Head Coaches Angela Stricker, angela.stricker@mail0.tcrollerderby.com Brandy Gallagher, gallaghebr@tcaps.net Necessary GearAll participants are required to wear the following protective gear: Helmet Wrist guards Elbow pads Knee pads Mouth guard 4 wheel (quad) roller skates (not rollerblades) All equipment, EXCEPT roller skates, is available at local retailers including Zumiez, Dunham’s, and Target as well as online. However, appropriate junior roller derby skates really need to be purchased online. Many of our junior skaters have Reidell Darts or R3, but if you have wider feet you may prefer Rock GT-50. Both skates are excellent choices for an entry level skate. **The most important feature to consider when purchasing skates is the toe stop. For junior derby, a threaded, adjustable toe stop is necessary for skills.Please note: Most locally available roller skates are not structurally sound enough for the drills required in junior roller derby and/or worn parts cannot be easily replaced or upgraded. Chicago Skates found at Wal-Mart are NOT recommended. The Plastic toe stop styled roller derby skates and wheels have very limited durability and require replacing the entire skate instead of just wheels or toe stops as equipment wears down from use.Please contact Coach Angela Stricker or Coach Brandy Gallagher with any questions before ordering. angela.stricker@mail0.tcrollerderby.com Skates: LowPriceSkates.com Pads: BikeAhead.com Participation Fee Cost $50.00 for each 4-Week Session Reduced fees are unavailable for this offering.
