About: What is Roller Derby?




Who can join roller derby?

Anyone! One of the great things about Derby is that there is a place for everyone. You don't need to have a certain body type or fitness level (our new-skater training will help you get fit!). Whether you join us as a skater, referee or official - there's a place for you. As a WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association) league, bouting skaters must be at least 18 years old and identify as women, men can referee or officiate. Younger skaters should definitely still get in touch as we have options for you, too!

What kind of training do the skaters have?

Each skater goes through Freshmeat training. They have to pass a minimal skills test and achieve 27 laps of the track in 5 minutes!
Once you graduate Freshmeat  and join the league, we have two league trainings per week, plus one team training if you're on a  squad.

How do I join?

We'd love to have you join us! Read more on our Join Us page
