Our Junior program meets Wednesdays 5-7 PM for 12 weeks at a time in Florence, MA and is open to youth aged 13-17, all genders.
Our coaches are active PVRD skaters and officials. We are committed to training youth at all skill levels to play roller derby in a supportive and safe environment. New participants will begin with non-contact basic skating skills, including starts, stops, proper stance, and safe falls, and move up through contact skills. Group drills are tailored to class composition.
Each 12-week session costs $120 and there are typically three 12-week sessions in a year (spring, summer, fall). We welcome participants partway through sessions as well. Please contact us to find out if our program is currently in session.
Loaner gear for the program costs an additional $50 and includes quad skates, knee pads, elbow pads, and wristguards. Participants will need to supply their own helmets and mouthguards.
Graduates of Pioneer Valley Roller Derby’s Junior program can transfer into the league’s adult program once they turn 18.
