DED know that we have a lot of young supporters who would like to be involved in roller derby too. In February this year we started our own Junior Roller Derby Team. This is for girls and boys aged 8+. Training takes place once a week on a Sunday at our training venue - Avonside Girls' High School. Training sessions are coached and involve learning skating skills through games and drills and learning about the game and rules of junior roller derby in a safe, fun and supportive environment.
Junior Roller Derby is a non-contact version of roller derby and has its own rules (visit http://www.juniorrollerderby.org/).
