Friends of Greenwood Playground wants you to know that 
it isn't too late to register for Derby Fit.
If you haven't walked by Greenwood Playground and seen the fliers for the Derby Fitness classes, I have good news! The deadline for registration has been extended to this Saturday, May 10th. 
Class dates are now May 17th, May 31st, June 7th, June 14th, June 21st, June 28th. 
All classes will be held on Saturday mornings from 9:00 to 10:30. 
Derby Fit is a fun and challenging total-body workout for skaters of all levels, based on drills adapted from the sport of roller derby.
A typical Derby Fit class consists of 10 to 15 minutes of jogging and dynamic movement to warm up, followed by land drills to build the muscles used in skating. Then skates are put on for skating drills. 
All drills are non-contact and focus on skating fundamentals and cardio endurance. No skating skills are required, but you do need to be able to get around the track without holding onto anything. Derby Fit skaters can expect to build strength, get fit, and have a great time doing it!
