WHAT'S THE PROCESS?
Choose from among our Class Packages for proven safe and effective Learn-To-Skate, Fitness Skating and Skills & Drills programs that you can start individually or add to what you already offer.
‘Start Out’ Learn-to-Skate Class Package includes Instructor Training for two individuals, class and program materials, and the curriculum for 12 progressive classes that bring 80% of folks from zero to minimum skills with just one 12-week session. Working with thousands of women since 2007, we have perfected the method for teaching people to safely skate in the roller derby style. This is the ideal program for roller derby leagues looking for a consistently effective way to teach their new recruits how to skate in a safe and fun way and for roller rinks to get more adults on skates. We consider this the prerequisite to other classes.
‘Roll Out’ Fitness Skating Class Package includes Instructor Training for two and all class and program materials, including the jewel in our crown, the 24-week Fitness Skating program designed by professional group exercise instructors, personal trainer with specific knowledge of roller skating and fitness, and women with a combined 50 years' experience in roller derby-style skating. Each class plan is designed to provide a full-body, balanced High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout that incorporates strength and cardio into a non-stop one-hour on-skates class. Participants LOVE this one for its calorie burn (biofeedback devices have shown more than 1,000 calories an hour) as much as the no deliberate falling. Hooray for knees! This is the class that bridges the gap between roller derby and middle America – awesome folks from 18-75 who just want a fun way to get their exercise on!
‘Derby Lite’ Skills & Drills Class Package includes Instructor Training for two plus program and curriculum materials for a 12-week session that moves progressively through the basic skills of falling, stopping, maneuvering and stride as well as adding in more roller derby-esque drills. Multi-level modifications and a robust master drills list ensure every class all year long is both easy to plan and slightly different. Many women coming from or planning to go to competitive leagues like this class for its off-skates dynamic warm-ups, continuing skills lessons, partner and pack work, and fun games and relays, all of which are included in the package. There is never impact in ‘Derby Lite.’
DERBY LITE Instructor Certification is also available, above and beyond the Instructor Training included in each Class Package, for an additional fee. Individuals may take video of themselves performing the Skating Skills Assessment and conducting warm-ups with a group to show leadership skills and knowledge. DL:HQ will evaluate your videos, provide specific feedback, and when satisfied with competency, present a formal Certificate which allows the designation, DERBY LITE Certified Fitness Skating Instructor, CFSI, in program materials and personal signatures.
DERBY LITE Class Packages put everything we’ve learned since 2007 into turnkey options that makes it easy for folks with derby skills, a facility, a love of skating and an entrepreneurial spirit to make a nice part-time income from launching classes in their hometowns.
