Derby School is an 8 week course dedicated to teaching all the skills needed to play roller derby with no previous skating experience required.

Derby School participants will receive:

  • One-on-one coaching, as well as small group coaching from the 2016 International WFTDA Division 2 Champions

  • Access to Safety Gear & Rental Skates (we are asking students to bring a mouth guard and a helmet of their own)

  • A Blue Ridge Roller Derby t-shirt

  • A syllabus & info packet

  • Access to the derby school facebook group

  • Strength, self confidence, and a supportive community

If minimum participation is not reached derby school will be cancelled so please bring your friends and don’t be intimidated!

“We were all there at one time, learning to skate can be intimidating, but going back to the rink every week with a supportive group of newbies can be a life-changing experience. In roller derby, these people become your teammates and support network.”
