Wood Floors

Took some measurements and visited our proposed space today. We’re still working out the details with the group we’ll share with and waiting for our orientation to drop the first month’s rent, but here’s a sneak peak at where we’ll be skating.

There are a number of modifications to make to bring this up to WFTDA’s safety standards (our insurer) and even more repairs to get things up to our safety standards, but it shouldn’t take long.

This space is not quite large enough to set up a full roller derby track. But it is comparable to a school gym in size which is a typical practice space, especially for leagues as new as ours. We’ll be able to work on all our basic skate skills as well as blocking and game strategy here.
