Recruitment & Tryouts

ROCK is looking for skaters, referees, and volunteers!

Do you think you have what it takes to be a ROCK skater? Or maybe you want to be a part of the game without as big a commitment? Being a Non-Skating Official (NSO) may be the way to go for you!

Volunteers, such as NSOs, may join ROCK at any time. Simply contact us and we will let you know what you can do to help out. We need help with everything from setting up the track, to keeping score, or even being a referee! Training will be provided, so no experience is necessary!

We hold Boot Camps and Tryouts for potential ROCK skaters twice a year. These take place at our practice space, The Bread Box (see map below), but first we usually hold a Meet & Greet during one of our scrimmages. This helps you get an idea of what it is like ‘behind the scenes’.

Any Boot Camps we hold before Tryouts are to prepare you for the skills we will ask for during Tryouts. They are very intensive, both physically and mentally, and definitely worth it. There is often a nominal fee for attending Boot Camps. You will also need to bring your own quad skates, a skate helmet, knee/elbow/wrist guards, and a mouth guard. Let us know if you are having trouble finding anything and we will point you in the right direction.

The Tryouts themselves are often very stressful to potential skaters, but you should know that you are judged more on your attitude and determination than you are on your skills. Everybody starts somewhere and we will teach you everything you need to know!

Want to be really involved? Consider whether coaching is the right choice for you. We are always accepting new coaching applications and typically decide to add coaches during our off season. A team can never have too much inspiration, be it for endurance, strategy, or even off-skates fitness/nutrition! Click here for more info.
