Fun times at the open skate!

After almost three hours they still look happy! In front we have our “sneaker derby” players in team baby blue against team pink, and behind them the skaters -we had to split the group in two, because we couldn’t fit them all on the tracks at once!

We had a great open skate event last Saturday -thank you SO MUCH for joining!

We had roughly 40 people practising basic skating skills, learning the basics open roller derby rules, playing some “sneaker derby” and hearing about Helsinki Roller Derby and Helsinki Power Danger / Tampere Rolling Bros and about our intensive beginners course -all this in three hours! Crazy, right?!?

Our coaches were amazed -these people learned to skate in no time, and they were doing super clever moves on their very first jams! One of our FTP coaches said it well: “we want all these guys on our course -if they got this far in just couple of hours, I really want to see them after a couple more!”. Couldn’t agree more.

 Our course for the spring begins soon (first session 30th of January), and there are still couple of spots open in the course -sign up now and join us! (Just e-mail us at hrd.freshmeat@gmail.com!)
