**The event originally scheduled for Feb. 24th has been moved to March 10th. If you registered for the original date, please confirm attendance on March 10 by re-registering at the link below**
At this two-hour session, we’ll show you how to gear-up and go over basic skating and derby techniques. This is a good starting point for anyone — even if you’ve never worn a pair of skates in your life! If you are more advanced or have experience, we’ll make sure you’re not bored.
This will be a no-contact bootcamp.
— Pre-registration recommended via the link below. We will supply loaner gear on a first-come basis.
— Participants must bring their own pre-sized mouthguard (a standard boil-and-bite is great, but make sure you size it ahead of time).
— Face mask that covers nose and mouth required.

Wondering if you’re roller derby material?
If you have the desire and drive to be part of one of the fastest-growing sports in the world — you are roller derby material! LRD includes members from all walks of life: students, working parents, and professionals; former varsity athletes and those who took up a sport for the first time in their 30s; the swoll, the skinny, and the extra-padded.
We are a league committed to women’s leadership, empowerment, camaraderie, inclusivity, and athleticism, and we want you on our team. If you are interested, read through the attached informational documents. Then watch Facebook for information on Recruitment sessions and Bootcamps, and send our Trainers a message.
Anyone who feels they belong on a predominantly women’s team is welcome to skate with LRD. Referee, NSO, and volunteer positions are open to all.
