We've secured dates for our Winter Bootcamp!!!
Bootcamp will begin: Sunday February 4th at 1pm, and will be held every Sunday from 1-3pm and every Thursday from 5-7pm, through Thursday, March 22nd.
We will will also have a special "Mock try-out" Sunday March 25th, followed by actual tryouts on Thursday March 29th (please note this date could change)
Details: Bootcamp is $175 and includes a bootcamp tshirt. Everyone who attends bootcamp must have proof of personal medical insurance. In order to participate, and you must be at least 18 years old and have all of your own gear: skates, helmet, mouth guard, wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads. Bill at Skateworks in downtown Santa Cruz (131 Center Street) is an excellent resource for gear. Make sure to tell them you’re gearing up for bootcamp! Also, please note that AT A MINIMUM you must be able to skate independently (without holding onto rails or walls) around the track for two hours, and you must be able to stop yourself without falling down or grabbing anyone else. Bootcamp is focused on skating fundamentals and the minimum skills assessment. We will teach you how to fall safely, how to stop, how to skate in derby form, and more.
There are several league members that go to the Santa Cruz Palladium on Wednesday nights, and I highly recommend getting out there, meeting them, ask them questions, and get super comfy on skates
