Interested in getting out on the track yourself in team colours or referee stripes?
Freshie training, for aspiring derby players and refs is offered twice a week and opens for new members every six weeks. Our next intake dates for 2017 are:
Email your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll be sent all the details and then we’ll see you on the track! Use the same email address to ask any questions you have meanwhile – we are fun, friendly and supportive and love answering!
We’re okay if you’re not sure derby is for you... yet! Or if the price tag of the first session had you a little hesitant to sign up in the past. We invite you to come along and try the first Freshmeat session for only $10! Sign the waiver, enjoy 2 hours of sweaty derby goodness and then make a decision on whether you’d like to join the league (although we’re sure you’ll fall in love with the sport like we have!) We’ll then credit the $10 towards your league fees when you roll on back that second time.
Even if you're not keen on being on skates there are other ways to get involved at South Sea Roller Derby. We are always on the lookout for Volunteers, Bench Staff (Benchies) and Non Skating Officials (NSO's) to help out with our bouts and our training.
Volunteers do all the things that help our bouts run smoothly. From manning the merch table to greeting fans at the door, volunteers are highly valued members of the league.
Our Bench Staff are there to keep their team organised and motivated during the games. Bench Managers decide who goes on the track, and Bench Coaches adjust the team's strategy during the bout. If you are one of those people that love sports strategy, have an understanding of gameplay and know exactly what the team needs to do to win - then become a benchie!
NSO's are there trackside to help in the running of the actual game. Roles range from penalty box timing, to scoring and everything in-between. It's the closest you can get to the action without being on wheels!
If being vollie, benchie or NSO seems right for you please email email@example.com to express your interest.
See you at the rink!
