Are You Thinking of Joining Roller Derby?

If you’re looking to challenge yourself, build self-confidence, level up your quad skating skills, and make new friends, then roller derby is the sport for you! When you skate with us, you join an international family of like-minded individuals. The derby community has grown to over 450 WFTDA-affiliated full and apprentice leagues as of June 2017. It’s not uncommon to run into fellow derby people in airports, on the subway, on vacation, or even in your own friend group- all linked by a shared passion.

Roller Derby is Fun!

Let’s be serious- behind the athleticism and competitive spirit, there’s lots of goofing off and camaraderie, plus skating is already so much fun! Our league can be found attending events like Syracuse Crunch together, visiting local bars after bouts and practices, and we’ve been known to throw a mean potluck.

How to Join?

New Skaters: Each year SCRD holds a new skater boot camp, a multi-week course led by experienced skaters designed to get new skaters familiar with the skills needed for derby gameplay. Boot camps are open to all experience levels and you must be 18+ years old to participate. We have loaner gear and scholarships available to cover boot camp fees.

Our next new skater boot camp will take place outside at Kirk Park (Covered Basketball Courts on 300 West Borden Ave, Syracuse, NY 13205) and will run Mondays 6:00-8:00pm from June 3 to August 26, 2024.

We will have two boot camp information sessions where you can meet some skaters, learn about SCRD and try on gear for sizing. Feel free to come to one or both information sessions.

  • Sunday, April 28, 3:30-4:30 pm
