The Lowcountry Highrollers are inviting local girls between the ages of 12 and 17 to strap on some skates, pads, and a helmet for the first ever Junior Roller Derby Camp at the end of the month.

Do you want to get athletic, stay healthy and fit, and play the fastest growing sport among women in the United States? Do you want to learn teamwork, leadership, and make a difference in your community? Then now is the time to sign up, as there are only 30 spots available for this awesome opportunity.

Camp activities will include: skating skills; endurance training; cross training; strength and flexibility training; derby rules; safety tips; discussions of health, nutrition, and body image; DIY fashions; and crafts. The organizers and facilitators of the camp include teachers, mothers, scientists, counselors, and other skilled professionals in the community. All have been pre-screened, and all are LCHR skaters.

LCHR Junior Roller Derby Summer Camp 2011 will run from June 27th - July 1st, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hot Wheels Skating Center on James Island. The cost is $125 plus $20 for USARS insurance coverage.

Please take note that:

  • Skaters must have their own safety gear (helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist-guards, and mouth-guards). 
  • The cost for the camp includes skate rental for the week and an open skate session from 1-5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29th. 
  • All campers need to be ready to work hard and have fun!
