Ever thought about learning to play roller derby, or just learning how to roller skate?
Our skating program, Skate Charlotte, is a weekly class that teaches the basics of roller skating: Stride, Stops, Recovery, Footwork, Jumps, and much, much more!
Whether you have previous skating experience, or putting on skates for the first time in your life, this class will get you skating into fitness through roller derby inspired skills and drills.
If you are interested in playing roller derby with the Charlotte Roller Girls, this class is the first step in learning the fundamentals; once you have the basics down, you may join the league and begin attending our roller derby practices.
Interested in skating just for fun and fitness? Skate Charlotte is open to registered skaters on a drop-in basis, come skate with us as often as you’d like!

Roller Derby is a high impact, full contact sport and we take big hits and hard falls. Pads and helmets are the only things between your fragile bones/head and very hard surfaces.
