Join Us

The Cambridge Rollerbillies are always looking for new skaters, referees and officials to join our league! If the idea of skating around at high speed whilst battling your way past the opposition sounds appealing, then Roller Derby could be the perfect team sport for you!

We run regular Fresh Meat courses for new skaters, which will get you started with skating and Roller Derby, no matter what your experience with Roller Skating is.

When’s the next course?

Our next Freshmeat Course will begin in January 2017. Our previous intake was oversubscribed so make sure to get in touch so you don’t miss out!

To get more information, please get in touch at

So what’s involved?

Before each fresh meat course begins, we have a meet and greet where you can try out some skates and kit for free and have a chat with our skaters to learn more about the sport and the Rollerbillies. The Facebook event for the next one is here!

Whether you’re a complete rookie or already have some experience skating, we will teach you all the basic skills you need to master during a 10 week beginners course commonly known in the derby world as ‘fresh meat’.

On the course you will learn the required skating skills essential to become a roller derby player, like how to start and stop and most importantly, how to fall safely.
We will go through the basic rules of the game including the principles of hitting, how you score points, what the penalties are and how to tell what the refs mean when they’re waving their arms at you!

Whether you’re thinking ‘HELL YES’ or ‘Um, I want to but I’m a bit scared’, get in touch!

We don’t bite. We’re more than happy to answer your questions and share our love of all things roller derby.
