If you are interested in skating with our league, becoming an official or an off-skates member of the league, we have the following orientation date available. This will be a brief overview of our league, what type of gear you may need, and what you can expect in being a member of BTRD.

BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO SKATE OR HOW TO PLAY ROLLER DERBY.

That’s great because roller derby is so much more than just skaters!

At Boom Town Roller Derby, we will walk you through basic skating skills, roller derby rules, and specific roller derby techniques to prepare you for game play. Skaters are coached by experienced players and attend scrimmages and games where they learn from our amazing volunteers and officials in a hands-on environment. If you have never skated before you are not alone. We welcome all interested skaters, no matter their skill level, to come join the fastest growing sport in America.

Boom Town Roller Derby does NOT require tryouts but instead offers training cycles throughout the year. We believe that growing people into athletes is important and is part of what makes the BTRD membership flourish.

Please contact us for any questions. 😊 We will see you on September 22nd!

This could be you:

· Team skater.

· Referee.

· Non-skating official.

· Announcer.

· Track Set up crew.

· DJ
