Boot Camp

Details

The Boot Camp runs for 8 weeks starting January 26th. The first hour of each practice will be group exercises with a focus on core skating skills. The second hour will break into groups based on skill level. Each group will have one of Maelstom’s renowned coaches providing targeted training to allow each skater to improve skills and roller derby gameplay.  

No experience is necessary. Our trainers are ready to help even if you have never been on skates. If you have skating or derby experience, this boot camp will help you improve your core skills and gameplay.

All skaters must be at least 18 years of age.


What you will need…

When you arrive at your first practice, bring your state-issued ID, proof of medical insurance, and $60 (check, cash, or PayPal).

If you complete the boot camp and wish to continue training with Mass Maelstrom, the regular membership dues start at $30/month. You will also need to purchase WFTDA insurance and maintain it annually.  https://wftda.org/insurance/purchase
