Adults (over 14+ years) – If you are new to rollerskating or starting up after a long absence we recommend starting with our Intro to Rollerskating class. This semi-private class (max 10 skaters per coach) covers all the basics with one-on-one coach support so you can get rolling safely. The class price includes rollerskate and protective gear rental if you need it (or you’re welcome to bring your own!) Click the class in the calendar above to register or GET IN TOUCH if you have questions. Once you’ve completed an Intro class feel free to drop into any of our Signature Classes (more info below). Not quite ready to put on 8 wheels? Check out our Ready to Rolla off-skates class to start building those muscles and balance.

** Ready to Rolla – This off-skate fitness class is designed to help skaters of all levels to build the strength needed to feel more confident on wheels! Coach Booty Quake from Roller Derby Athletics has trained thousands of skaters to be their best on 8 wheels, by training smarter in their socks 🙂 This is *not* a cardio/conditioning class – you’ll work hard and break a sweat, but you won’t be doing aerobics. Appropriate challenges provided for any fitness / skating level.
So how do I choose which class to attend? Once you’ve completed an Intro to Rollerskating class your coach will suggest which classes would be best for you. We offer drop in options for all of our classes (excluding progressives and kids/teens) and if you purchase a monthly membership or multi-class pass it’s valid for all (including Intro to RollerSkating) so you can mix and match. The Rolla and Rolla Workout class format builds upon your existing skills and introduces new ones at each session so you can learn at your own pace – but there’s always a new challenge!
Still have questions? We’d be happy to answer them! Get In Touch and we’ll do our best to reply within 24 business hours. Our mission is to build an empowered community of women (+ friends) on wheels here in Vancouver – we can’t wait to roll with you!
