East Vic Roller Derby in affiliation with South Sea Roller Derby and with the sponsorship of Skate Victoria are proud to offer again in 2019 our Junior Roller Derby Program.
The program is open to all school aged skaters, of all genders. If you can stand on your skates or are an accomplished skater, we welcome you all. Our program focuses on fitness, confidence, good sportsmanship, learning the game and skills development.
For our level 1 & 2 South East Magic Roller skaters we will be focusing on building resilience, and advancing on track strategies and gameplay.
Sessions run every Saturday of the school term at the Skate Victoria Shed, Greaves Reserve, Dandenong. The sessions are split by skill level rather than age (we will divide into groups as required), with some overlap of levels.
