New skaters

You don't have to be a great skater to come along. If you have some basic skating skills, we can teach you everything you need to know to be a great roller derby skater!

How do I join?

We have regular intakes throughout the year. Check our Facebook events page for the latest. Please contact us if you have any questions about joining.

Skaters who are invited to join the league will begin their derby career learning basic skills before doing any contact (blocking).

Once you've learned how to play roller derby and all the necessary skills, you'll be assigned to a team.

Transferring skaters are welcome at any time. Contact us for information on transferring.

Please note that all of our sessions are closed, sorry no spectators allowed.

How old do I have to be to skate for SSRG?

You must be at least 18 years of age.

How can I get ready before coming along?

The more time you can spend on skates before you come along, the better. There are a few skating rinks across Brisbane with open hours for the public where you can rent quad skates and work on your skating basics. Our home rink (Digi Roller Skating) also offers adult learn to skate lessons after hours.

What do I need to be able to do before joining?

You only need to have basic skating skills. Once you're a member we'll teach you what you need to know to play roller derby.

What equipment will I need?

Every skater is required to wear a helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, and quad roller skates. We do not have gear to loan out.

You will be working hard so wear something non restrictive, light and breathable.

Not interested in skating but you still want to be involved?

We are recruiting non-skating officials and associate members too!

Are there a lot of injuries?

We work really hard to limit injuries by training to skate safely and encourage injury-prevention through off-skates exercises.

Full protective gear is required for all skaters. For insurance purposes, you will be required to sign a waiver for your initial training sessions.

If I have more questions, who do I ask?

For more information, please contact us.
