2020 Freshmeat program:

Prepare yourself for a killer 2020 by signing up for Freshmeat!

East Vic Roller Derby’s Freshmeat program is a 10 week program for new skaters. You’ll learn the fundamentals of skating and roller derby, increase your fitness and discover the thrill of cruisin’ around on 8 wheels.

We have 4 Freshmeat intake dates planned for 2020, where we explain how roller derby works, fit you for any gear you need to borrow, and get you out on the track to develop your skating skills. 


If you’re over the age of 18, this program is appropriate for you. There’s no need to be a master skater to start out with us: our coaches will train you up from the basics all the way to the top, at your own pace. So don’t be scared to join.


WHEN: Sundays 4.15pm - 5.45pm

PREP: Please arrive by 3.45pm on your first day so we can sort out your gear and paperwork.

WHERE: The Shed, (Exhibition Building), Greaves Reserve, Dandenong
