The South East Sask. Roller Derby Association (SESRDA) has introduced a new introductory roller skating program in Estevan.
The program is geared towards female adults. It is not just for those who want to join the roller derby program; it is also for those who want to learn the basics of roller skating in a safe environment, so they can skate this summer with confidence.
“Roller skating is a fantastic way to exercise,” the SESRDA said in a press release. “It’s low impact, offers a high caloric burn of anywhere from 400 to 600 calories per hour … and, it involves all major muscle groups.”
A free introductory night will be on Sunday, March 30 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Estevan, starting at 6 p.m. Regular classes will then occur on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 6 p.m., until the end of June. There will be a total of 29 sessions.
Skates and pads are available for use on a first-come, first-serve basis, but participants are encouraged to bring a helmet, as the SESRDA's supply of helmets is limited.
Equipment will have to be purchased by the end of April.
