Beginner & Intermediates Bootcamp with the Bears

banner_bootcamp

Bear City’s A Team, the WFTDA 20, reached their incredible goal this year – qualifying for the WFTDA D1 Playoffs! We don’t want to deprive you of the accumulated knowledge of five playoffs in a row!

To bring this knowledge to you, we’re offering a Bootcamp for Beginners and Intermediates on the weekend of the 17th and 18th of November! All skaters (female and non-binary) with or without their MST are welcome!

This is what you’ll get
We will offer parallel sessions, which are tailored to your skill level, regardless if you’ve passed your MST.

On both days, there are on-skates sessions and off-skates seminars with lots of exercises and tips and tricks. On-skates, you will discover new jamming, blocking and packwork strategies. Off-track seminars include: Basic Rules Knowledge, Basic Strategies and Fitness & Stretching for Derby. We will also offer a beginners seminar to help you prepare for the MST.

Finally, there is a scrimmage, White Witches vs. Black Banshees, where our skaters who already have their MST can apply their newly learned techniques and strategies. For those without an MST yet, there are two options: You can watch and ask our bouttenders any questions about specific situations, rules, and strategies, or you can try out a NSO position together with our experience NSOs – because we all know, without our beloved Officials our sport would not be possible!

A link to the detailed timetable will be sent to you after registration and payment. Sessions will run from approximately 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM on Saturday, November 17, and from approximately 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sunday, November 18. The seminars and sessions are held in English, but we can provide additional details in German, when needed.
