Rec League/Brewcity Bootleggers
Are you looking for a new sports challenge? Roller derby with the Brewcity Bruisers might be right for you! Rec derby is a great way to get active, gain some skills and become a great part of our league! This opportunity is open for women, 18 years and older.
Brewcity Bruisers Roller Derby Bootcamps: This is for women new to quad roller skates that need to learn the basic fundamentals of derby style roller skating. This is a one-day 3 hour class where you will master your form, strides, crossovers, balance, control as you fall and recover—all while focusing on safety first. There is absolutely no contact at our Boot Camps, but you will get quite a work out and leave wanting more! Upon completion of a Boot Camp, you may be cleared to join Rec League 101. Contact recruitment@brewcitybruisers.
