Skate Fit in the Boo

Skate Fit in the Boo

Sporting Event

In a first for South Gippsland, a new and exciting “Skate Fit in the Boo” program will be starting as a 4 week trial on Monday nights in the Mirboo North Community Gym, open to all abilities and genders, ages 16 and above. Gippsland Ranges Roller Derby currently runs programs in both Latrobe City (Traralgon Showgrounds venue) and Baw Baw (Lardner Park venue) shires; and the steering committee have been hoping to extend into South Gippsland for some time.

Recently, Treasurer for GRRD Sarah Lawless moved to Mirboo North with her husband Mick and their kids and so the ability for programs to be extended into South Gippsland became more realistic. Sarah says “a lot of people in South Gippsland have been wanting this, we are excited about this 4 week trial and hope to see a lot of locals coming along to try it out”.

The Skate Fit program focuses on skate skills, strength and cardio fitness in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. It is open to all abilities (even those who haven’t donned skates since they were kids) and ages 16 and above (GRRD currently has members ranging in age from 16 to 50+). The program has been a huge success in other regional areas around Victoria including Mildura and Ballarat and is sure to gain some traction in South Gippsland also.
