Roller Derby Training Sessions
All of our training sessions are held at Circus Unit (next to Smyths), St Davids Retail Park, Llansamlet, Swansea, SA6 8QL.
We hold our beginners roller derby training sessions on a Monday from 8-10pm. Basic skate skills are required to start attending beginners sessions. Come along to our wreck skate and one of our friendly Wrecksperts can teach you these. During beginners sessions we will teach you all the skating skills necessary to play roller derby as per the WFTDA minimum skill requirements. Full safety kit is required for all of our sessions, we have basic kit that you can borrow to begin with but as you progress, upgrading to your own kit will be essential. For more information about kit check out this article.
Once you have completed most of your minimum skills you will be invited to our Wednesday training session from 7-9pm. During these sessions you will learn the rules of roller derby, gameplay and tactics. Refs and NSOs are also vital on a Wednesday as we usually end the session with a scrim.
Advanced training runs on a Monday alongside beginners from 8-10pm. You need to have passed your minimum skills and be a confident skater to attend these sessions.
