Then you’re in luck! CRG will be holding tryouts THIS SUNDAY, July 10 at the Skate Ranch. The fun begins at 9:30AM, so be sure to arrive early with a photo ID to prove you are at least 18 years old and full equipment as listed on the website (you can borrow skates from the Ranch if needed). Waivers will be provided for you to sign before you can participate.

We will be holding three rounds of cuts during tryouts. We will start with basic skating, then go into basic skills (see below for a list of skills you will be expected to demonstrate) and end with a fun fun fun obstacle course that will test your agility, reaction time and overall skating balance. After tryouts, if you made it all the way to the end, we will be sending out letters, via email, with the information letting you know if you have passed or not, as well as how to begin the process of becoming an official Carolina Rollergirl.
