Feel like there’s a warrior inside you just waiting to be let out? Looking for adventure, camaraderie and fun? Look no further.
Oil City Roller Derby, Edmonton’s only co-ed flat track roller derby league, is hosting our next Recruitment Week January 16th and 18th. This is an introduction to our fundamentals program. The intensive 10-week fresh meat program will teach all the skills from skating to making and taking hits.
January 16th from 6:00 to 7:30pm we’ll meet in Spike’s (in the Sportsdome) for an information night. We’ll give you an opportunity to learn all the info you need about getting started with roller derby, as well as time to ask questions, fill out the necessary paperwork, and reserve gear for Thursday night.
On January 18th we get you geared up and let you hit the track to get a taste of roller derby. There will be experienced skaters on hand to answer questions and help you out one-on-one. We’ll run through the basic skills with you to get you on your way to playing derby.
Never roller skated before? No problem! Most of our players and recruits have no former skating experience, so you’ll be in good company. We also have gear for you to borrow so you don’t need to make any big decisions (or purchases) until you’re sure this is the sport for you. The first two weeks of skating with us is risk free too! Payment for the program isn’t due until the end of the two week trial period, when you decide whether or not you want to commit to the sport. If you decide derby isn’t the sport for you, no harm done. You have nothing to lose by giving it a try!

Tuesdays at 6:00 – 7:30 PM, Thursdays at 6:00 – 7:30 PM, Sundays 1-3 PM; at The Sports Dome, 10104 – 32 Avenue NW, Edmonton.
