Like any sport, there is gear that you will need in order to participate in roller derby safely. There are a lot of brands and styles to choose from so ask around and try on other people’s gear to see what size you need. We do have gear that can be borrowed until you are able to purchase your own. Skates can be rented for $3.

Unless you have a rich uncle footing the bill, shop around for prices. Some vendors have discounted package deals for new skaters if you buy everything at once. This can be a good deal, but check each of the elements in the package because sometimes substitutions aren’t allowed.

Required Equipment:

Mouth guard (skaters MUST provide their own – we do not keep extras on hand!)

Quad skates (if you would like advice on what types to get or where to shop, let us know)


Elbow pads

Wrist guards

Helmet (we recommend helmets made for skateboarding or hockey

Additional skills-based practices may be available at an additional cost.
