So you want to learn to skate and play roller derby with us? You’ve come to the right place!

Come roll with us during our Rookie Bootcamp!

We will be offering free skating training and introduce you to roller derby. This training is non-contact and focuses on basic skating skills, like skating posture, stops, falling, balance, agility, turns, jumps, and many more!


November 26 (Sunday)

November 29 (Wednesday)


We strongly believe roller derby is for everyone; no matter your level of fitness, gender, background or bodytype, you are welcome! Our only requirement is that you are at least 18 years before you start skating with us.


In order to play roller derby the following gear is required:

Need to borrow stuff? We have some gear available for our rookies’ first few trainings, so you don’t need to commit to buying skates or protection before you try the sport. Please come early if you need to borrow gear and/or skates. We do not lend out mouth guards.

Of course, once you’re hooked, you’ll want a nice pair of skates for yourself. In that case we recommend checking out Space Skates or Sucker Punch Skate Shop.
