The Royal Windsor Rollergirls are pleased to introduce the Curfew Skate Crew, a junior roller derby league aimed at girls aged 11 to 17. Named after the famous Curfew tower at Windsor Castle, the junior league will be coached by 5 Windsor ‘A’ team coaches.
Sessions will be held on Saturday mornings at Charters Leisure Centre in Ascot, we’ll teach basic skating skills before progressing to more advanced roller derby techniques.
Saftey will be key and all participants will not only need their own quad roller skates, but will need to wear knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, a helmet and a mouth-guard. We’ll be holding an initial introductory session where parents/guardians can meet the coaches, find out more about roller derby and the Curfew Skate Crew and get equipment advice.
What is Roller Derby?
Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short jams in which both teams designate a scoring player (the “jammer”) who scores points by passing members of the opposing team. Both teams attempt to assist their own jammer whilst stopping the opposing jammer, playing both offense and defense simultaneously.
Modern roller derby is an international sport dominated by all-female amateur teams with a growing number of male, co-ed, and junior roller derby teams.
