Get ready to begin your roller derby and skating education!

Our 12-weeks Foundations program will prep you for your skating journey, whether you wish to one day play for Tri-City Roller Derby, be a skating referee, or just learn some really cool skating and derby skills.

Classes focus on a range of skating skills such as: skating form, building speed and confidence, stopping, blocking, falling safely, working in the pack and playing the game (the best part).

After completion of the program and a pass of your WFTDA minimum skills, you will be eligible to join Tri-City league practices and the development team, the  Total Knock Outs. And if you’re interested in becoming a referee, we have an excellent officials crew that will be happy to help you on that side of the journey too!
