Recreational Roller Derby
Welcome to the recreational side of the Nashville Rollergirls!
NRG’s Recreational League, the Revolutionaries, is dedicated to training and developing roller derby skaters at all skill levels and providing opportunities to compete in roller derby without the commitment required for the national level. We welcome all skill levels, including but not limited to anyone interested in learning the sport of roller derby, trying out for a derby league, becoming a referee or just working on skating and roller derby skills.
Our mission is to provide a fun, safe and competitive environment for all participants. Come in as a beginning skater, an ice or inline skater wanting to try out quad skating, a retiree, or an existing derby girl or referee from another league who wants additional coaching and track time.
Tuesdays 6pm-9pm. Derby 101 for beginners on the 1st Tuesday from 6pm-7pm.
Practices are conducted by current NRG skaters and Rec League members and are held at the NRG practice facility, the Blood and Thunderdome.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring water! Familiarize yourself with the rules by visiting www.wftda.com/rules
$25 a month for all practices or $10 per practice, up to $25.
When paying dues, add (Rec League) after your name.
So...what gear will you need?
Quad skates Helmet Mouthguard Elbow pads Knee pads Wrist guards Tennis shoes
We have a limited amount of loaner gear available, but you are required to provide your own mouthguard.
A great place to purchase gear is Asphalt Beach, which will give you a discount if you let them know you are skating with NRG’s Rec League!
Flat Track Roller Derby is a full contact sport. In general, you decide the level of intensity with which you want to participate, but injury is always a possibility. Our trainers are highly skilled and safety is their first priority at all times. They will do their best to ensure that all participating skaters meet a basic level of track safety.
