Roller derby camp coming to Cowichan’s Island Savings Centre

Roller derby is coming to the Island Savings Centre this Saturday.

From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., hopefuls ages 10-18 can learn the basics of the fast-growing sport at the “Raw Meat” camp.

Instruction will include the basics of skating, the breakdown of the rules, and the object of the game, with on-and off-track lessons and a trip to the pool, as well as dry-land training.

Full gear is required: helmet, mouth guard, elbow pads, knee pads, wrist guards and quad skates. Some equipment will be provided.

The cost of the camp is $55. To register or for more information, call 250-748-7529 or email
