Now in out third season, our skater development program has changed. New skater orientation is the is the first Sunday of each month. Our goal is to help you become the best player that you can be. There are no timelines to hold you back; you will progress through our training program at your own pace. Please contact email@example.com to sign up and for further information on our league.
Our prgram begins with the “fresh meat” phase. At this stage your training takes place from 7-9 pm Sunday evenings. There are very basic skating skils that you will earn before moving on to the “Rookie” phase.
In the “Rookie” phase, you have become a league member and you will be able to attend the extended practice times. You will further develop your skills and continue to learn the sport of Roller Derby. When ready, you will be assessed to earn your “Cherries”!
Once “Cherried”, you are contact eligible and able to participate in the full practices including scrimmages. The final phases of your skater development is meeting the WFTDA minimum skills requirements. After completing your MST’s you are eligible to make the roster for SCDC bouts.
If you are interested in joining SCDS, the minimum requirements to begin include:
- You must be at least 18 years of age
- You must have medical insurance coverage
A beginner skater is welcome to use rink skates and our “fresh meat” pads and helmets until they are able to purchase their own equipment however, you MUST purchase your own mouth guard. The $3 ones from Wal-mart of Johnny Mack’s work just fine.
