2016 Skate Clinics

A lot of hard work goes into the making of a rollergirl. Whether you are an experienced skater, a newbie at your league or the future of the Atlanta Rollergirls, this clinic season has something for you!

ARG will be hosting four skate clinics open to all skaters and rollergirl hopefuls. The focus of the clinics will be on endurance, agility, and gameplay as well as WFTDA minimum skills for ARG tryouts in July. The clinics will offer two tracks, track one will focus on beginner skills needed to tryout for ARG or to build your rec league or newbie skills at your own league. Track two will focus on skills needed to progress your skating skills at your home league.

Clinic One – Saturday, May 14th, 1:30-4:00pm
Beginner track: stride, endurance, falls and stops
Advanced track: foot work and advanced stops (powerslide, hockey stops, backwards plows, D turns and more)
