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 (NSI), please join our mailing list, and follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

Our 2022 New Skater Intake course took place between March and June 2022. We’ll share news of our next NSI course in due course.

What you will learn

You will be taught skills from the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA)’s Beginner Curriculum

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 participant-centered
assessments 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.
