JUNIORS

Junior Roller Derby Program:

The program is open to all school aged skaters up to 18yrs, of all genders. If you can just stand on your skates or are an accomplished skater, we welcome you. Our program focuses on fitness, confidence, good sportsmanship, teamwork, skills development and roller derby tactics.

We currently coach 3 levels;


Beginners: Basic skate skills, basic rules and rollerderby game play.

Level 1: No/Low contact, next level skating skills and teamwork, on skate’s gameplay with basic tactics.


Level 2: Modified contact (as per Skate Victoria’s modified contact guidelines), more advanced fitness and WFTDA minimum skate skills, scenario based on track strategies and team work.


We host various guest coaches & boot camps as well as junior bout events through the year as well as aiming to travel to at least one bout event each year, schedule and numbers permitting.


This is a great way for under 18 age skaters to build confidence, resilience, enjoy teamwork in a diverse and inclusive environment.

Dates/Times:

Sessions run every Saturday of the school term at the Skate Victoria Shed (labelled Exhibition Building), Greaves Reserve, Dandenong Showgrounds. The sessions are split by skill level rather than age (we will divide into further groups as required), with some overlap of levels.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your allocated training time to ensure your skater can gear up and be ready to skate on time.


Beginners & Level 1 Class:     10:00am - 11.30am
Level 2 Class:                           10:45am - 12:15pm


*Please note that parents/guardians of primary school aged children are required to stay onsite for the duration of the session.
