Now with Rolling Admission
Fresh Meat is now rolling admission – you can join whenever you want! All skill levels allowed. You must be 18+ in order to participate. You will be able to progress through the program at your own pace.
Fresh Meat practices are held at our Warehouse (5378 Belfield Ave, Philadelphia) on Sundays and Thursdays.
**Your first Fresh Meat practice is FREE!**
Details will be provided at your first practice. No need to sign up, just show up and skate.
Also, on Wednesdays, we will be offering something new for the Fresh Meat. While you will not be able to skate in the PRD scrimmage, you may come and participate as an NSO, referee, or simply watch PRD scrimmage for the evening.
Wednesdays*** 7:00 – 9:00 pm ***
All Fresh Meat are expected to have their own gear by the first day of practice. If you do not have gear, we have limited gear for you to borrow. Please contact Zuri Pryor-Graves to request gear. Skaters will not be able to participate in practice without the appropriate gear, including:
A helmet (no bike helmets)
When choosing your gear, make sure you pick high quality roller derby/skate pads. Note: we do NOT consider roller blading pads, volleyball pads, etc to appropriate padding.
You will receive a welcome Fresh Meat packet when you join, detailing the training schedule, finances, league and membership requirements, etc. You will not be required to have WFTDA insurance for these practices. Once you become a PRD league member, you will be required to obtain WFTDA insurance.
Note: We do not currently have a men’s leagues, but are always recruiting officials!
