We’re looking for skaters and refs—no experience required! We’ll teach you what you need to know at our 5-week training boot camp from Sept. 9th-Oct. 12th.

What: A 3 day/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 and Vernal)
When: Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from Sept. 9 through Oct. 12
How much: $60  for boot camp + $35 WFTDA insurance (total of $95).
Why: Because BHRG wants YOU!

SCHEDULE RUNDOWN:
Mondays, 7-9pm. From 7-8, you’ll do technical skills/footwork drills with the league. From 8-9, you’ll learn about derby gameplay and rules in addition to doing off-skates workouts.

Thursdays, 7-9pm. Thursdays are the practice days for bootcampers and others in our newbie skater program, the Disorderlies. We’ll work on a variety of skating skills these nights.

Saturdays, 10am-12pm. Off-skates training for the first hour, then open laps to work on skills.

At the end of the boot camp, we’ll have a scrimmage–if you’ve passed your WFTDA minimums by then and are eligible, you can choose to participate for an extra $7.

Any questions / need more info? Just email recruitment@bleedingheartlandrollergirls.com!

We’re also having a one-night skills camp on August 26th, which is a great lead-in to boot camp and an opportunity to talk to our skaters and get any questions answered – info on skills camp here!
