Do you love to skate? Have you ever watched a bout and wondered if you have what it takes? Do you dream of playing roller derby?

Yes? Then this is for you!

Burning River Roller Girls is looking for women 18 years or older interested in learning the skills necessary to join the league. We will host three bootcamps over the next few months leading up to tryouts to become a Burning River Roller Girl!

BOOTCAMP 1

Sunday, April 22, 9:45 a.m. to noon
(Be geared up and ready to go at 10 a.m.)
Pla-Mor Skating Rink in Euclid, 22466 Shore Center Drive, Cleveland, OH

BOOTCAMP 2

Sunday, May 20, 7:45 p.m. to 10 p.m.
(Be geared up and ready to go at 8 p.m.)
Brunswick Skate Station, 1261 Industrial Pkwy N # 4  Brunswick, OH 44212

BOOTCAMP 3

Wednesday, June 13, 7:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
(Be geared up and ready to go at 7:30 p.m.)
Pla-Mor Skating Rink in Euclid, 22466 Shore Center Drive, Cleveland, OH

DETAILS

Cost will be $10 for each session. You must bring a driver’s license or state ID with you.

Gear Required

Skaters must either purchase or make their own arrangements to borrow gear and skates. The usual brown rental rink skates will be available, but it’s highly recommended to have your own skates or borrow regular derby skates as they are quite a bit different. For more details on required gear, recommended brands, and locations to purchase gear, visit our website.

  • Quad skates
  • Hockey/Skateboard/Bicycle helmet
  • Knee pads
  • Elbow pads
  • Wrist guards
  • Mouth guard

At these bootcamps some of our coaches will demonstrate and have skaters practice the skills that will be tested during tryouts to become a Burning River Roller Girl.

Basic skating competency is required (if you still hold on to a wall while skating, this isn’t for you). This is NOT a skating lesson, and the skills demonstrated and practiced will be difficult to complete if attendees are unable to skate.

Still interested? Contact our recruiting director, Soul Eater, at recruiting@burningriverrollergirls.com so she can answer any of your questions and keep you updated on all the latest information about training to become a roller girl! Tryouts could be as early as July 1, so get on the list so you know when the date is set.
