Have you ever watched a roller derby bout and thought it looked like fun?
Did you watch the movie Whip It and think "I need to do this"?
Are you looking for a way to meet new people and build your community?
Are you looking for a new athletic outlet or exercise routine?
Do you love ibuprofen?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, or even if you didn't, we have a spot on our team for you.
Who can join?
Anyone over the age of 18.
Do I need to know how to skate?
No skating experience is required. We have great coaches that teach you from the very basics of stopping and going to the skills of hitting and jumping the apex.
What do I need?
If you plan on being a skating member of our league you will eventually need to purchase your own gear. We will talk to you at orientation about loaner gear for you to use while you are learning. We will also talk about what type of skates to buy and where to buy them.
What if I don't want to skate or don't want to hit people?
We have great training programs for people who want to referee (a great way to skate without contact or hitting) and we have scrimmage nights where people learn how to do the non skating official positions. We would love to have you on our team even if you never want to wear a pair of skates.
How do I join?
We have frequent new skater orientation nights. These are usually an hour long. No gear is necessary. We spend the time going over our league, talking about what derby is, and explaining our training programs. It is a great informal atmosphere where you can ask any questions you have.
If we do not have an orientation coming up soon and you can't wait to join, send us a message and we will give you all the information you need.
When and where are practices?
Practice venues are a hot commodity in the Spokane area! We try to have practices 2-3 times a week. The locations and times vary based on venue availability, but our normal practice spaces are The Wellness Center at Central Park and Roller Valley. To help develop skater skills and game play strategy while still learning to skate we also incorporate off skates "sneaker derby" sessions into our training as well.
During our summer season we usually try to schedule 1 to 2 outdoor trail skates a week as well.
We also do some boot camp cross training with Forward Fitness that offers a discount to our members or and a roller derby focused training plan.
Practice attendance is highly encouraged, but not required. We know everyone has other things outside of roller derby in their life and we understand if you can't make it to every practice.
How much does it cost?
A new blood 10 week training session is $100. After that you can become a regular dues paying member. Upon completion of your first session and testing we give you 1-2 weeks of free skating time to decide if you want to stick with us, which we sincerely hope you do!
The dues are usually $55 a month for the regular season. Discounts are given for paying in bulk. If you have a financial hardship we can also offer discounts or payment plans on a case by case basis.
