The mission of Junior Roller Derby is to promote athleticism, camaraderie, and positive self-esteem.
Skaters will be divided and instructed by skill level. Roller Derby is open to any student between the ages of 8 and 17 years. Beginners will cover basic skating form and awareness; safe falls, stops and starts, and avoiding obstacles. Skaters will progress to learning to skate safely in partnerships and in groups. The more advanced skaters will begin working on light contact derby skills including hopping, weaving, positional blocking, lean-outs, giving and receiving pushes, and hitting form. While working on skills, all skaters will focus on personal growth and teamwork.
