GGRD Boot Camps are designed for skaters who already know how to play roller derby. They are open ONLY to female skaters who have passed their WFTDA Skills Tests and have been placed on a team in an existing league. If you are new to derby, are Fresh Meat, or are an unaffiliated skater, we offer Rec League classes for beginning skaters.

All skaters must provide proof of WFTDA or USARS insurance.
