JOIN THE DALLAS DERBY DEVILS!
The Dallas Derby Devils Underworld Rookie Training Program and Recreational League is dedicated to training and developing roller derby skaters at all skill levels and providing opportunities to play roller derby. Our goal is to provide a fun, safe and competitive environment for all who participate.
WHO CAN JOIN?
The Dallas Derby Devils Underworld is the place for anyone interested in learning the sport of roller derby, trying out for a home team, interested in being a referee or just working on your skating and roller derby skills. We welcome all skill levels.
HOW IS IT STRUCTURED?
All new skaters will start in one of our 10-week Training programs. After each 10-week session, there will be a Skills Assessment to determine readiness to move to the next level. The Underworld is split into four types of training:
LEVEL 1 BASIC SKATING SKILLS TRAINING – OPEN TO WOMEN AND MEN
LEVEL 2 ROLLER DERBY SKILLS TRAINING – OPEN TO WOMEN
LEVEL 2 ROLLER DERBY OFFICIALS TRAINING – OPEN TO WOMEN AND MEN
DDD FARM TEAM TRAINING – OPEN TO WOMEN (WHO HAVE ASSESSED OUT OF LEVEL 2)
OUR FARM TEAM HOUSES TWO GROUPS OF SKATERS:
SKATERS INTERESTED IN BEING DRAFTED TO A HOME TEAM WITH DUES, ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS
SKATERS INTERESTED IN REC SKATING FOR FUN AT LEAGUE PRACTICES WITH DUES BUT NO ATTENDANCE OR PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS
