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!

Ready to get started?

The first thing you need to do is come to one of our upcoming recruitment events!
