Free workshop hosted by Glasgow Roller Derby teaching techniques of skating for all abilities.
Register today to learn how to roller skate with Glasgow Roller Derby!
Learn to play roller derby with us! We will teach you everything you need to know to become part of our next generation of skaters. There is absolutely no skating experience required to sign up – our beginners course will teach you all the basics from standing up, stopping, skating styles, jumping, backwards skating and more! Once you've passed through the course you'll be able to move up to the main league to join as either a player or skating official.
The first session is free and thereafter the cost for the sessions is on a Pay What You Can basis - £0-7 per session, or £0-35 per month.
If you're interested, please get in touch via FB/Insta with the following info:
✪ Your name, email, and pronouns
✪ If you need to borrow kit, if so which bits and what size (if you don't know, just ask!)
✪ Any questions at all you have about GRD, learning to skate, or the sessions
✪ You must be over 18 to sign up.
✪ Glasgow Roller Recruits (GRR) is open to all genders, but be aware that we're a WFTDA roller derby league so our teams are as per their gender statement.
Participants MUST have: a helmet, mouthguard, elbow pads, wrist guards, knee pads, and quad roller skates.
If you are looking to get yourself some kit we recommend a trip to 5th Blocker Skates in The Savoy Centre, or take a look on “UK Roller Derby Recyclables” on Facebook.
We may also be able to provide kit for both short and longer term lease. Please contact us about this if required!
