Full Summary: Learn the basics of roller skating.

We will be taking attendance at all practices and requiring that each skater fill out a virtual Covid symptom checklist form before each practice. An asymptomatic Covid test is required within 7 days of a practice. We will send the forms out before each practice. All practices will be social distanced (minimum of 6ft), which will be marked with chalk/cones. Each practice will have no more than 10 skaters, including the coach.

This semester’s open enrollment practices are scheduled for:
Sunday, Jan. 31 from 3-5 p.m.* @ Peter’s Parking Deck (basketball courts)
Sunday, Feb. 7 from 3-5 p.m.* @ Peter’s Parking Deck (basketball courts)
*Eastern Time

At open enrollment, we teach you the basics of roller skating! This includes how to start, stop, fall, balance, and proper skating form. We all start somewhere, and we hope you choose to learn with us! All you need is a good attitude, a water bottle, and to pass the GT Covid symptoms checklist. Make sure to come 10-15 minutes early to get geared up.

Due to Covid regulations, we are limited to 8 new skaters each open enrollment session, therefore, skaters must RSVP to attend open enrollment. The first 8 people who RSVP will receive confirmation of their standing, and additional RSVPs will go on a waitlist. If you RSVP and later find that you cannot attend, you must let us know ASAP so that another skater can fill your spot. After the first open enrollment session (1/31), we will ask which skaters wish to return. Those who do not will have their spot passed on to the next person on the waitlist for the next open enrollment session (2/7).

If you do not have your own gear (skates, helmet, and protective pads), you can borrow some at these two sessions. Skaters who wish to join YJRD can check out gear for the semester, and they MUST do it at the end of their first open enrollment session. Checking out gear will require a security deposit of $20.
