Roller Derby is… Feeling Unstoppable!
Seattle Derby Brats, the area's oldest and largest junior roller derby league, is now enrolling for their annual New Skater Camp, designed for girls ages 8-18 who are interested in becoming a part of one of the fastest growing youth sports in the world! Whether your daughter just loves to roller skate with friends or whether she's looking for a new athletic challenge, we have a place for her!
REGISTER NOW: seattlederbybrats.com/camp.
Tootsy Rollers (girls, ages 8-11): Sundays 7/23-8/13, 1-4 pm
Junior Mints (girls, ages 12-17): Sundays 7/23-8/13, 4-7 pm
Camp is held at the Shoreline Derby Center, more affectionately known as The Rat’s Nest, located at 19200 Aurora Ave N in Shoreline.
At New Skater Camp, girls learn the skating basics of roller derby, like how to do crossovers if they don't already know, how to stop safely (a very important skill!), and of course, the rules of the game. Our goal at New Skater Camp is to help new skaters learn fundamental skating skills and have fun in the process.
The total cost of camp is $200. If fees are a hardship, we offer financial aid for qualifying applicants.
How to Register:
We use an online registration system. You can register here: go.teamsnap.com/forms/52642.
Upon registration, a more detailed letter will be emailed to you, outlining what you can expect from camp and what your skater will need for camp.
Skaters with a complete application and paid fees are accepted to New Skater Camp on a first come, first served basis. We do recommend everyone complete the online registration as soon as possible, as there are limited slots and a high level of girls experiencing interest in junior roller derby and New Skater Camp.
Who We Are:
The Seattle Derby Brats empowers girls to be strong, healthy and confident. We do this through a supportive, inclusive community teaching girls to play at a highly athletic level within a team environment, focusing on respect, leadership and sportsmanship. Our league has over 160 skaters, ages 8-18; we have four divisions based on skill level and eight different teams, starting with our youngest Tootsy Rollers all the way to the Galaxy Girls, who compete on the national level and are currently the reigning National Champions.
