Junior Roller Derby
Rockin’ City Junior Roller Derby is an inclusive junior derby program for all children ages 6-17 years old dedicated to nurturing self confidence and body positive attitudes through camaraderie and sportsmanship.
What is the Junior Roller Derby Program?
Rockin’ City offers a co-ed program for all levels of skaters ages 6 to 17. Our curriculum takes brand new skaters from learning how to skate all the way to highly skilled roller derby players.
We offer a Beginner class to learn how to skate on quads and the basic skills needed for roller derby, such as stance, stride, stops, falls. Our skaters must master these basic skills before they graduate to the first level (Level 1). Coaches will work with the skaters on controlling themselves while on skates. Roller derby rules are introduced.
Our Intermediate practice group are a mixture of skaters who passed Level 1 assessments and/or Level 2 assessments and are not ready for full contact. “Leaning” or positional blocking is a main focus for this group. More details about the rules and scoring are discussed. Our Intermediate skaters may be scrimmaging at practices, please have a black and a white T-shirt with you at every practice.
The Advanced practice group is composed of experienced Level 2 and Level 3 skaters who play full contact roller derby. Our advanced skaters may be scrimmaging at practices, please have a black and a white T-shirt with you at every practice.
Skaters are individually assessed for skills and knowledge of the rules of the game, they move up in level when they are safe to do so.
Junior Insurance is $40 per calendar year.
Monthly dues are $55.
