What equipment will I need?

Knee and elbow pads, mouth and wrist guards, a helmet, and quad skates. (As much fun as rollerblades can be, they absolutely DO NOT work for roller derby.) This is the hardest bit, because there is a dizzying array of options. It’s hard to know where to start, so we recommend reading this article  before you start. Most starter packages are adequate for beginners, but if you are serious about derby, the two things worth upgrading are knee pads and toe stops. We recommend 187 Killer knee pads and Gumball toe stops. If you can’t decide what to get, don’t panic! Just show up and we’ll help you figure it out.

 

Where’s best place to get equipment?

Locally, we like SkateNow, at 2682 S. Highland Dr. Suite 104. If you prefer to shop online, here are a few shops we like:

Bruised Boutique

Derby Warehouse

Back Alley Skates

Used derby gear can be a great value, if you don’t mind going pre-owned. Check out the Roller Derby Recyclables group on Facebook.

It’s also worth checking out eBay, KSL.com, and Craigslist. Look for “fresh meat” gear.
And finally, email us at if you have specific questions about gear.

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don¡¯t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
