BE YOUR OWN HERO! Join us for roller derby bootcamp and learn to play or officiate with the best! We focus on basics in our bootcamps to prepare you for Derby 101!

Bootcamp information: The Bootcamps will be held on July 15 and August 19 at the Summit Sports and Ice Complex in Dimondale from 3-5pm. You’ll learn the basics of skating, including the correct form and important things like how to stop (and how to fall safely!). The vast majority of Vixens did not know how to skate when they started, so we love teaching others how to skate!

Bootcamp costs $15 at the door.

We have some pads and skates available (let us know your size ahead of time!); all you need to bring is a mouthguard and a great attitude! (We strongly recommend SISU mouthguards — you can find other mouthguards at Meijer or sporting goods stores, etc., but they’re bulky and you’ll hate it and end up buying a SISU eventually anyway, so just go ahead and get one now.) Wear comfortable athletic clothing that isn’t too bulky or baggy, and bring a water bottle!

For more information, or to ask about availability of skates and gear, contact recruitment@lansingderbyvixens.com. Contact us for information about our Junior Vixens teams for ages 7-17!
