New Skaters

Sometimes it’s hard to figure out where to begin when you decide to start your skating journey. We hope this page is helpful in giving you some direction so you can start skating with us soon!

New Skater Recruitment Program

Every year, Bux-Mont hosts a recruitment event that’s open to anyone looking to join our league. The program is 8 weeks of skating/derby basics. At the end of the program, you will be tested on the skills you learned over the course of the 8 weeks. We highly recommend practicing outside of designated practice days in order to pass! The tested material can be found HERE.

There are also videos created by WFTDA showing each skill and how to perform them HERE.

We understand that WFTDA no longer requires that we have a minimum skills requirement test, but it is important to us that all of our skaters are fully prepared to take the track with the same basic skills as all other skaters. This is for not only your safety, but the safety of all of our skaters!

Keep an eye on our Events page/our social media to see when out next new skater recruitment event will take place!
