Spring 2014 Boot Camp/Derby 101/Recreational Class Passes
DC Rollergirls is proud to present the Spring 2014 season of the Recreational League/Derby 101/Boot Camp! Sessions will be offered on a weekly basis to those skaters who are looking for an alternative to full-time league membership. Due to popular demand, this will be geared towards new skaters, similar to last summer's boot camp. The second half of the season will be split between level 1 and level 2 skaters. If there is sufficient demand, we can start Level 2 agendas earlier in the season. You can purchase a single drop-in pass, or go for broke and get a full season pass to all of them! Sessions will be taught by DC Rollergirls' top-notch trainers on a variety of levels to accommodate all skill proficiency (once you've got the basics down!).
Loaner gear will NOT be available for Rec League sessions. Department of Skate (deptofskate.com), located at 519 H St. NW in Chinatown, is a local skate shop owned and operated by two of DC Rollergirls' finest. Helena Handbag and Velocityraptor can get you the best gear for your needs. You must have: quad skates, helmet, mouth guard, hard-shell knee pads, hard-shell elbow pads, hard-shell wrist guards.
Pricing is shown at two rates: New Skater and DCRG Retired Rollergirls. Please be aware that prices for walk-ins on the day-of increase slightly.
