Succesful challenge for the first MTLRD training camp!

On February 17, 18 and 19, 2012 Montreal Roller Derby and the New Skids On The Block welcomed more than 150 skaters, coaches and referees in their first edition of their training camp. It was a great success in the quality of the advice provided during the various workshops, the organizational level and the friendly atmosphere during and outside the classes. Participants came from all across Canada, the United States, and even France, and left enriched with a multitude of tips and tricks to pass on to their own league.
