Join Us

We’re always looking for new skaters and we accept new members throughout the year.  We have training locations all over the Perth metropolitan area.

Our introductory training program runs on a twelve week cycle so if you’re interested in skating, send us an email.

If you can’t skate, don’t worry; some of our best skaters put wheels on their feet for the first time when they joined WA Roller Derby.  We have training locations both north and south of the river so you’ll find somewhere to train near you.

Have questions? Check out the New Members’ FAQ!

Some of our new members after a training session stretching out their sore muscles and looking saucy while they do it!  Work it ladies!!

WA Roller Derby is hosting two information sessions in the lead up to our next intake for new skaters, referees and non-skating officials.  These sessions are held at our regular training venues during our level 1 and 2 training sessions, so you’ll get to see some skating action and what a training session involves.

The sessions will be hosted by our recruitment coordinator, Fury, who will take you through the ins and outs of Roller Derby and give you all the information you need to join and answer any questions you might have (you’ll probably have quite a few!).
