It’s a way to build confidence. It’s an inclusive community. Oh, and it’s great exercise too.
The Denver Roller Dolls are proud to present the Glitterdome Gladiators, a group of fearsome young skaters dedicated to becoming good athletes and better people. Trained by the Denver Roller Doll skaters, the youngsters are taught skating basics and roller derby strategy in a safe and supportive environment. Having role models is important, especially for young women, and parents of our Gladiators have reported increased confidence as a result of the positive mentorship and increased athletic ability of our young athletes.
We train girls and boys (ages 6-17) at our practice facility, The Glitterdome.
Practices are held at the Glitterdome (3600 Wynkoop St Unit A3 Denver, Co 80216) every Saturday during the season.
The first session, for level 1 skaters, is from 9:00-10am. The second session, for level 2 & 3 skaters, goes from 10:00-12:00pm. Skaters may be dropped off after 8:30 am and parents are expected to pick up their children no later than 12:30 pm. A once per quarter scrimmage is typically held at the end of the season, either at The Glitterdome or another local league’s facility.
Be sure to pick your Gladiator up promptly at the end of their practice time. To learn more about the program please message us.
