CANCELLED – Rookie and Officials Clinic

November 01 @ 10:00am - Xanadu - 54 Commerce Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22923

The Charlottesville Derby Dames are hosting a Rookie Clinic for new skaters who want personal feedback and the opportunity meet and skate with other rookie skaters. There will be Charlottesville trainers (in a 1:5 ratio of trainers to rookie skaters) facilitating and providing specific, written feedback for each rookie participant. Video footage will also be taken and made available to participants.

In parallel with the rookie clinic, we are also offering a learn-to-officiate clinic targeted at veteran skaters (offered for free in the interest of relieving the officiating shortage), so all bouting members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Here is the sign-up form ; get your friends together and come join us!

Where: Charlottesville Derby Dames practice space, 54 Commerce Dr, Ruckersville, VA
