It’s More Than Just a Game
It’s a way to build confidence. It’s an inclusive community. Oh, and it’s great exercise too.
Denver Roller Derby is proud to present: Major Turbulence, a group of fearsome young skaters dedicated to becoming good athletes and better people. Trained by Denver Roller Derby skaters, the youngsters are taught skating basics and roller derby strategy in a safe and supportive environment. Having role models is important, especially for young women, and parents of our skaters have reported increased confidence as a result of the positive mentorship and increased athletic ability of our young athletes.
We train girls and boys (ages 6-17) at our practice facility, The Glitterdome.
Practices are held at the Glitterdome (3600 Wynkoop St Unit A3 Denver, CO 80216) every Thursday from 5 – 6:30pm and Saturday at 10am during the season.
The first session, for level 1 skaters, is from 9:00-10am. The second session, for level 2 & 3 skaters, goes from 11:00am-1:00pm. Skaters may be dropped off after 8:30 am and parents are expected to pick up their children no later than 12:30 pm. A once per quarter scrimmage is typically held at the end of the season, either at The Glitterdome or another local league’s facility.
Be sure to pick your Gladiator up promptly at the end of their practice time. To learn more about the program please message us.
