Texas Junior Roller Derby is a 501c3 non-profit junior sports club, focused on building character and leadership through roller derby.
Our Mission is to provide young athletes aged 8 to 17 the opportunity to engage in the sport of roller derby.
Texas Junior Roller Derby practices are held at Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex on Wednesdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturdays from 9:00am to 10:30am. Dates will vary based on facility availability and we occasionally have practices at other venues based on weather and practice schedules.
Additionally, the team will also engage in other skating related and team bonding activities.

Level 1 - Beginner. There is no contact playing at this level.
Level 2 - Intermediate OR Age 12 and younger. There is minimal contact at this level.
Level 3 - Advanced. This is full contact play, eligible for Travel Team.
Texas Junior Roller Derby competes in regulation (by the rules) and sanctioned (for rankings) bouts throughout the year. We also will provide information about mash-up bouts in the region.
