What you’ll need: -You must have a full set of derby gear in order to participate. This includes quad skates (no inlines allowed), knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, a multi-impact rated helmet (bike helmets are not acceptable), and a molded mouthguard (make sure you mold your mouthguard before the first practice). For the pads – we suggest gear specifically for roller sports. Skateboard pads are great, and there are endless options for derby-specific gear as well. In particular you want nice thick knee pads, as you will be spending plenty of time learning how to fall safely onto your knees. You can find beginner skate packages at the Skaters choice in Tampa or anywhere online. You can also find used gear on the Roller Derby Recyclables Facebook page. -Water! Derby is a physical sport, and you’re going to be working up a sweat! Be sure to bring plenty of water/gatorade/whatever to keep you hydrated! -WFTDA/skater Insurance: You will be required to buy WFTDA insurance after 10 weeks of any REVO training. You will be notified and sent details on how to purchase when the time comes.
Our Practices are all inclusive and 18+. Looking to visit from another league? We would love to have you. A signed waiver is required to skate. Let’s do this!
