New Skaters

We are growing! Philly Roller Derby is looking for individuals to become a part of our league as skaters, officials, coaches, and volunteers!

We periodically have on-skates open house sessions and have a limited amount of loaner gear available for use at these open house sessions. If you have your own quad skates and pads, please bring them with you. Your own athletic mouthguard is required. We recommend a style that covers only your upper teeth to allow for communication, a vital skill in derby.

If you need to purchase gear, including a mouthguard, visit Bruised Boutique. Skaters who join PRD are expected to purchase their own gear within 3 months of their start date.

Any questions? Please email

Transfer Skaters

If you currently play roller derby and have thought about joining PRD, ask us about our no-hassle, no-tryout transfer process. Just email

Drop-in Skaters

Skaters interested in dropping in to a practice should have completed a new skater/fresh meat program and have active WFTDA insurance, as well as be able to show proof of a COVID vaccination. The drop-in fee is $15 per practice. Please email for more information.
