The Mob City Goons (Level I)
New Skater Camps are a session-based program designed to welcome newcomers (ages 7-18) to the joy of roller skating and prepare them for the sport of roller derby. Coaches work with skaters one-on-one or in small groups to focus on fundamentals of skating, stopping, falling, roller sport safety, goal setting,and a basic understanding of roller derby game play. New Skater Camps are zero contact, focusing on skating skills, safety, and control on skates. Because athletes develop at varying paces, a skater may attend as many Goons sessions as they or their family choose to. Goons participants will be assessed regularly for readiness to progress into our Punks program.
Whether a child aspires to play competitive roller derby, or just wants a place to grow comfortable on their skates in a positive, welcoming, and judgment-free space, the Mob City Goons is an excellent place to start. Mob City Goons practice Sunday afternoons at the Northgate Community Center.
