Beginners' courses

Join Kallio Rolling Rainbow’s beginners’ course!

What is it?

It’s a month-long, 10 session crash course to the basic skating skills, after which you can continue to practice competitive roller derby in Kallio Rolling Rainbow or you can just continue skating for your own pleasure and dazzle your friends at the skating rink or roller disco.

Where and when?

The practices take place at Pasila UH&FIX Sportshall (Radiokatu 22) from 12th April onwards. The course consists of two weekly sessions, on Fridays at 6–8 pm and on Saturdays at 9–11 am.

Who is this for?

Anyone, really. Our coaches will tailor the groups and the content according to the participants’ age, skills, interests and progress.

Roller derby is a contact sport played on an oval track where two teams compete against each other. Points are scored by a jammer in each team by passing the opposing team skaters. Other players try to prevent the opposing jammer from scoring and help their own jammer get past opposing players.
