Gear

Safety is our #1 priority. To skate at our practice space you have to be wearing each of the following items: QUAD SKATES, HELMET, ELBOW PADS, KNEE PADS, WRIST GUARDS, MOUTHGUARD. We have a limited amount of loaner gear, but you must bring your own mouthguard - a $1 boil-and-bite from Wal-Mart is fine! When you're ready to start getting your own gear and skates, visit Asphalt Beach in East Nashville. Their staff will help you find the best properly-fitting gear and skates for your body, and if you tell them you're with the Nashville rec league you'll get a derby discount.

Fine Print

All skaters must sign in upon arrival, pay for your session in advance, and sign a liability waiver before you take the track An off-skates workout will start every practice so please bring sneakers.

Safety is our #1 priority. We reserve the right to ask any skater to sit out or skate the Ref Lane if we feel safety is at all an issue. Don’t worry though, our veteran Rec Leaguers are happy to help if you need a little extra attention. We will make every effort to teach those with limited skating ability the basics of roller skating, but resource availability may be limited at times. Rec league members who want to work on basic skating skills are always welcome, but we encourage them to also take advantage of outside resources such as skating rinks and greenways. Brentwood Skate Center offers structured skating lessons for $12 per session. We strongly encourage skaters to carry primary health insurance and that a high deductible "emergency" WFTDA insurance plan is available upon request for a small annual fee for skaters without primary health insurance. Wear comfortable clothing, bring water, and come ready to sweat! If you plan on scrimmaging, familiarize yourself with the rules by visiting www.wftda.com/rules.
