Philly Roller Derby is always looking for dedicated and determined competitors. Like any sport, roller derby requires aggression, endurance, teamwork, as well as mental and physical toughness — and that’s not all. We are a skater-owned and operated organization and that means we work hard on- and off- skates. Just what kind of work are we talking about? Check out our FAQs here for some more information regarding league membership and expectations.
Still not sure? Attend one of our workshops where we teach some basic skating skills necessary for derby and answer any questions you may have about joining the league. Never skated before? Who cares?! Derby will teach you that Rule #1 is to be fearless. Fortune favors the brave, after all. Follow us on Facebook to receive updates on our upcoming workshops. We hope to see you soon!
