Get Ready to Derby!

If you are new to derby and want to try things out to see if the sport is really for you – check out our skate camp! Our skate camp will be full of skaters who are new to the sport. We will teach you everything you need to know: derby form, balance, falls, starts, stops, weaving, stepping, hopping, pack skating, positional blocking, and much more!

Skate Camp is a six-week camp offered in two-hour sessions with a required orientation meeting prior to the first session. The cost is $36. $35 to the league to help pay for the facilities and $1 for a mouth guard. All other equipment is provided.

Skate camp schedule:
Sept. 14 4p – 5p Orientation
Sept. 21 6p – 8p Session 1
Sept. 28 4p – 6p Session 2
(not required) Oct. 4 Home Bout 6p – 9p We encourage you to volunteer at this bout.
Oct. 5 4p – 6p Session 3
Oct. 12 4p – 6p Session 4
Oct. 19 6p – 8p Session 5
Oct. 26 4p – 6p Session 6

Our Skate Camp Goals:
Teach the basics of roller derby to anyone interested in becoming a skater or referee.
Get a good workout.
Have Fun!

For those interested in joining the league as a skater, this camp is a starting point for becoming scrimmage-level eligible. Six weeks is not quite enough to get completely ready to scrimmage. After completing this camp, you will be encouraged to join the Fresh Meat Program to further build your skills and eventually join the league as a full member.

For those interested in joining the league as a referee, this camp will lead into further personalized training with our league referees.

This camp is open to men and women. Although our team is made up of female skaters, we welcome men to get involved in other areas such as referee functions (and have several that help already). You must be 18 or older.

Please register by filling out the following form and submitting it. Can’t wait to see you!

We will be kicking off our 2014 season with a BLOOD DRIVE!
PVBRDA will be donating blood and would LOVE it if you took the time to come out and donate as well. Lets save lives together!

Blood donation. It’s about an hour of your time. It’s About Life
Four easy steps to donate blood: medical history, quick physical, donation and snacks.
The actual blood donation usually takes about 10 minutes. The entire process – from the time you sign in to the time you leave – takes about an hour.
More than 4.5 million patients need blood transfusions each year in the U.S. and Canada.
43,000 pints: amount of donated blood used each day in the U.S. and Canada.
Someone needs blood every two seconds.
Only 37 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood – less than 10 percent do annually**.
About 1 in 7 people entering a hospital need blood.
One pint of blood can save up to three lives.
Healthy adults who are at least 17 years old, and at least 110 pounds may donate about a pint of blood—the most common form of donation—every 56 days, or every two months, depending on iron levels. Females receive 53 percent of blood transfusions; males receive 47 percent.
46.5 gallons: amount of blood you could donate if you begin at age 17 and donate every 56 days (depending on iron levels) until you reach 79 years old.
10 pints: amount of blood in the body of an average adult.
A newborn baby has about one cup of blood in his body.
The rarest blood type is the one not on the shelf when it’s needed by a patient.
