Spring Girls Roller Derby League

The Green Mountain Derby Dames have expanded their love of roller derby to help create the Minor Catastrophes, Vermont’s first girls’ junior roller derby team. Each week girls will train with veteran skaters from the Green Mountain Derby Dames learning all the basic skills of skating on quad roller skates: skating, stopping, agility, speed and endurance. Girls with skating ability from beginning to advanced can participate. The Minor Catastrophes will have a chance to skate in a halftime exhibition game at a spring GMDD bout. Check out the Essex Junction Rec Page for more info. Excited about junior derby and you already want more?! Great news, there will also be a summer junior derby camp!
