Boot camps are a 12-week series that occur quarterly and aim to teach skaters the minimum skills required to safely play roller derby at a competitive level. Our boot camp practices take place Sundays from 3-5pm at the Wolf Den (649 Crater Lake Ave).
Skaters need to have a helmet, mouth guard, elbow/wrist/knee pads, and quad skates to participate. We do have some loaner gear, including skates, that skaters are welcome to check out if you don’t have your own gear yet. We do require that loaner gear remain on-site unless our boot camp participants arrange with a Training Committee or BOD member to check them out for a specific event (i.e. parade, trail skate, etc.).
In addition to gear, boot campers will also need to purchase WFTDA insurance, which is specific insurance for roller derby skaters; it can be purchased online at WFTDA.com and is $80 for the year (January-January, not a year from the date purchased). Our dues are $50 for the 3-month series for boot campers and for this skaters will get the weekly boot camp time on Sundays, plus you’re welcome to attend regular league practices Monday and Friday 6-8pm. Following the completion of boot camp, skaters are welcome to re-enroll in boot camp, but your dues will switch to our typical skater dues which are $36/month and you will earn voting rights within the league at this time.
If you have questions or concerns, please email our bootcamp coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org!
