Want to be part of one of the fastest growing sports in the UK? Then CRD wants you!

We’re hosting our final recruitment day of 2016 and we’re on the lookout for skaters, referees and non-skating officials (NSOs) to come join our amazing league.

Complete newbies are welcome as are seasoned skaters, so come along and give it a try.

Never skated before? Not a problem. We’ll give you all the beginner derby skills you need, from falling safely to stopping, transitions and skating backwards. Plus, we’ll build up your knowledge of the game and rules meaning you’ll soon know your packs from your penalties.

We’re excited to meet you all but we figure you’ll have some questions about how the day will run, and what’s involved once you’ve joined the league.

Please arrive at 18:45 for a prompt start at 19:00. You can get changed into sports kit with trainers in the changing rooms which are just inside the entrance to Pulse on the left hand side.

We’ll begin the session with a chat about who and what Croydon Roller Derby is, why you guys want to join us and a chance for us to answer any of your questions about joining CRD. After that we’ll do some on-skates and off-skates activities to give you a taste of what training at CRD will be like.

You will need to bring:
– Sports kit – T-Shirt/Vest, Shorts/Leggings, Socks
– A pair of Trainers
– Helmet
– Quad roller skates
– Knee pads
– Elbow pads
– Wrist guards
– Mouth guard
– Bottle of water

We have a limited amount of kit available to borrow on the day, but please let us know in advance so we can accommodate you. You will need to purchase kit in time for the first session after tryouts.

Please confirm you are coming by dropping us an email at recruitment@croydonrollerderby.co.uk so we can add you to the list. Plus, feel free to email us any questions in the run up to the day and we’ll do our best to answer them.
