Skating experience is great, but not required. We recommend that you get out on your skates with proper safety gear and get familiar with what it feels like to be on skates prior to your first day with BCRD. Come prepared to challenge yourself both mentally and physically, and to listen closely to all your trainer’s instructions. Let them know if you’re brand-new to skating or recovering from an injury.
BCRD’s training curriculum is designed to teach you basic skating skills as well as derby-specific skills. At the end of the 12-week program, trainers will assess your safety, stability, and skill-set to see if you’re ready to play roller derby!
