New to roller derby? Check out one of Duke City Roller Derby's Bootcamp sessions to begin our Fresh Meat Program. The Bootcamp usually occurs on a Saturday and Sunday. We will teach you the basics of skating to get your feet underneath you before you start practicing. After the weekend, you'll enter our Fresh Meat Program, where you'll learn everything you need to know about roller derby. Fresh Meat skaters practice two times per week for about 10 weeks before graduating into the league and getting drafted for a home team. 

Stay tuned for details on our next Bootcamp and Like us on Facebook for all the latest updates.
