Rollerskating 101 for All Ages, Shapes & Abilities
Have you ever wanted to join Hellgate Rollerderby but you felt intimidated? Let me tell you something. These derby people in your community, they are some of the nicest, kindest most inclusive bunch of family you will ever encounter. Do they look like they live for derby and play like their lives depend on it? Yes, but they're fun and funny and they'll teach YOU how to be a great skater.
Never skated? Doesn't matter. Haven't skated since middle school? That's fine. Feel out of shape? Skating will get you IN shape. Think you're too old to learn something new? That's ridiculous, you should learn something new every day for the rest of your life.
Don't let excuses get in the way of trying something new! Skating 101 is a 5-week roller derby training camp for new and beginner level skaters. The course begins on October 10 with orientation, then you'll be on skates starting October 17th. Class/practice will be held every Wednesday 5:30pm - 7:30pm at Sovereign Hope Gym, 1919 North Ave West and adults of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. The course fee is $45 plus the cost of gear. Limited spots are available, so sign up now and you could be the rockstar we are cheering on in 2019!
