Boot Camps

Gotham Girls Roller Derby

Are you a bouting skater who wants to take it to the next level? Our Boot Camps consist of on- and off-skates classes, followed by open scrimmaging. Instruction covers a full range of roller derby topics including jamming, blocking, strategy and advanced skating skills.

All camps are staffed by members of our coaching committee, which includes members of the five-time reigning WFTDA champions, the Gotham Girls Roller Derby All-Stars. Learn from elite coaches such as Bonnie Thunders, Suzy Hotrod, Ariel Assault, Puss 'N' Glutes and Raggedy Animal, plus some Gotham Girls All-Stars Special Guests!

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 Basic Training classes for beginning skaters.

All skaters must provide proof of WFTDA or USARS insurance.
