LVRG's New Recreational Membership- Join Now!

So, you think you can hit just as hard as any other roller girl, can skate better than most and have what it takes to be a lean mean jamming machine, but you can’t make three days a week practice?  Well the great news is that you still can be a roller girl because the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls (LVRG) have now opened up a new Recreational member status.

After passing the WFTDA minimum skills requirement, you can enjoy all of the benefits of being a roller girl, but without the attendance requirement expected of our full members.  LVRG currently practices on Sundays (4:45-6:45p), Mondays (7pm-10pm) and Thursdays (8-10p.m). The new Recreational status allows you to come to as many or as little practices you want a month, as long as you make a minimum of three practices per month.  Ahhh, this gives you the freedom to kick butt on your own time.

Here’s the breakdown:

We are introducing our FAST TRACK option.  When joining our league, you will be asked to take a preliminary assessment based on the WFTDA minimum skills. The minimum skills requirements are found here: http://wftda.com/rules/wftda-minimum-skill-requirements.pdf

If you do not pass, NO WORRIES, you will be asked to join our new recruit boot camp. This camp lasts about 6 weeks and will teach you all of the skills to become a roller girl and help you pass the WFTDA minimum skills assessment.  

If you pass your WFTDA minimum skills requirements, there will be a short 30 day probationary period from your declared start date until you become scrimmage eligible, however you will have the option to become a FULL or RECREATIONAL member immediately and participate in all practices.

Here is the difference between the two levels of membership:

Switching from Recreational to Full membership is easy too. Once you feel that you can meet the attendance requirements of the team, a coach will walk you through the transition to becoming a Full member in order to be roster and charter eligible.

If you are interested in becoming a FULL or RECREATIONAL member of LVRG and wish to take the preliminary assessment (held monthly), please contact us at join@lehighvalleyrollergirls.com for more information.
