Fresh Meat FAQ:
What Do I Need?
A mouth guard and good attitude, plus any skates, knee and elbow pads, wrist guards and a helmet you may have. Borrowed gear is available on a first-come, first-served basis until you can figure out what gear you need/want.
Who can join Boom Town?
All skaters must be 18 or older, and female. Anyone 18 or older can join as referees, announcers, coaches, or other volunteers. Anyone of any age can help support the team through promoting, fundraising, sponsoring, and attending events and bouts.
Do I need any sports experience to play roller derby?
No. Roller derby is a physically demanding sport that requires speed, endurance, agility, strength, awareness and communication skills. The more in shape you are, the quicker you’re apt to pick up basic skating and derby skills, and the less likely you are to become injured.
That said, many of our skaters never played sports until they discovered roller derby and have grown to be remarkable athletes. Since we only practice 2-3 times a week, we encourage skaters to work out and cross-train outside of our regular practices in order to stay in shape.
