Are you new to the sport? This is an awesome chance to get some great training, skate some fun games and hang out in the sunshine with other skaters, just as excited as you about. Meet the veteran skaters you look up to and make new friends!
Are you a veteran of the sport? Let's be honest, with the intensive training schedules, league building and tough competition, this is just what the doctor ordered. After the qualification season, this is your chance to play with your friends from other teams, you're always playing against. This is the chance to relax and bask in the glory that is our sport... with beer.
Are you off skates? No problem, we've got events for everyone from vendors to parties to seminars and more!

Q: Can I get a day pass or set pass for trainings?
