How to Join Duke City Roller Derby

Prospective Skaters

The next Duke City Roller Derby Bootcamp for new skaters is August 18th, and 19th, 2018. We will teach you the basics of skating to get your feet underneath you before you start practices. After the weekend, you'll enter our Fresh Meat Program, where you'll learn everything you need to know about roller derby. Fresh Meat skaters practice two times per week (currently, Mondays and Wednesdays) for 10-12 weeks before graduating into the league and getting drafted for a home team.

Prospective skaters must be 18 years of age and be female-identified or gender expansive. No athletic or sports experience required. Under 18? Learn about our Junior Roller Derby Program, The Marionettes.
