Message to Prospective Fresh Meat

There has been a great deal of interest in our new intake of fresh meat, and unfortunately we can only take a limited number of skaters. Therefore we will be holding try-outs for those interested in joining us.

There will be two try-out days – to get a place on a try-out day please email bristolrollerderby (@) (if you have not already received an email or message specifying if you should attend on the 6th or the 13th). There is essential information that all attendees must have, otherwise you may unfortunately not be able to take part.

The session will run from 10am-12pm at Merchants Academy sports centre in Withywood, please ensure you arrive on time. The cost of the session will be £3.50, plus £1.50 if you require kit hire.

You must be over 18 yrs of age to play, therefore you will need to bring photo ID (passport or driving licence) with your date of birth on, as well as a photocopy of your ID for us to keep on record, without this you will not be allowed to skate. Roller Derby, being a contact sport on roller skates, has its hazards and therefore on arrival you will need to fill out a disclaimer and also an emergency contact and medical details form.

The session will be split between on-skate and off-skate activities and you will find out more about the sport and our league, so please make sure you bring trainers, also if you own any quad skates or protective equipment please bring it, as our hire kit is very limited.

During the sessions you will be observed by the coaches, please don’t be put off attending if you can’t skate or are not particularly fit, we are not just looking for good skaters but for people who show potential and are committed to playing Roller Derby.

In order to be selected for the new fresh meat intake you will also need to be able to commit to Sunday training sessions which will be 11am- 12pm from the 20th of March, and then move to 12-2pm from the 10th of April.

Many thanks and we look forward to meeting you!
