THE SAN DIEGO EARTHQUAKES
Welcome to The San Diego Earthquakes Roller Derby Team!
YOU MUST ATTEND A RECRUITMENT NIGHT BEFORE ATTENDING PRACTICE. Recruitment nights are the first Monday (7:30-8:30 PM) and Tuesday (6-7) of the month. No cost for recruitment night and plan on skating! We have a three tiered process for making the team:
1. Boot Camp-works on passing the WFTDA skills test skating skills only, no hitting. Skills test is generally administered the first Monday of the month.
2. Fresh Meat-Congrats you passed your skills and will be transferred to the Fresh Meat group and Fresh Meat Team Snap! This is where you work on your derby skills like hitting. A fresh meat assessment will be given usually once a month.
3. Full League Member-you have passed your Fresh Meat Assessment and are now a full fledged Earthquake! You can now play in games and everything!
BOOT CAMP INFO
Boot Camp cost: $50 a month including two practices a week and unlimited public skating sessions to practice your skills. (Practices are occasionally cancelled due to event bookings)
Gear: Gear is not required for Boot Camp but strongly recommended. We have skates and limited gear to borrow at no extra cost to you. Also we have a fully stocked Pro Shop and a very knowledgeable staff!
Team Snap: This is our scheduling App! You can download it on your phone and see all our practices, events, and even pay your monthly dues! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your email to get an invite. Team Snap does require you to create an account.
Monday Practices 7:30-8:30 PM (this practice is usually run by our league head coach Brett! With over 15 years of coaching and skating experience and as a current member of USA Men’s Roller Derby, he will teach you all the basic skating skills you need!)
Tuesday Practices 6-7 PM (this practice is a shared practice with our Skate School program, where we usually work on 1-3 specific skills to try to master them. This practice is usually coached by one of our skilled coaches or team members)
The biggest thing we want to emphasize is skating and having fun! If you can only make one night a week or are having trouble committing fully, come try it out, see if you like it! If you are considering transferring to our league from another, please contact email@example.com to speed up the process!
