This is a one time intro class for students interested in getting into playing roller derby in their home towns. The class will be presented on a slide presentation with video clips, Q&A and group exercises. The style of the class will be conversational and interactive.

Students will learn what the game of roller derby is about, what gear is needed and the basic skating skills needed to get started with the sport.
I am a current A level skater on my league with 9 years of derby experience and 32 years of skating experience. I am also the Chair of Skater Development on my league, responsible for training, and assessing all skaters on my league for skating skill, safety and game play knowledge.
Students will not have homework but are encouraged to practice the exercises we learn during the class.
Skates and safety gear may be brought to class but not required.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students who want to practice at home on skates should do so with adult supervision and while wearing all required safety gear.
