Portland Maine Men's Roller Derby
Roller derby is a full contact sport and roller derby players are athletes. Many skaters are on the track at two to three times a week and workout outside of practice. You’ll want to be honest with yourself about the level of effort required to play and the potential dangers associated with it.
We welcome all adult men (18+) interested in playing roller derby to throw on a pair of skates and required equipment (we have rental skates and some extra pads), stop by a practice, and see what the sport of roller derby is all about. Our practices are always open, and you can contact us easily about this through our Facebook Page.
Remember, roller derby is a full contact sport. Although it is played safely, injuries do happen. Be aware that, in playing roller derby, you do run the risk potential injury.
A number of area rinks hold open skates during the week for you to get your skate legs under you and many of these are attended by league members and members of our sister league, Maine Roller Derby. Check out Happy Wheels Skate Center in Portland, Rollerdrome in Auburn, and RollerWorld in Topsham.
In general we look for the following skills, which can be improved during open skates:
