What to expect at tryouts: Participants will have to perform basic skating skills, all of which will be explained and demonstrated prior. Afterwards, a brief interview will be conducted by a member of Coaching & Training. Many successful skaters have tried out with little to no skating experience... keep in mind that a positive attitude with eagerness to learn holds a lot of weight.
There is NO specific size, shape, weight, age, race, or sexual orientation for roller derby. Our league is incredibly diverse and welcoming of ALL skaters. Per the Women's Flat Track Derby Association's statement on gender, competitive skaters must not identify as men; officials tryouts are open to people of any gender. CTRD is dedicated to inclusion, see https://wftda.com/wftda-gender-statement/ for further details.
