Get On Track to Roller Derby

Join Auld Reekie Roller Derby and become a Protostar skater! Learn all of the Roller Derby basics in a staged programme designed to help you set goals and smash them as you learn to play the the most fun sport in the world.

Our Protostars group have access to two regular ‘derby basics’ sessions per week,  all designed to help you pass the basic skills required to play competitively. We accept anyone from absolute beginners, to those who have skated a ton before.  Our sessions also offer a fun space to practice roller derby recreationally with no pressure.

The next intake date is January 2019. Thereafter, anyone can sign up to attend on the first Saturday of every month. The first session is free! All you have to do is sign up in advance!

Once you’ve attended the first session, you’ll be invited to set up a regular advance payment which gives you access to 2 sessions per week and all of our coaching resources.

Once you’ve progressed through Stage 1, our trial period ‘One Small Step’, you’ll be invited to join and become a full member of the league, with access to our forum, and all of the opportunities that come from being a member of this community!
