From August 26th to November 7th, 2018 ? Sundays from 6:30 PM to 9 PM and Tuesdays from 7 PM to 9 PM ? Taz skatepark: 8931 Papineau Avenue, Montreal, QC H2M 0A5 Condition: to be at least 18 years old ?

If you want to get a head start and learn to skate, join the Whiskey Derby Montreal! https://www.facebook.com/groups/146260358748006/ Several tests (“MS”: minimum skills) will have to be passed during the session to be part of the leagues of Montreal. Roller Derby is a regulated contact sport, so there are also rules to learn and which are part of these MS! To consult them, go on the WFTDA website. We also recommend seeing a game to get an idea of ??the sport and better understand the rules, and live is even better!
