Sunday, September 8th

Event Summary

Dorset Roller Girls and Dorset Knobs Roller Derby will be opening their doors to new skaters on Sunday 8th September! Come along and join the fastest-growing sport on eight wheels in the UK.

This 18-week programme is open to people of all genders aged 18 or over and will teach you the skills needed to play roller derby. If you fancy officiating roller derby, DRG and DKRD are also looking to train skaters to join our Ref crews. This sport wouldn't run without our skaters in the striped shirts.

Sessions are every Sunday 10:30-12:30. Please arrive 30 minutes early to kit up so you are ready to skate at 10:30.

Can't skate? No problem! Previous skating experience is desired, but not essential, though we do ask that you get some practice in before the new skater intake starts so you are able to skate across the hall. Work hard and you'll be playing hard in no time!

What is the age limit?
Roller derby is a full contact sport and our sessions are open to anyone over the age of 18 - there is no upper age limit!

What do I need?
• Quad roller skates with hard indoor wheels (around 92a or above)
• Helmet
• Knee pads (the more heavy duty, the better. You get what you pay for)
• Elbow pads
• Wrist guards
• Gum shield for contact - Sisu Ultralight are most commonly used

We have a limited amount of spare kit available to borrow on a first come, first served basis.

Price: £7 per session
