Learn to Skate with The Bay Area Derby

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, BAD’s Reckless Roller’s boot camps are postponed until it is safe to skate in groups and indoors again. In the meantime, we are offering outdoor 101 skate sessions twice a month in West Oakland and/or San Francisco. 

Learn the basics or hone your skills with the help of rotating BAD skaters. Two skaters will coach a two hour long session outside in a designated, paved area. 

In compliance with COVID-19 safety protocol, availability is limited to 9 skaters per session. Upcoming sessions are posted here. To reserve your spot, please click on the Wellness Living link.

No prior skate experience is required, but you must have your own skates and a helmet to participate. We highly encourage other safety gear, like knee pads, elbow pads, mouth guards and wrist guards. 18 years and older can sign up to skate!
