Joining GRR

riffraff2We are always looking for new skaters, refs, officials and volunteers

Have you come to one of our bouts and wondered just how you could become a Gainesville Roller Rebel? One of the best ways to see if this game is for you is to come to one of our boot camps. We host a boot camp once every three to four months for 3 consecutive Sundays to teach some basic skills and give you a feel of what it is like to be a Roller Rebel.

Upcoming Boot Camps

Participants will learn basic and foundational skating skills, as well as informational sessions on gear, derby 101, and some off skate training lessons.

Prices: The bootcamp, for all three Sundays, will cost $30.00. This registration price includes the rental of all derby gear. Any participants who already have gear will receive a $10.00 discount off of the registration price.

What to wear and bring:¬†Everyone should wear lightweight athletic clothing and closed toed running shoes. You should also bring your own gallon of water – this is a very active boot camp so we all need to stay hydrated! If you have gear, bring it! If not, don’t worry! We will provide it for you. HOWEVER, every participant MUST bring their own heat-molded mouth guard. You can get a mouth guard from Sports Authority or Walmart. Please do not forget to bring a mouth guard because you WILL NOT be eligible to skate without one!There is absolutely no previous experience required. Just bring a positive attitude and a love for derby, and we will provide the rest! Participant registration may be limited to a certain amount of people so register AS SOON AS YOU CAN! If you cannot attend these dates please send us an email to reserve your space in the next session.
