Roller derby is a fun and exhilarating sport. The Beloit Bombshells welcome skaters of all levels from beginners (never skated before EVER!) to experienced skaters and anyone who would like to referee, officiate, or volunteer with the team. No matter how clumsy you think you are, you can learn to skate! So don't let that stop you.
Join us for practice at Skatin’ Station, 1230 East Inman Parkway, Beloit, Wisconsin on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Arrive a little early so we can get you set up with gear. No commitment is necessary and visiting derby players are always welcome!
Please note that practices are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather, holidays, etc, so contact email@example.com to see when the next practice is.
Who can join?
The Beloit Bombshells welcome anyone 18 or older interested in learning the sport of roller derby. Trans and nonbinary skaters welcome. ALL skill levels accepted!
If you identify exclusively as male and want to become involved, we welcome you to learn to be a referee, non-skating official and/or volunteer! All gender identities welcome.
What gear do I need?
The Beloit Bombshells begin practices with an off-skates warm up so bring tennis shoes. All skating participants are required to wear all of the following protective gear:
- Wrist guards
- Elbow pads
- Knee pads
- Mouth guard
- 4 wheel (quad) roller skates
Other than gear, what should I bring and wear?
Bring a big water bottle and come dressed to work out - no tight jeans or anything that restricts movement. We recommend pants, shorts or tights that cover your thighs as they will protect from rink rash when practicing falls and slides. Also remember a mouth guard and tennis shoes.
Do I have to present proof of insurance?
For the first practice, you are not required to present proof of insurance, but primary health insurance is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Eventually you will be required to obtain insurance through membership in WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association).
When do I get to bout?
Roller derby is a sport and, as such, a player needs to understand the rules and be able to show a certain skill level before participating in bouts. Don’t expect to start right away. It usually takes a minimum of three months (and most often longer) before you can begin bouting. This is for your safety and the safety of those on the track with you.
If you have any other questions, contact us. Hope to see you at practice!
