Reckless Skate Camp
Jul 20, 2020 - Sep 12, 2020
 

Bay Area Derby presents Reckless Skate Camp, a progressive skating clinic aimed at getting beginner skaters ready for entry-level roller derby.

During classes, we will teach a structured agenda starting from the very beginner level skills and building up to the minimum skills required to join a roller derby league as a new skater with the goal of preparing skaters for league tryouts.

The Bay Area Derby Reckless Skate Camp is geared towards beginner skaters who want to skate in a flat track roller derby environment. We’ll break down the basics of proper derby stance, work on building muscles to maintain that stance, stopping techniques, fluid movement on the track, laterals, jumping and weaving. The latter part of the classes will focus on partner and pack work as well as game aspects, including blocking and hitting.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Open to female-identifying and gender non-binary individuals who are at least 18 years old, and interested in learning how to play flat track roller derby under the WFTDA ruleset. You must have a basic ability to:

-- balance/roll on skates with no outside assistance

-- stay active for up to two hours at a time

-- exert yourself physically and mentally throughout the session

Attendance at every session is not required but highly encouraged, as each class builds upon the previous one. No refunds will be given, including for missed sessions or drop-outs. We are limiting the camp to 35 skaters in order to provide each participant quality instruction and individual feedback.

Register today to save your spot!

Please arrive 15 minutes before sessions to gear up and warm up. Bring sneakers.

PRICING

Skate Camp Pass $199

Skate Camp Pass holders may also attend Sunday’s Dudes practice and Friday Open Skate for free throughout July and August.

REQUIRED GEAR

Quad roller derby skates with appropriate indoor wheels

Protective gear (helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads)

Well-fitting mouthguard

Skates and protective gear (aside from mouthguard) are possible to borrow at our practice venue each session on a first-come, first-served basis. We cannot guarantee your size or quality of equipment. We highly recommend purchasing your own protective gear for cleanliness and safety. You MUST provide your own mouthguard.

Quad Republic Skate Co. (https://www.quadrepublicskateco.com/) is a skate shop located in El Cerrito, CA and is able to help with any equipment needs. They are offering a 10% discount to Reckless Camp participants.
