Have you always wanted to learn to skate, but didn't know where to start? Or maybe you skated when you were a kid, then bought skates during the pandemic and found it's not as easy as it used to be to stay upright? Join skaters from Salt Lake Roller Derby and learn how to skate safely and have fun on eight wheels. You'll learn about S.A.S.S. -- Skating: Agility, Stability, and Skills -- as well as roller skates and their components, safety equipment and how to fit it properly, and how to gain speed and stop. Along the way, you'll learn a little about the history of roller derby, get to know the rules of play, pick your own derby name, and have the chance to visit a live roller derby bout!
