ARG Spring Skills Workshops and Tryouts

Planning on trying out for the Atlanta Rollergirls? Or are you looking to take your derby game up to the next level? Brush up on your skills!

The Spring Skills Workshops are built with aspiring rollergirls and seasoned skaters in mind. We’ll be doing a series of workshops of important derby skills with trainers dedicated to both novice and advanced skaters for anyone interested in becoming an Atlanta Rollergirl or honing their derby skating skills!

All of these workshops are open to ladies 18+. The advanced track will feature trainers from Atlanta’s internationally ranked top 10 team, the Dirty South Derby Girls, breaking down techniques for advanced skills. The novice track will focus on the solid skills needed to build a derby skater – perfect for those new to derby skating, looking to perfect basic techniques and aspiring to be an Atlanta Rollergirl.

Workshops will be held at 1721 Wilwat Drive, Norcross, Ga., for a $15 workshop fee per skater. Skaters must have their own skates and mouthguard, we have pads/helmets to lend if you don’t have your own!
