Have you seen the Hereford Roller Girls playing Roller Derby and thought, “That looks awesome! I want a piece of the action”
Well here’s your chance.
We are not only recruiting female and male skaters for our Noobie Program, but skating and non-skating officials too. So if you love the idea of Roller Derby but don’t fancy bashing people around, officiating and refereeing might be for you, especially if you like rules and feeling powerful. Refs and officials are absolutely essential to our sport and even get to be part of their very own teams – Team Zebra and Team Flamingo!
Anyone can join as long as you are over 18 and no, you don’t have to be able to skate!
Our Noobie Programme gives you 6 sessions, once a week at Weobley High School. We will teach you how to skate, stop, fall, block, hit and play Roller Derby!
The course begins on Tuesday 7th January at 7pm – 9pm and costs £30 for the 6 week course.
Spaces are limited, so booking is essential. Please get in touch to do so.
You will need your own kit – elbow and knee pads, wrist guards, helmets, skates and a mouthguard. We do have very limited stocks that you can borrow (bar the mouthguards), but this is on a first come, first served basis. Again, get in touch if you’d like to borrow equipment, and we may be able to help.
Roller Derby starter kits can be purchased and we have recommendations for all budgets – please contact us if you need any advice on what to buy.
So! Come get your skate on and we’ll see you rollin’…
