaks since there is no need for junior skaters to leave the premises on breaks!

Saturday night’s Sur5al tournament has been a highlight of Derby Daze for the past two years! What is a Sur5al tournament? We divvy up participants and assign you to a team of 5. Each team is anchored by at least 1 top Wheels of Justice skater! Each jam is like a mini-game – the team that wins the most jams will win the whole tournament. Space is limited so register in advance to secure your spot. Due to insurance requirements, Sur5al registration is available for ages 18+ only.
