L2S Wheels2

Have you been seeing pictures of people playing roller derby or just having fun at events like Sk8rx or the Saint John Wheel Men’s Roller Disco.

Do you wish you could join them but you don’t know how to roller skate?

Well it’s your lucky day because Fog City Rollers will teach you everything you need to know.

This 12 session course will teach you the basics of skating. You will then have the option to join the Fog City Rollers “Fresh Meat” program. This is a more advanced program that teaches you the specific skills needed to play roller derby.

When: Every Tuesday night at 7:00pm starting June 17th, 2014

Where: Stewart Hurley Arena (1500 Hickey Road E, Saint John, NB, E2J 4E7)

Cost: $100 (Half up front and half within the first 4 weeks) plus insurance cost of $50

Bring a pre-formed mouth guard which you can buy in Saint John at any sporting goods store or Heartbreak Boutique. For insurance purposes we also require you to wear knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, a helmet, and quad skates. If you have any of this please bring it. If you do not have these things there is a possibility we will have some to lend you for a session or two. If you do need to borrow gear please send an email a few days in advance to alien she (alien5she@gmail.com).

Roller derby gear can be purchased at the following locations:
http://heartbreakboutique.com/
http://skateneon.com/
https://www.rollergirl.ca/
All three of these locations have excellent customer service and will be able to help you pick out a package that includes everything you need to start skating.
