Learn to Skate Programs

It's nearing the end of bouting season for Atlantic Canada right now.  This means that many leagues will be shifting their focus to intake and recruitment.  If you have been interested in roller derby NOW is your chance to get involved!

I have compiled a list of the leagues in Atlantic Canada, any open house/info night event details, and contact information for the league.  Unsure if there is a league in your area?  Check out our League Directory page for more details. 
Each league does their learn to skate process differently.  Some do a 3 month graduated program, some host weekend skills camps, some intakes are ongoing and some only accept skaters up until a certain point in the program.  Please contact each individual league to find out how to get involved. 

If you run a learn to skate program you should take a look at our blog post on recruiting and retaining new skaters!
