No experience is needed to join as a new skater or referee! We put you through a training program and teach you the ins and outs of derby and referee skating. Start with boot camp to develop your skating skills or to just get in shape the derby way! Then make your way to Fresh Meat to become an assessed MBDD skater.
Get in shape the derby way. Whether your goal is to be a derby skater or just want to get in shape join us for this 8 week boot camp! Learn basics of skating, how to fall safely (everyone falls!), how to stop and the rules of game play from MBDD Skaters and Officials.
