Being a Roller Girl takes time and plenty of hard work, but the rewards are endless! Not only will you learn how to play derby and whip your body into bout-ready shape, you’ll also be taking an active role in the Charlotte community through volunteer work. Not to mention finding your place in a diverse family of strong, driven, and committed women from all walks of life!
For more information on joining the Charlotte Roller Girls, contact us at and come to one of our recruiting sessions! Before attending, we encourage those that are interested to visit the Women’s Flat-Track Derby Association (WFTDA) website to learn the basic rules of roller derby.
Join the League as a Skater

Primary Health Insurance: ALL skaters are required to carry primary health insurance on an ongoing basis in order to be an active skater with CLTRG.
WFTDA Insurance: You must obtain AND maintain a WFTDA membership, even if you have primary health insurance. The fee is $60 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!

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.
