WE NEED FRESH MEAT!
Our doors are open! We need more fresh meat to join our team!
Once you’ve made the best decision of your life and decided to try out, the first step is to get in touch to ensure we have sufficient and suitable spare kit available.
Initially you will attend our Thursday sessions only.
Each Thursday session consists of skating activities 7.30-9.30pm in the Sports Hall at St Josephs School, London Rd, Trent Vale, Stoke-on-Trent.
The cost is £5.00 plus £1 kit hire if required. However, your first session will be free.The team will take you through the basics of skating and roller derby along with a taster of some of the more testing aspects of the skills you will need to master, over a period of approximately 6-8 weeks.
There is no pressure though, if we don't feel you are ready, or, if you don't feel ready, you can take up to a further 6 weeks to make the progression, if needed.
When we feel that you are ready, you will be invited to become a member and train with the team on Tuesday sessions which are at 8-10 at the same venue.
Team sessions are fully coached and include the really fun contact elements of the sport. A mouth guard is an essential part of your kit (we recommend Sisu) and it is therefore compulsory that all members have one. We also encourage you to purchase your own skates once you have become a member to aid progression. Please ask any of the team for recommendations regarding kit.
All team members pay the Membership fee which is £30 every April and the pro-rata amount will be due immediately on becoming a member.
If you are interested in trying out, let us know in advance when you are able to start along with your shoe size and we'll make sure one of the team is on hand to take you through our paperwork and get you kitted out!
We look forward to see you soon!
