GMRD Rookie Roster Launch

Make roller derby your resolution. Join the GMRD Rookie Roster 2/7/17

Join Green Mountain Roller Derby in 2017!

We hope you all had a safe and fun New Years celebration. Green Mountain Roller Derby is back in action and ready to hit the track in 2017!

Is joining GMRD your New Years Resolution? Then we have some exciting information for you.

We are pleased to announce a new structure for accepting rookie skaters and officials in 2017. Instead of a rolling weekly recruitment, like we have done in the past, we will be moving to a system where we accept new skaters and officials in intermittent waves throughout our season. With this new structure, our new recruits will begin their training in a group and progress through learning new skills together. We anticipate many benefits from this change, including a stronger sense of community among our rookies and an improved flow through lesson plans.

Our first new recruit wave of 2017 will be on Tuesday, February 7th. 

Whether you’re interested in becoming skater or an official, Green Mountain Roller Derby is here to teach you everything you need to know.

RSVP on our Facebook event page to let us and other rookies know that you’re coming!

Here are the details:

WHEN: Tuesday, February 7th 8:30pm – 10:00pm.
WHERE: In the Blue Ribbon Pavillion at the Champlain Valley Expo.
WHAT: We’re launching our first round of training for new skaters and officials.
If you will be skating, you must be at least 18 years old. We recommend wearing clothing that you’re comfortable exercising in.

You will need to bring:
+ Mouthguard (we recommend SISU mouthguards –
+ Water bottle
+ Photo ID
+ A good attitude

We’ll provide the rest!

You can get a head start by going to our Recruits page and filling out the new skater form.
