***Summer Session begins June 4th***
Level I: The Level I group is for skaters who are somewhat new to skating and have no previous roller derby experience. Skaters should be familiar with basic roller skating skills, such as controlled starts and stops, crossovers on the corners, gliding on one skate, and skating at least 10 laps without stopping. Skaters in Level I will learn the basics of how to play roller derby, including proper falling technique, skating in close proximity to others and safety on the track. There is minimal contact in the Level I group and skaters will not scrimmage at this level. Every new skater, as well as those returning from injury or those who have been off skates for more than one year, is required to initially enroll in the Level I group. Skaters may advance out of Level I after passing a skills assessment and being cleared by the head trainer.
Level II: The Level II group provides a greater challenge to skaters wanting to improve their derby skills and learn more in-depth game strategy within a supportive group environment in which skaters will focus on more advanced skating skills, as well as basic roller derby skills, including blocking, jamming and safe pack skating. Full contact is permissible at this skill level, thus skaters must demonstrate a high level of safety before advancing into this group. Level II skaters must be comfortable with full contact, skate safely in a pack situation and have a basic knowledge of the WFTDA rules and pass the WFTDA minimum skills test. Skaters in the Level II group are invited to participate in Rec League scrimmages.
WFTDA insurance is mandatory, annual charge from 1/1 – 12/31 is $75. This will drop to $42.50 on 7/1 for those signing up later in the year and will cover skaters for Rec-League practices for the calendar year.
Note: You must be at least 18 to skate with the Texas Rollergirls Rec League. Under 18? Please visit our Jr Derby website for more info: http://www.texasrollergirls.org/jr-derby/
