Quad Skates (4 wheels - no inline skates) – Check with your local roller skate shop for recommendations on derby skates.
Helmets - Look for extreme sports, bicycle, hockey, and skateboarding helmets that have a sticker inside indicating that the helmet has been rated for safety standards. Some ratings to look for include ASTM and CPSC, among others (if you're not sure, ask a salesperson).
Knee Pads - Make sure that the knee pad fits tight enough so that it will not slide off. Knee pads will compress over time and wear out.
Elbow Pads - Elbow pads should fit snuggly just like knee pads. You should treat your elbow pads just as you would knee pads.
Wrist Guards - Wrist guards are designed to protect your hands and wrist, they absorb impacts to the hand and give support to your wrists. Some guards have splints on the top or bottom and some have splints on both sides.
Mouth Guards - Mouth guards protect against concussions, the inside of your mouth, and teeth. There are a couple of different styles to choose from. Many skaters use the boil and mold mouth guards. You may have a custom one made by a dentist or buy a non-molding type typically used by people with braces.
All skaters must have these forms completed and on file before their second practice. For your first practice, just bring your required gear. You can request any of these forms from our secratary Vicki (firstname.lastname@example.org). We welcome new skaters to join us during certain months throughout the season. Email us for specific dates via our contact us page. Find us on Instagram or Facebook to see what we are up to!
