We’re looking for skaters and refs—no experience required! We’ll teach you what you need to know at our six-week training boot camp from September 24 to November 5. Whether you come in fresh or had a taste for derby at our skills camp, this is a great opportunity to get in on the action!
What: A six-week boot camp to get YOU ready for team placements!
Who: This boot camp is for all new skaters, including those already in our Disorderlies program!
Where: Our badass warehouse, the Cardiac Arena (known to most as 1801 N. Curry Pike, at the corner of Curry Pike and Vernal Pike)
When: Mondays and Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-Noon
(Begins Thursday, Sept. 24th, with an optional informational/paperwork day on Monday, Sept. 21)
How much: $60 for the boot camp + $35 for WFTDA insurance = $95
Why: Because BHRD wants YOU!
The cost for the boot camp is $95, which is $60 for the boot camp itself and $35 for insurance through WFTDA, which will need to be paid before you can skate at the Cardiac Arena. You will also need your own skates and gear, but we do have some gear available to rent if you need to. Figuring out what gear you need can be overwhelming, but not to worry — following our Skills Camp on Sept. 14, we’ll have an optional informational session on Monday, Sept. 21 to kick-off the boot camp, during which we’ll give you the lowdown on all things gear-related. Once you’re armed with knowledge, you can order gear online, go to Vital Skates in Indy, or look for used gear in good condition locally or online. We’ll be happy to help you figure out what you need.
Informational Session on Monday, Sept. 21: This session is for people who want to sign-up for our boot camp. We’ll educate you about the necessary derby gear, have you fill out paperwork, and observe the league practicing.
Thursday, Sept. 24: First day of our boot camp.
Thursday, November 5: Last day of our boot camp.
Thursday, Nov. 12 and Saturday, Nov. 14: After our boot camp ends, participants who have passed their WFTDA minimum skills test will have two chances to skate in scrimmages, which will also be used to determine league placement. The Saturday evening scrimmage will be open to the public, so your friends and family can come and cheer you on!
Mondays, 7-9 p.m.—From 7-8 p.m., you’ll skate with our league members, and from 8-9 p.m., we’ll have off-skates training planned for you.
Thursdays, 7-9 p.m.—Thursdays are Disorderlies practices—you’ll do technical skills/footwork drills with the league, learn about derby gameplay and rules, and do some off-skates workouts.
Saturdays, 10 a.m.-Noon—Open laps (to practice skills learned during the week) and off-skates training.
