rec and boot campAll Sunday tryouts are 5-7 p.m. at the Garden City Gym, 160 Priscilla Thomas Way/ Wheat Hill Road.  No registration is necessary.

Skaters must demonstrate confidence and stability while completing the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association’s Minimum Skills Requirements to pass tryouts.

Health insurance is not required to try out. However, members must purchase supplementary insurance through WFTDA in order to join the league. All participants must sign a liability waiver and must wear all WFTDA required gear, including a mouth guard. Participants may borrow SDD gear and the facility’s skates at tryouts.

Most people who are new to skating or to derby do not pass tryouts on the first try. The SDD offers training programs such as Roller Girl Boot Camp and wRECk League to provide preparation for tryouts.
