Become a Skater

Cost

  • 1st month free to new recruits!
    Monthly dues are $20
  • Insurance – Further along in your training, when it comes time to add you to a bout or scrimmage roster, you must purchase USARS group accident insurance handled through the league. It runs about $50 to $60.

Gear

Skate rental is available at Dow’s for $2 and we have team safety gear you can borrow at practices or rent on a quarterly basis. Eventually you will want to purchase your own skates and gear so you can participate at our outdoor practices, and our twice a week practices at Bird arena. A beginner skate package can start as low as $120. It is suggested that you get the best setup that you can afford. A $350 beginner skate and equipment package is reasonable for gear that might last 2 or 3 seasons. Prices go up from there.

Time Commitment

We practice 2 times per week.
5-7pm Sunday & Tuesdays  6-8pm at Dow’s Rollarena

Attendance

Once you decide derby is for you, a 50% attendance requirement will keep you in good standing with the league.
If you would like to skate in bouts and scrimmages, you must maintain a 66% attendance average.
There is also a small commitment of 4 hours volunteer service to the team per month.

Insurance

  • Health and accident insurance is your own responsibility. It is highly recommended!
  • USARS (USA Roller Sports) insurance is required to attend bouts and scrimmages outside of practices. The cost is less than $60 per year.
