Boot Camp FAQs
How do I know if I am eligible to participate?
Bootcamps are co-ed, 9+. Skating experience is helpful but not required. All skill levels welcome!
How Do I Assess My Skill Level?
Read the descriptions and place yourself where you think you are best suited. On the day of the Boot Camp, skaters can get shuffled around if needed.
What About Insurance?
HVHRD does not provide insurance and you will be required to sign a waiver to participate. Personal insurance is strongly suggested.
Can I get a refund if it turns out I can’t make it?
Boot camps are not refundable, but they are transferable. You can either transfer the registration to a future boot camp or you can have a friend or family member take your place. Just shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make the transfer happen.
