Lansing Roller Derby Boot Camp

June 5 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Basic Skills Boot Camp is a comprehensive roller derby training course, run twice a week for 8 consecutive weeks. No prior experience is necessary in order to participate! That includes never having skated before. During our boot camp we teach you proper skating form and stance, agility, game play, strategy and everything in between that will allow you to become a successful and safe skater. The boot camp is run by our most experienced coaching and training staff, accompanied by help from the current LRD experienced skaters. Our boot camp’s foundation is focused on developing skaters to their full potential, regardless of prior skill, experience and ability; never limiting or discriminating any member. Ever. Our organization prides itself on providing participants the best possible opportunity to flourish in a safe and positive environment.Our boot camp offers a flexible attendance option! Although it is true, if you attend each session, you will see more noticeable progress, we also understand, life happens and you may not be able to make it every time. That is A-OK. Start skating and attend practice when you can.
