Recruitment Night and Bootcamp/Tryouts

Are you dreaming of being a Dame? Now is your chance! We are so excited to invite you to a recruitment night we have scheduled on Monday April 14th, 2014 at 7 pm at Coachlite Skate Center at 1291 Bryn Mawr Roselle, IL 60172. You are invited to watch the Dames during their regularly scheduled practice and scrimmage to see what Roller Derby is all about. Attendance is recommended but not required.

Tryouts/Boot Camp will begin April 28th, 2014 and run for two weeks through May 7, 2014. Tryouts/Boot Camp will be during the Dames regular practice times: Monday nights from 7-10 pm and Wednesday nights from 8:15-10:15 pm. Participation in the boot camp will require full roller derby gear, including a multi-hit helmet, mouth guard, wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads. Quad skates can be rented from Coachlite, or you can bring your own. We will have very limited loaner gear available while you get situated but purchasing your own gear is highly recommended. You will be filling out some mandatory paperwork and waivers to participate in the program, so please bring a photo ID (you must be over 18) and your insurance card if you have one.

Qualifying participants from Tryouts/Boot Camp will then be invited to participate in the 12 week Fresh Meat program starting May 12, 20134

This is a general overview of the program. Please bring all your questions to the recruitment night on April 14, 2014 or email dupagederbydames@gmail.com for more information.

We hope to see you there!
