Thinking of trying roller derby? Interested in being involved in one of the fastest growing women’s sports in the world? Join Gallatin Roller Girlz for our brand new Fresh Meat (i.e. new skater) Boot Camp! This 8 week program runs from January 6 – February 27 and costs $100.
Gallatin Roller Girlz is piloting the Fresh Meat Camp program as we venture away from our yearlong open enrollment structure in an effort to better support our new skaters as they embark on the journey of learning to derby. A ground level curriculum, the Fresh Meat Camp is designed to ‘bring up’ and ‘graduate’ a full class of skaters into contact level skating with your league. During the 8 week camp, a full curriculum of basic skills will be taught followed by our Snowflake Assessment (i.e. passing to contact rated skater). Skaters will then be enrolled in another 8 week program that teaches the finer nuances of the sport including blocking and strategy – Derby 101.
The Gallatin Roller Girlz will offer this Fresh Meat Camp twice yearly during our ‘shoulder season’ during winter and again in the autumn.
**All new skaters must graduate from a Fresh Meat Camp in order to skate with the league. Exception to this rule is preexisting contact rated transfer skaters from other leagues. Please see transfer skater policy for details.
