Roller derby is a high contact, unique sport that requires athleticism, strategy, and strength. No previous skating experience is necessary! Join our "Fresh Muscle" program and start from the very beginning!
Don't want to play but still want to be part of the action? Refs and non-skating officials are always needed. Skating or not, keep gameplay safe and running smoothly. Keep score, track penalties, or blow the whistle to start the jam!
Do you like to work behind the scenes? Sign up as a volunteer! We are always seeking new members to help with game day production, merch, tickets, street team, announcing, photography, etc!
What our members say!
What if I can’t skate/haven’t skated since my 8th birthday party?
-Perfectly fine! We encourage and invite all skill levels to join us and grow together!
What if I don’t have any of my own gear?
-We cover this MUCH more in depth during orientation, but the only thing you NEED to start is your own mouth guard!
What if I fall a lot?
-Good thing the first thing we teach you as a new rookie skater is how to fall properly! Plus all the gear helps
When can I join your league?
Mass Attack Roller Derby offers multiple New Recruit Nights each year! Our New Recruit Nights are where your roller derby journey begins with an orientation into the league, signing waivers, meeting league members and seeing what roller derby practice is all about. During this first practice you will review our recruit program so that when you strap on your skates at practice #2, you will know exactly what is expected of you and what playing roller derby is all about. Keep your eyes peeled on our social media pages- we will post when new recruit nights are scheduled. But we are always accepting new players and transfers on a rolling basis! No experience is required. We will train you as a new skater or official!

All Stars skater, Linz On Ya (Linz), has been skating with Mass Attack Roller Derby (MARD) since 2016. In addition to skating, she also assists MARDS’s BOD in several roles: coaching, mediation, and diversity and inclusion. Having never played organized sports before, Linz joined MARD to meet new friends and find a new, fun way to work out and stay fit.
Linz speaks highly of how MARD is open, accepting, and friendly to all newcomers interested in joining the team. She herself was a little nervous to join, as she only had experience rollerblading prior to a New Recruit night. Learning to skate with the league, she’s made lifelong friends who she now refers to as her ‘MARD family’.
“Joining Mass Attack Roller Derby was one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life! I’ve met so many amazing and strong individuals who consistently push me to be a better skater. Roller derby is my absolute favorite workout that I’ll never stop doing!” – Linz On Ya #1015
