We’re Back! MTL Roller Derby’s Training Camp!

After taking a year hiatus, MTL’s Roller Derby Camp is back…! MTLRD is proud to be the home to 9 of the recently selected Team Canada members and they, along with the Montreal New Skids on the Block (WFTDA#15) are ready to make you sweat, expand your derby knowledge and fast-track your way to improving your game both on and off the flat track!

But wait…This year we’ve added a twist! Along with the 2-day intensive roller derby camp taught by world-class derby players, there will be a Public All-Star bout with 20 campers who will be selected by the coaches to play along side the 9 Team Canada skaters as their teammates! WHAAAT!

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.
