It’s a little less than a week until our second bootcamp to help prepare our next class of the Burning River Roller Girls.

Even if you did not make the first bootcamp, you are more than welcome to attend this Sunday for the second installment. And if you were at the first bootcamp, this one will cover some new material, so make sure you join us again. You will be taught skills that you will need to know for our July 1 league tryouts.

As always, if you have any interest in joining the Burning River Roller Girls, whether now or in the future, contact our recruiting director, Soul Eater, at so she can answer any of your questions and keep you updated on all the latest information about training to become a roller girl!


Sunday, May 20, 7:45 p.m. to 10 p.m.
(Be geared up and ready to go at 8 p.m.)
Brunswick Skate Station, 1261 Industrial Pkwy N # 4  Brunswick, OH 44212


Cost will be $10 for each session. You must bring a driver’s license or state ID with you.

Gear Required

Skaters must either purchase or make their own arrangements to borrow gear and skates. The usual brown rental rink skates will be available, but it’s highly recommended to have your own skates or borrow regular derby skates as they are quite a bit different. For more details on required gear, recommended brands, and locations to purchase gear, visit our website.

  • Quad skates
  • Hockey/Skateboard/Bicycle helmet
  • Knee pads
  • Elbow pads
  • Wrist guards
  • Mouth guard

At these bootcamps some of our coaches will demonstrate and have skaters practice the skills that will be tested during tryouts to become a Burning River Roller Girl.

Basic skating competency is required (if you still hold on to a wall while skating, this isn’t for you). This is NOT a skating lesson, and the skills demonstrated and practiced will be difficult to complete if attendees are unable to skate.

Our third and final bootcamp is also right around the corner, so mark your calendars and get your gear ready!


Wednesday, June 13, 7:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
(Be geared up and ready to go at 7:30 p.m.)
Pla-Mor Skating Rink in Euclid, 22466 Shore Center Drive, Cleveland, OH
