Play Roller Derby for CRG!

Posted on: Sep 07, 2014

Skater Grim Carrey tried out in July, 2012 and has already worked her way up to being on the Carolina All Stars team.

Have you always wanted to be a Carolina Rollergirl? Saturday, October 4th is your next opportunity!

Are you bored? Looking for some action? Did you play sports when you were younger and now you miss being a part of a team? Or maybe you’re looking for a fun and challenging workout to get in shape? Or make some friends? These are all perfect reasons to join our league! And there are many many more!

This is the second try-outs session we are holding in our new warehouse space. We are very excited! CRG try-outs are closed to the public, only trainers and skaters that are trying out are allowed. The space is very tight on “extra room.” No children are allowed in the warehouse for safety reasons, but bad-ass moms are strongly encouraged. Thank you for your understanding. We want to keep things rolling at an efficient pace since we have limited space and time.

When and Where?
Fee: $10
Saturday, October 4th  |  10:00am – 12:00pm

IMPORTANT: please arrive 15-20 minutes early to get geared up. Try-outs will start at 10am!
CRG Warehouse – please visit Join Us for warehouse location and to view a map.

What equipment must I wear during tryouts?
• helmet
• elbow pads
• knee pads
• wrist guards
• roller skates
A few pairs of skates are available to borrow in a VERY limited size range. It is highly recommended that you bring your own skates. Try to borrow a pair from someone you know. No inline skates, traditional quads only.

What equipment is optional to wear during tryouts?
• mouthguard (will be required once you are doing contact drills in the future)
• butt pads
• knee gaskets, etc.
Limited protective gear is available to borrow on a first come, first serve basis.

What type of clothing should I wear?
You should wear something COMFORTABLE. A tank top or t-shirt is perfect with athletic shorts or capris. And don’t forget socks.

What else do I need to bring with me?
• a bottle of water for you to drink to stay hydrated
• proof of age
• proof of insurance
• a positive attitude

For insurance purposes, you will be required to sign a waiver before participating in CRG tryouts. Please email us at for more information and to RSVP. We’d love to know you’re coming!

The Carolina Rollergirls hold tryouts quarterly throughout the year, so if you miss out this time, get prepared for next time! More info on how at Join Us. To keep up with updates about basic skills practices, tryouts and skating help/advice from current CRG skaters, join the CRG Butcher Block Google Group.

See you on the 4th!
