Latest updates on our Coronavirus response

UPDATED AS OF: MARCH 26TH 2020

Hello, Rollas! As we are still unable to offer classes in person for the time being, like many other fitness businesses we’ve already made the move to providing our membership with more online content. We are getting ready to step that up for April for our monthly members, and we want to open this opportunity up to you as well.

Come join the Rolla Home Club!

  • Weekly skill tutorials & challenges by video; all things that can be done in your kitchen, foyer, or parking garage!
  • Curated rollerskating tutorials, videos, and more from around the web…
  • AND… exclusive access to the Roller Derby Athletics Fitness app! We’ll be on the app together as a group, and we’ll be working on our at-home fitness together from afar!

A little more about the RDA Fitness app –
This isn’t just for roller derby players (although it’s GREAT for that). The strength, stability, and balance you can build from Booty’s workouts are great for any skater. The workouts will be selected and scheduled for you, helping give you more structure than the “youtube workout video overload” many of us are currently burning out on. You can do them any time (or skip entirely – no pressure!), and you don’t have to think about anything. Just watch the videos and get on it 🙂

The new “Rolla Home Club” monthly membership is $40 per month. If you feel like contributing more (bless your heart!), we can accommodate that too! Contact us at hello @ rollaskateclub.com to sign up.

We really appreciate your support through this crisis so far. We know everyone has their own challenges to deal with, and we want to contribute by being a bright spot in your day as much as we can! We are looking forward to continuing to make the best of this isolation, together.

Apart but together with you in spirit,
Booty & Lulu  (and the whole Rolla Skate Club team)

FROM MARCH 16TH 2020:

Following today’s guidance from the Prime Minister and provincial health, we are taking the tough steps we need to, in order to do our part and protect each other. We want you to know that, just like always, we’ve got your back! 

All Rolla classes and events are cancelled until further notice.

We know that both social interaction and being active are incredibly important to our mental and physical wellbeing, especially during stressful times like this, so we have a few programs up our sleeves to help keep you rolling.

  • We will be loaning out our rental rollerskates for those who want to enjoy the incredible week of weather we’re forecast to have. This will be free for skaters on a monthly membership with us, and for $25 for 2 weeks for non-members. Rollerskates can be picked up this evening (Monday) between 6-7:30pm at Rolla Skate Club, or tomorrow (Tuesday the 17th) from the Rolla Skate Truck at Science World. Just show up and we’ll be able to hook you up with a pair. 
  • We are working on lots of online resources to help you stay skating, including some great members-only exclusive stuff! Expect tutorials, off-skate workouts, on-skate challenges, dance routines and more.

If you have booked a private event or bought a ticket to one of our own hosted events, we will be in contact with you directly regarding a refund, or deferral, for events taking place in the next 2 weeks.  Our Rollerskate Festival scheduled for April 4 is postponed and we look forward to producing this event in the future. 

Many of you will have questions about what happens to your memberships, progressive courses, class passes, billing, and more. We promise we are working on solutions and will have more detailed information for you soon. 

We are committed to supporting our Rolla team even as our financial future looks uncertain. This is so important to us, and we appreciate your support!

We started this crazy project called Rolla Skate Club to empower women, lift them up, and show them how strong they already are. We know each of you will be showing strength in your own way during these unprecedented times, and we’re here to support you, share in each others’ hardships and small victories, and generally try to keep the wheels rolling on our wonderful community. 

Stay well, and stay tuned.
