      Join Sheffield Steel Roller Derby (21st July 2019)

      Who can come along? If you are a woman over the age of 18 and have basic skating ability (can stay upright on quad skates and skate forwards) WE WANT YOU! No one is born playing roller derby, so everyone starts off as a beginner. We will teach you how to stop, turn around, skate backwards, fall safely, jump, hit, and so much more! Kit required Everyone attending a new intake session must have all of the following with them on the day: Quad Skates Knee pads Elbow pads Wrist guards Helmet Mouth guard These things are for your safety and of those around you. You can get everything you need from The Manchester Skate Shop, either in store or online. We are affiliated with The Manchester Skate Shop, which means that for every purchase you make using this link, we will earn 5% without you having to do anything extra! You can also search UK Roller Derby Recyclables on Facebook for second hand kit. If you're wondering about sizing, there are some handy tables on the 187 Pads site. Anyone missing kit on the day will not be able to skate.   Loan Kit We have a limited amount of loan kit to offer new skaters. If you wish to hire our loan kit, please the New intake (kit hire) ticket option when you register. Stocks are limited, so please book quickly to avoid disappointment. Where possible, for your safety we advise that you please try to get your own properly fitted helmet - concussions are no fun! And you will definitely need to buy your own mouth guard. Loan kit costs £4 per item for 4 weeks, plus a refundable deposit of £10 (to be paid on registration for the event and refunded on return of the loan kit at the end of the first 4 weeks). After four weeks, we hope that you'll have fallen in love with roller derby and you are expected to get your own kit. Click the green Tickets link above to reserve your spot and your loan kit!  Session Outline 15:15 - new intake session opens! 15:15 - 15:45 - attendees arrive, meet the team, get kitted up 15:45 - 16:00 - new intake presentation from our Recruitment Team 16:00 - 16:15 - meet your derby family 16:15 - 17:45 - skates on!

Costs Your first session is free; after that it's £6 per session. Once you're happy you want to stay and play with us, you can join us as a member for a monthly fee, payable by standing order (reduced dues and undergrad student rates are available, just ask a member of the team). So how do I sign up? Click on the green Tickets button above to reserve your spot. How do I reserve loan kit? If you are ordering loan kit, make sure you select each item of kit you need from the Additional Items section on the order form. If your size isn't available, please email and we'll see what we can do. Click on the item and select the size you need from the drop down list, then click Add to order: A confirmation banner will briefly display: If a red banner appears, this means that the size you have selected is Sold Out. Choose another size, or contact and we'll see if we can help find you what you need. Repeat until you have selected all the items of kit you need. If you realise that you have selected the wrong size/item, scroll to the top of the order form, and select the X next to the incorrect item to remove it from your order. Once you've selected all the kit you need, select Pay Now from the bottom of the order form. You're all set! FAQs I'm trans, can I join? Of course! Trans women are women, so get your skates on! I'm non-binary, can I join? We are a member league of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, and so our skaters are women or women-aligned. If you're happy to skate under the moniker of 'women's roller derby', we'd love to have you! Is there an age limit? Yes - we can only accept skaters who are over 18. If you are under 18, you can join our junior league! Please check out What if I can no longer attend the event? (refund policy) Our new intake events are very popular and loan kit is in high demand. You may cancel your space on the new intake and receive a full refund for any loan kit you have paid for up to 7 days before the new intake event. This allows us to open up your spot or loan kit to anyone on the waiting list. Any cancellations received after the deadline will not be refunded.  I really want to join but I can't make the new intake event date. Can I still join? Yes! You must still register your place on the new intake event. Then please let us know at and we'll arrange for you to join at the earliest opportunity (within 4 weeks of the new intake event date). Is my registration/ticket transferrable? No - each person who attends must register for themselves. If you'd like to invite a friend please forward the link. The more the merrier! Can I update my registration information? Yes - please log in to Eventbrite to update your details. Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No - please save the trees! We'll have a list of attendees for each session. Any other questions? Please contact for more information.  Cover photo by Roller Derby on Film
