BE YOUR OWN HERO September 14th, come start roller derby! CNYRD
There is no obligation to join from attending...show up, meet the girls (and guys) of CNYRD, talk to us about how you'd like to be involved and tell us about yourselves. Best part is- It's all FREE. If you'd like to skate, you can sign a waiver, throw on some pads and skates that we supply, and cruise around with us for a couple hours.
If you decide you like it (and we KNOW you will!) we have a new skater class starting the very next week, on Tues Sept 21st from 7-10pm at the Utica Center for Development gym, 726 Washington St in Utica (former YMCA). The new skater program runs for 12 weeks, and covers everything you need to become an awesome new skater. We spend the first 4-6 weeks covering nothing but the basics- stance, stride, crossovers, balance, etc, and then we take a mini-assessment to see if you're ready for more complicated maneuvers. Once you're ready, we start showing you hitting, jumping, and all the other fun stuff. You'll also be invited at this point to also attend advanced practices simultaneously.
Overall, you have to attend 10 out of 12 of the newbie practices within the 12 week period, and also at least 3 of the advanced practices during the same time frame.
If you have questions about costs, insurance, gear, etc, please contact our Recruitment Committee Chair, Bitter Swede at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in refereeing or NSO'ing, please contact our Administrative Head Ref, I.M. Law at email@example.com
This new skater class will end on Tues Dec 14th and there will not be another one until Spring of 2011.
