So you want to be a Rollergirl? Print


Of course you do! Being a Rage City Rollergirl rocks! But it rocks pretty hard and that means it can sometimes be tough, but it will always be rewarding.


WHAT WE DO

We are an all-volunteer, skater-managed, non-profit organization dedicated to developing, promoting and sustaining the competitive sport of women’s roller derby in Alaska. We have two teams – Orange Crush, which plays against other teams around the state of Alaska, and the Rage City All*Stars which play against other nationally and internationally ranked teams. In previous seasons our All*Stars travelled all the way to Japan and more recently to Texas, Oklahoma, and Colorado. 


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • Roller derby requires monetary investment – Gear, dues, insurance
  • Time Commitment – Skaters practice 2 hours a day 2-4 days a week. Also, members are involved in committees and volunteer time during games and other League events
  • Roller derby is mentally challenging – You need to learn the rules of the game and ask questions
  • Roller derby is physically challenging – Rollergirls are athletes!

Get Your Gear! Print

Gear Up! Our insurance requires a minimum of skate helmet, mouth guard, elbow pads, wrist guards, knee pads, and quad speed skates. Any veteran rollergirl on our league will be glad to give you advice on where to start. Toe stops must be a light color and all knee and elbow pads must be covered with teflon tape to prevent marking indoor track surfaces. (Ask for this at your local skate shop.)

You may buy derby gear and get gear advice locally in Alaska from rollergirl-owned 2N1 Skate Shoppe!

You can also check Sin City Skates; if you (use code RAGE60), Derbyville, Fast Girl Skates, Roller Girl Skates, Connie's Skate Place, Via Derby Skates, Skate Mall, or (for used gear) DerBuy.
