It’s time to earn your wings.
Denver Roller Derby’s unique recruitment program, Flight School, allows skaters of all levels a chance to learn in a safe, supportive environment. Flight School focuses on basic skating technique, roller derby specific skills, and rules knowledge. Cadets are coached by experienced trainers, mentored by skaters in the league, and attend scrimmages where they’re trained by our amazing team of Officials in practical, hands-on rules seminars. Even if you’ve never skated before, we invite you to come join us. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to get rolling!
We are in the process of confirming the Open Recruitment Night schedule for 2016, and the schedule will be posted on this page as soon as it is available!
If you are interested in joining, here are some things you need to know:
-The Glitterdome is the DRD practice warehouse located at 3600 Wynkoop, Suite A, Denver. Please look up directions online.
-Recruitment will start promptly at 6:30pm. You need to show up a minimum of 15 minutes early to sign in and get your skate gear on. The doors will open at 6pm to begin sign-in.
-Recruitment night will be free. We do have rental skates available on a first come, first serve basis.
-You must be 18 years or older on the tryout date. Your ID will be checked at sign-in, so make sure to have your license with you. You must be at least 18 years old to participate. If you’re under 18 please consider joining our Junior Derby program.
-Recruitment is open to all genders
-Feel free to bring any gear you would like to try out or skate in. This includes quad skates and any protective gear (helmet, wrist, knee, elbow pads, etc). There is some loaner protective gear if you would like to borrow some, but it will not be required. Wearing a helmet is highly recommended. Feel free to wear any type you have (bike, snowboard, kayak, whatever).
-Tap water is available but you will need to bring your own bottle as there are no cups available.
-You may bring interested friends to these events, but please leave your family and supporters behind. We found that this causes unnecessary distractions and they will be asked to leave.
Please email if you have further questions about Flight School. We can’t wait to meet you!
