For summer 2024, all our practices are open to new folks interested in trying out roller derby as a skater or an on- or off-skates referee. We practice Thursdays in Greenfield (7:15-9:15pm) and Mondays in Holyoke (6:30-8:30pm). 

Folks of all genders, all types of bodies, and all levels of experience welcome! We will teach you everything you need to know. Need more reasons to join us? Scroll on!

Coming soon: Juniors

If you or someone in your life is a kid or younger teen interested in roller derby, sign up to be the first to hear when we restart our juniors program, which will hopefully be soon!

(Older teens [16-17 years old] are welcome to come try out an adult practice with the consent of a parent/guardian.)

Join Interest List

Why Join Us?


From our founding we have been a multi-gender league where everyone skates together. We believe that trans and nonbinary athletes belong in sports!

ALL Bodies

There is no “ideal” body type in roller derby; on the contrary, having a mix of body types is a benefit! 

Many different roles

You don’t need to want to do contact in order to join us. You don’t even need to skate! We have recreational members and on- and off-skates officials who hang out, get nerdy about the rules, and travel near and far to referee bouts. 

Sliding scale Dues

We don’t want money to be a barrier for anyone to join us. We have a sliding scale of $0-$50 for monthly dues. We also have gear (skates, pads, helmets) that can be borrowed on request.
