Not interested in skating?

We have a range of participation options that keep shoe soles firmly on the ground: officiating, team statistics, coaching, announcing, administrative/records keeping, and volunteering.

What should I expect from Open Enrollment practice?

Our Open Enrollment practices are NO CONTACT; hitting comes later, although we will teach you how to fall properly. We focus on the basics – starting, stopping, stance – to help you build the foundation of skills you will need in order to advance as a skater.

What equipment do I need/what should I bring with me? No skating experience or equipment necessary to join us at Open Enrollment. We’ll teach you everything you need to know and you can use our skates and gear while you learn. We have a limited amount of extra skates, pads, and helmets to share – first come, first served so come early!

Just bring yourself (wear comfy workout clothes!), a big bottle of water (we’re going to make you sweat) and a willingness to learn and try something new.

*PLEASE NOTE: for safety and liability reasons, no one under the age of 18 is allowed to attend/observe our practices without prior authorization from our trainers.

If you’re just dying to get on skates, remember that you can skate at Carver Rec Center during Open Skate (Fridays 5-8 and Sundays 1-6pm) until the Dames re-open recruitment.
