Our new training clinics will teach you some basic roller derby skills and give you time to skate before the official tryouts. It is a prerequisite to attend, and pass, the official tryout in order to join the Charlotte Roller Girls, but the pre-tryout training clinics are optional and there to help you work on your skills in preparation for tryouts. If you’re unsure about your skating level, we’d highly recommend attending one of these clinics to get a better idea of what is expected of you. You must RSVP for all clinics and tryouts you wish to attend.
For more information, please visit our FAQ page.
