Join roller derby in Canberra! Fresh meat! Men's derby and women's derby!Men’s derby, women’s derby, and Team Zebra are now recruiting!

Would you like to play roller derby with Varsity Derby League? Or become a referee or non-skating official? Come along to our info night to meet league members and trainers and find out everything you need to know about joining roller derby! Anyone 18+ can join whether you know how to skate or not.

When: Friday 4 April, 7 pm
Where: King O’Malley’s, Civic – in the Castle Room (was the Snug)

You will need to come to the info night to get all the important information about the intake and also to let us know if you need to borrow any skate gear for the first session or two so we can make sure your size is available. You will need your own mouthguard though!

If you already have your own gear or are really keen and want to get some, you will need: quad roller skates, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards and helmet (as well as that mouthguard). Talk to our friends at Eight Track Skate Co (Canberra) or Sydney Derby Skates.

The first three intake sessions are free and will be on Sunday 6, Friday 11 and Sunday 13 April at Woden Basketball Stadium, Irving St, Philip. Full details at the info night.

We’re looking forward to seeing lots of new faces!
