So, you wanna be a roller girl?!
Are you looking for a new sports challenge? Roller derby with the Brewcity Bruisers might be right for you! We understand that most people haven’t strapped on skates since they were teenagers, so we have a training program designed to accommodate interested skaters of ALL skill levels.
Step 1: Contact Us!
Let us know you are interested. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number and main contact email address. You will receive an email confirmation loaded with information about Boot Camps, Recruitment Meetings, Rec League, Brewcity Bruiser Events and more!
Step 2: Start Skating and Get Involved!
Great, you’re now on our email distribution and you’ll want to start training to become member! The most important thing you can do is put on some skates and start roller skating. Skate outside, at roller rinks, anywhere you can! Also, get involved! Volunteering with the league is a great way to learn about how the Brewcity Bruisers work and play in the community and great opportunity to “rub elbows” with our great members. Use this volunteer form to contact our director of volunteers. All of our members are volunteers!
Step 3: Attend a Boot Camp for Newbies!
Boot Camp is for women ages 18 and over who are 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 strengthen 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 our Rec League, the Brewcity Bootleggers.
Our next Boot Camp will be held Saturday, May 13, 2017 at 9 AM – 12 PM.
Don’t forget to check back for other future Boot Camp dates!
