Blue Ridge Rollergirls Bootcamp and Tryout information:
Blue Ridge Rollergirls will be hosting bootcamps for newbie skaters on Sunday, September 29th and Sunday October 13th during regularly scheduled practice time, 8-10pm at Tarwheels.
Team tryouts will be held on Sunday November 17th. from 8-10pm
Cost for the boot camp is $5.00 per skater unless you are currently a dues paying baby in which case there is no charge to attend.
Full gear will be required for every skater participating on skates in the camp and tryouts. This includes a helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads and a mouth guard.
You will be required to show ID, skaters must be 18 to participate. You will be required to sign a release of liability before skating.
The skills presented at the boot camp and required at tryouts can be found on the WFTDA website. They are taken directly from the WFTDA list of minimum skills. Tryouts are pass/fail, skaters are assessed by the brrg training committee for skating proficiency, safety and readiness to begin contact training.
If you have any questions about requirements, gear, our league or derbyin general please contact Blue Ridge recruitment at
If you are interested in getting skate time and coaching prior to tryouts we strongly encourage you to participate in our derby babies program.
Derby babies are dues paying skaters with access to rink space during regularly scheduled brrg practice three days/week.
Baby dues are $20/month. You will be invited to participate in league warm ups, youll be provided written practice plans and access to closed brrg practice and scrimmage. This is a great way to get skate time and begin getting involved with the league. Babies practices are generally self lead but we do our best to facilitate coaching and feedback as often as possible while league practice is in progress. Derby babies have a tremendous advantage when tryouts come around, often beginning training months in advance, knowing exactly what will be expected and how to perform each skill correctly and effectively. If you are interested in playing roller derby, dont wait to lace up! Contact recruitment and schedule a time to visit, observe your first practice off skates and get details on how to get rolling!!
