Houston Roller Derby’s Recreational League (also referred to as “Rec League”) is an athletic and social organization formed to give all women the opportunity to learn and play flat track roller derby. Rec League is a place for women to play roller derby without having to make the commitments required to be a home team skater. It offers women a fun, safe, opportunity to express and build their athletic abilities.
Our members vary in age and athletic ability. Women attend Rec League for different reasons. Many women attend to learn the skills in preparation for future HRD home team skater tryouts, and others just for a great workout.
All skaters must be 18 years or older.
We have three levels of training. All skaters start off in the beginner group and will have to pass assessments before being allowed to move to the next group.
