We are very excited and proud to announce our brand new STEAKS Rookie Program!
What is the STEAKS Rookie Program?
Starting 2019 STEAKS will be selecting one roller derby, ramp skating, other full contact or action sports rookie for our rookie program, which is designed not only to keep you, greenhorns, safe but also to help you grow and improve at your sport.
Why we are starting this program!
Everyone here at STEAKS remembers those first few years as new athletes in our sports. We started in roller derby, crashed hard, got back up – and repeated that cycle over and over again. Today we still crash but those first few months (years?) were the ones with the most memorable bruises and the most challenging when it came to finding our spot and feeling comfortable in this new adventure we were on. This is why STEAKS wants to support one rookie on their own adventure during this challenging phase!
The STEAKS Rookie Program includes:
- Protection: free STEAKS contact wear
- Mentoring: by the awesome STEAKS Crew, a crew of hella smart skaters and other athletes that will do their best to help you grow
- … and some other fun perks
What does the STEAKS Rookie have to do in return?
When we started out we found comfort in knowing that there were others out there with the same struggles. We searched for tips and tricks on how to overcome certain hurdles, which is why we want the STEAKS Rookie to keep a public progress diary in the shape of social media posts or blog posts so other rookies may find, learn and benefit from your journey.
How to sign up:
If you are up for the challenge, then head over to Instagram and post a short video or image in which you let us know, why you should become the first ever STEAKS Rookie and how long you have been active in your sport! Don’t forget to include the hashtag #steaksrookie so we can find your entries!
Not on Instagram? Then send an email to rhonda @ steakswear . com with the subject “STEAKS Rookie 2019”.
All entries that reach us until Jan 5, 2019, will be taken into consideration. We will be announcing the 2019 STEAKS Rookie end of Jan / early Feb on our social media channels (facebook / instagram / twitter) and/or via email.
