Try It FREE
The best way to get your feet wet in the derby world is to come and check out one of our free TRY IT nights. You need to bring your own helmet and mouth guard, but we will hook you up with everything else you need. These nights are fun, social and no pressure. It's a good way to see what it quad skates are all about and ask any questions you might have about the sport or the league, all in a friendly all-inclusive atmosphere.
After you give it a try...If you are interested in joining roller derby but have not played before, we hold a beginner training program entitled “Fresh Meat” each year in September and January.
This program will teach all basics; from skating to falling (yep, all the falling), to hitting, to strategy. We will make sure you are both safe and confident when you hit the track, in whatever capacity feels right for you!
These programs are challenging yet fun. We will train and test you on basic skills and official rules, and prepare you to play derby. After successfully completing Fresh Meat training, advanced skating skills, and written rules testing, recruits are eligible to skate with one of our competitive teams.
