Description

What to expect

We will put you through a 12 week course of roller derby skills.

We teach you basic skating technique, a low stance, to stop, and fall. Once you have covered the basics, we move on to jumping, hitting and other skills. We assess your skills.

We have a variety of coaches taking sessions and there are always Angels on hand to help out. We try to make sessions fun and you are invited to other social events.

Some people are ready to move up to our advanced sessions after 12 weeks, others need longer to master their skills - skaters are always ready to tell their story if you ask! We have a friendly Facebook group to share ideas and all of our skaters are supported by the 3 league skater reps. It can take months before you are ready to skate on one of our competitive teams. However, we want everyone to be a full part of the league as we all have skills to offer. You can try your hand at officiating at home and away games. Our league is run by and for its members so you can join one of our dedicated groups to volunteer with fundraising, events, planning game days or making media content.

Your first session: we will lend you skates, a helmet and protective gear, but pleae bring your own if you have it.

Wear something comfortable like leggings/ shorts, a sports bra, and a t shirt - jeans are not recommended. Wear socks.

Bring a bottle of water or something to drink.

Your first session is free. We will accept people for the first 3 weeks if you can't make the first session.

Officials

At HARD we are always looking for both non-skating and skating officials. You can join us at any time in the year. Referees must be over 18 and NSOs must be over 16; all genders are welcome. Skating referees must be able to demonstrate safe skating, stopping and falling, and will be required to join our new skater sessions if they are new to roller derby. HARD are actively looking to recruit officials who join us from other sports, or transfers from other leagues.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Skaters must be female and over the age of 17 (see above for officials). We may ask you to prove your age (a student ID or driving license is fine) .
