2023 FRESHIE PROGRAM
Unleash your inner witch in 2023 by signing up for Freshies!
East Vic Roller Derby’s Freshie program is a 10 week program for new skaters. You’ll learn the fundamentals of skating and roller derby, increase your fitness and discover the thrill of cruisin’ around on 8 wheels.
We have 5 Freshie intake dates planned for 2023, where we explain how roller derby works, fit you for any gear you need to borrow, and get you out on the track to develop your skating skills.
Who can register?
If you’re over the age of 18, this program is appropriate for you.
There’s no need to be a master skater to start out with us: our coaches will train you up from the basics all the way to the top, at your own pace.
So don’t be scared to join.
WHEN: Sundays 4.15pm - 5.45pm.
WEAR: Comfortable clothing, think leggings, t-shirt, etc (we don't recommend uncomfy, rigid denim etc) and sneakers for off-skates activities.
BRING: A drink bottle, pre- or post-snack if you want, a mask, and anything else to help you stay hydrated and comfortable.
