Every so often someone realises that they HAVE to play/referee/officiate and it HAS to be with BRD. Well, in that case you’ve come to the right place…

If you are new to derby and would like to get skating with us Drop in Derby will train you up and filter you into our main league sessions. Drop in Derby provides a weekly session where you can learn skating and derby skills in preparation to join the league, or for a fun skate without having to join the league proper if that’s more your cup of tea.

If you are interested in joining BRD once you have been regularly attending Drop in, the coaches will assess you and suggest integration into Bristol Roller Derby’s main league sessions when both the BRD coaching group and skaters are in agreement.

Our men’s team sessions focus on building a cohesive bouting team to make BRD proud. To find out more what our men’s team Vice Quad is up to, check them on facebook.

If officiating or refereeing is more your style, keep checking back to our Referees and Officials page for updates.

Alternatively if you already are a derby skater, referee or official and want to find out about transferring to our league, contact

See you on the track-side!
