Every week the participant will learn new skills like: skating, cross overs, how to fall properly, transition, jumping, stopping, working together in a pack and so much more.
Skaters who have completed the 101 Training program become part of the Jaw Breaker team and are cleared by our coaching staff to move to Level 1. In Level 1, skaters continue to refine their basic skating skills and practice non-contact roller derby.
In level 2, players move their skills to the next phase, positional blocking with gentle contact. Players work on their skills during practises and start learning Roller Derby game strategies drills.
In level 3 the players are allowed to make full contact. With safety first the players push their skills to the max. Once the player reaches age 18 they move into the adult league.
