JOIN THE LEAGUE

If you think you have what it takes to join us, we have two questions for you:

Are you over the age of 18? Are you up for a challenge?

We are looking for people who want to dedicate themselves and their bodies to a fast-paced, high-impact, mentally challenging sport.

Previous skating experience is NOT required. Our trainers will teach you everything you need to know about skating and how to play roller derby.

We also welcome and train referees, non-skating officials, and volunteers to our league!

If you’d like to know more, or you're interested in joining our team, email membership@nashvillerollerderby.com.

 

See you on the track!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will I need to purchase skates, protective gear, helmets or pads?


During Bootcamp recruitment nights, we will provide loaner gear! This includes skates, pads, and helmets. If you need gear, please include that information when you reach out. A $40 deposit is required to take out gear and $20 will be returned when you bring the gear back. This equipment is available on a 'first come, first serve' basis and must be returned. The one piece of equipment we do not provide is a mouthguard.
 

Where can I purchase skates, protective gear, helmets or pads?


While you can find roller derby gear many places including online stores, we highly recommend visiting Asphalt Beach for all your gear needs. They can also help size you if you’re not sure what you need!


What is the cost of joining NRD?


There are no fees for Bootcamp recruitment nights or your first month as a Bootcamper. Bootcampers normally pay $40 a month in dues and NRD league members pay $45 a month.


But I don’t know how to skate! Can I join?


100% YES! Most of our skaters started from not knowing how to skate at all. Bootcamp is where we teach you how to skate and you can join on any Bootcamp recruitment night.
 

I currently/used to skate with another league. Can I join?


We take skaters who can pass minimum skills and have current WFTDA insurance on an ongoing basis! Reach out to athletics@nashvillerollerderby.com to inquire about transferring leagues.
