Micro Bruisers – Session 1
October 27, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Joining the Micro Bruisers
The Brewcity Micro Bruisers are open to girls between 8-17 years old interested in learning the sport of roller derby and working on skating and derby skills. Although no previous roller derby experience is required to participate, interested skaters should have basic forward skating skills and an athletic drive. Because there are various skill levels in the Micro Bruisers, anyone is able to start as a beginner and work their way up.
- Beginner Level and Level 1 practices have mostly no contact and focus on improving basic skating form, stops and safe falls.
- Level 2 and 3 practices begin to include blocking and jamming drills with contact and work on the strategy of the game. A skills test and written test are required to move up into higher levels to ensure that all skaters are safe and educated about the game.
To register for Micro Bruisers, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A registration form will be sent to you.
The Micro Bruisers learn all the basics of roller derby in a controlled, age/skill level progression from current and former Brewcity Bruiser adult skaters.
Practices are held on Sunday evenings. Beginner and Level 1 skaters practice from 5-7 p.m. and Level 2 and 3 skaters practice from 7-9 p.m. All sessions last for 8 weeks.
- Session 1 – October 27, 2013 – December 22, 2013 (there will be no practice November 10th due to the WFTDA Championships being held at U.S. Cellular)
