Interested in getting started? Check out our Saturday Off-Skates Boot Camps! Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., Jan. 19th through April 6th, at Hancock Elementary School, 10 Elementary Lane, Hancock, NH (enter through main front doors). Suggested $5 donation. Bring a towel or yoga mat, athletic shoes (or go barefoot), water bottle, free weight (3-8 lbs.) suggested for more resistance. This Bootcamp will consist of two 45 minute sessions with 5 – 10 minute health/fitness discussion periods. The intention is to provide a platform for the average person to create a basic understanding of being athletic and taking care of yourself. Exercises will be off-skates and provide a cross-training experience for skaters to improve core-strength, flexibility, and balance. The muscles that will be focused on, will be for roller derby use and conditioning. For more info, contact: Sprawkett 603-748-9945 or email: sprawkett@gmail.com.

Come to our roller derby rock star training sessions. The first 45 minutes of practice will be off-skates strength training and en”derb”ance, using body weight. Optional: stay and learn to skate for the next 45 minutes, as we will be focusing on the skills required.

Participants will have to sign a waiver, and can be from ages 8 to +18. They should be ready to sweat and move their bodies to a variety of exercises that will target zones of the body used for skating. Hence train like a derby rock star!!

Parking & entry for July 21 bout

VERY IMPORTANT PARKING INFO for our upcoming Mad Knockers vs NH All-Stars & Mad Misfits vs NH Junior RD game. Please note references to the campus map are for the .pdf version: https://www.nec.edu/wp-co…/uploads/NEC_CampusMap_Parking.pdf.

The bout is at New England College (Henniker, NH) at the Lee Clement Arena (letter W on the campus map). During construction on the lower part of Grove Street in front of the arena, the Field House lot (number 12 on the map) and West Lot (number 26 on the map) will not be accessible, nor will the front (south) entrance. Therefore, we will be using the rear (north) entrance (the Zamboni end) and alternative parking areas.

Parking near the back entrance will be extremely limited, about 12 spaces; these will be reserved for emergency personnel, handicap vehicles, and vehicles delivering equipment & supplies. If you are driving one of these vehicles, the Arena Rear Lot (number 5 on the map) can be reached by driving in to the entrance of Simon Center (98 Bridge Street, number 21 on the map) and then proceeding past Gilmore Dining Hall (letter S on the map) to the end.

A few more spaces can be found behind and adjacent to the CEI lot (numbers 1 and 8 on the map). These can be reached by proceeding south to Bridge Street, turning right on Circle Street, then right again into the lots. (CEI = Center for Educational Innovation, letter H on the map.)

Additional parking will be in the Simon Center lot (number 21 on the map). From this lot, walk between the Simon Center (letter EE on the map) and Colby Hall (letter K on the map) to get to the arena.

Overflow parking will be in what NEC calls the River Lot which is across the street from the Simon Center.



NEC and MRD will be putting up signs.

If you run into any hazards or encounter a safety situation, the number for NEC Campus Safety is (603) 428-2323. The Campus Safety building is at 58 Union Street.
