BECOME A ROLLERGIRL: Join DCRD today!
To become a DCRD skater, one must meet a set minimum skill level as required by the Women's Flat Track Derby Association. It's not overnight, and may sound daunting, but with determination, will, and the help of your fellow skaters, you too can reach the level of "bout ready" rollergirl.
To reach that level, a minimum practice requirement is in place. These practices, alongside your fellow trainees, and with the guidance of experienced skaters, are your road to full membership and the title of "DCRD Rollergirl". All that is required is the will to come to practice and the desire to push yourself and your teammates further. If you have that, any skill can be learned. The road may not be easy, but you will not travel it alone. Your team is there to support you.
To skate for DCRD you must be female, 18+ and wear all required gear. To join our "Fresh Meat" program, strangely enough, you need not know how to skate---as we said above, any skill can be learned. Required gear includes skates, elbow and knee pads, wrist guards, mouth guard and helmet. All gear except a mouth guard, may be rented from the league. You must provide your own mouth guard.
Contact us today for more information on our "Fresh Meat" program, including weekly practice times and how to begin your training. Cue montage...
