Learn to play

Want to learn to play roller derby? We’ll teach you!

Each year, we host a new skater intake for those interested in living their own roller derby dreams. To stay updated on our plans for the next New Skater Intake, please join our mailing list., and follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

Please note, our 2020 New Skater Intake is currently paused due to Coronavirus.

What you will learn

You will be taught skills from the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA)’s Minimum Skills Requirements.

The course is tailored for people who can already stand up and move comfortably on quad roller skates (no rollerblades please).

When you’ve completed the course and met the Minimum Skills Requirements you’ll be ready to join in with the wider Newcastle Roller Derby practices and start playing the game!

We’ll send more information about the course when future dates are released.
