Learn new skills and drills from the Rat City All-Stars! Push your game to the next level with expert derby training. Start your 2012 season off right! Skaters from the Rat City All-Stars will help you hone your skills in a two-day bootcamp with beginner and advanced level classes.
The Intermediate/Advanced level camp will focus on the most current strategies in derby. We’ll cover advanced individual skills like hockey stops, sternum blocks, juking, and footwork.
The beginner classes will focus on developing strong foundational skills and a deeper understanding of the game. We will focus on hitting, skating form, and positioning.
Camp will feature on-skates sessions led by current all-star skaters as well as off-skates sessions to address cross-training and injury prevention (bring running/tennis shoes!).
We are happy to offer skater-hosted housing for campers from out of town. Please indicate in your registration if you will need housing.
Please bring a water bottle, snacks, money for lunch/dinner at a local restaurant, a notebook and pen, tennis shoes and all required derby gear and skates.

Beginner Class: Saturday 9 am to 1 pm and Sunday 1 pm to 5 pm

*We will cover basic/foundational skills. However, we request that all participants are able to skate with cross-overs and to give and receive contact.
