WAYS TO JOIN THE CoMo DERBY DAMES

Want to be a Derby Dame?  

The CoMo Derby Dames’ Future Dame training program is a 12-week course for skaters and referees. We teach you how to skate and welcome all skill levels. We also cover how to stop, turn around, fall, and make contact with others safely. Our program introduces you to the basics of roller derby play – including rules and strategy.

Drop in on any Monday and we will get you started! We provide all the basics – skates, wrist guards, helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads. All you need to bring is $5 and a mouthguard*.

The Future Dames training program is held every Monday from 7:00-9:00pm at Empire Roller Rink in Columbia, MO. We occasionally take a Monday off, so be sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Here are some things you need to bring with you:

  • Comfortable workout clothing
  • $5.00
  • A water bottle
  • *A boilable mouth guard (look in the sports section of major retailers)
  • Positive and respectful spirit of competition
  • A sense of humor

Participants must be 18 or older.
