Once again it’s time for Open Skate with Dock City Rollers!
Open Skate is Dock City Rollers’ way to open the doors to the wonderful world of roller derby, and to spread the derby love!
Open Skate is not a training session with joint and organized exercises but more like an opportunity to roll and socialize. We welcome the derby players, pleasure riders and everyone who is curious about the sport.
See it as a chance to improve your technique , practice that specialmove you’re having trouble with, or as a first time to put on a pair of Quads.
And also as a way to get to know and socialize with other skaters in town!
The only requirement is that you show respect for other participants, by not skating in a way that put yourself or others in danger, and wear the following equipment:
Everyone must wear a helmet and protection for elbows, wrists and knees. To not leave marks on the floor, all the knee pads must be covered (eg with a pair of cropped tights ),
toestops and wheels must be bright / of a type that does not leave marks. If you use your outdoor wheels, these should be well cleaned.
We also recommend that everyone use mouthguards and expect that everyone who owns one uses it.
Mouthguard can be found in skate shops and common sports shops.
For members of the DCR and participants in DCR ‘s freshmeat course the event is free, others pay a 20 kr entrance fee.
You don’t have your own equipment but are eager to try? We have a limited number of gear that those without their own equipment can take turns with.
Do not miss this, come, roll and talk derby with us!
Can’t make it? Don’t worry, you’ll get a new chance on november 27th and/or december 11th!
