On Wed. 4/6 and Sat 4/9, CNYRD hosted two open house events in preparation for our new skater training series which starts Wed 4/13/11. We had a great turnout with 25+ new girls and a couple of guys ready to start skating.

IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO GET INVOLVED!!!!
Basic skating class starts this week on Wednesday from 7-10pm, and runs Wednesdays 7-10p and Saturdays 10a-12p for 4 weeks at JFK Arena, 500 W Embargo St in Rome NY. The cost is $30 for the month. Rental gear (skates, helmets, pads, etc) can be used in any combination needed for an additional $5 per use.
Once basic skating ends on May 7th, the same time slots will be used for New Skater Training running for 12 weeks, the goal being to have all participants pass the WFTDA minimum skills requirements at the end of the 12 weeks, and hopefully be drafted onto a home team by August! The costs stay the same throughout, although those who move on to New Skater Training will also be expected to purchase their own insurance and gear relatively soon into the training.

Our next opportunity to learn from the ground up will start in September 2011, but we always accept transfer skaters from other leagues and those with prior non-derby skating experience if we can safely jump them into practices.
