Learn to skate and train with the Mad Rollin’ Dolls this summer!

This summer, Mad Rollin’ Dolls and Madison Wreckers Roller Derby are teaming up to provide top-notch skating instruction in a super supportive environment – for both brand new beginners and those looking to level up!

SUMMER SESSION STARTS JUNE 13 (through August 17)

Our summer session is open to skaters of all (or no!) skill levels. Learn to Skate (Level 1) is non-contact and will teach the skills you need to be comfortable with wheels on your feet. Skate to Learn (Level 2) is a more advanced contact session for those with prior skating experience. Come train with some of the best roller derby athletes around and learn everything from basic skating skills to game play and strategy.

Cost will be $100 for the full session.
