Curious about Roller Derby?
Charlotte Roller Derby is currently recruiting!
– Skaters for our WFTDA teams, brand new Men’s team, Junior’s Team and ALWAYS Referees and Non-skating officials.
Ever thought about learning to play roller derby, or just learning how to roller skate?
Our skating program, Skate Charlotte, is a weekly class that teaches the basics of roller skating: Stride, Stops, Recovery, Footwork, Jumps, and much, much more!
Whether you have previous skating experience, or putting on skates for the first time in your life, this class will get you skating into fitness through roller derby inspired skills and drills.
If you are interested in playing roller derby with Charlotte Roller Derby, and you are 16 years or older, this class is the first step in learning the fundamentals; once you have the basics down, you may join the league and begin attending our roller derby practices.
Interested in skating just for fun and fitness? Skate Charlotte is open to registered skaters on a drop-in basis, come skate with us as often as you’d like!
Being a Charlotte Roller Derby Skater
Monthly Dues are $40.00, due by 1st of the Month.
Primary Health Insurance
ALL skaters are required to carry primary health insurance on an ongoing basis in order to be an active skater with CLTRD.
You must obtain AND maintain a WFTDA membership, even if you have primary health insurance. The fee is $70 annually.
Required Equipment: We recommend the Pro-Shop at Kate’s Skating Rink in Gastonia. See the “Helpful Links” section for additional suggestions. If you have questions about what kind of gear to buy, especially pads, please talk to any member of the league!
What you'll need:
Roller Derby is a high impact, full contact sport and we take big hits and hard falls. Pads and helmets are the only things between your fragile bones/head and very hard surfaces.
How to become a Ref
Want to get involved but just not interested in being a skater? We’ve got an important place for you! The CLTRD family includes and depends on a whole host of both female and male referees, coaches, trainers, and volunteers in order to keep it up and running. Whatever you’ve got to offer, whether it’s a special skill or just your time, we want you on board! And don’t forget the most important job of all: fan! Contact us for more information.
Volunteer/NSO (Non-Skating Official) with the League
There are many ways to be involved with the league. It’s more than just skaters! We need volunteers and non-skating officials to help us at scrimmages and bouts. If you’d like to be involved with the league, but aren’t keen on skating, we have a spot for you. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
