If you are 8-17 years old and interested in trying it out, you are invited to come watch our practice, learn about roller derby and get more information about the team. An adult should accompany each prospective skater. Based on interest and ability level, we can discuss next steps for future participation. Email us at TXJRDBOD@gmail.com.
We generally practice twice each week on Sundays at PanAm Park and Wednesday evenings at the Millennium.
