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.
