Rec League Skater Levels

Atlanta Roller Derby’s Rec League is designed to teach skaters what they need to know to play the sport safely, starting with the basics and moving up to scrimmaging with the league. Once at the scrimmage level, skaters can enter the draft for a team that plays in our public bouts! Drafts are rolling and we announce the dates in advance to give Gold skaters the opportunity to test up and enter the draft if they are ready. To that end, there are no “tryouts” for the league – start your Roller Derby Journey today!

Bronze ($35 / month) – Learn to skate and break a sweat! Great for anyone looking for a unique workout. This level includes Basic Skate Skills and Skate Endurance Classes.

Silver ($45 / month) – Learn to hit and work on strategy! Perfect for any skater wanting to learn scrimmage scenarios. This level includes Basic Skate Skills, Skate Endurance, Advanced Stops, and Hits and Strategy Classes. Program ends with WFTDA Minimum Skills clearance.
