Carolina Rollergirls Tryouts Jan 9, 2016

Posted on: Dec 21, 2015

Change your life, play roller derby. We want you! Regardless of sports background, shape or size, roller derby accepts all women. Don’t worry about not knowing all the skills or how well you execute them, everyone started in the same place.

When: Saturday January 9, 2016 – 9:00 am
Where: Carolina Rollergirls Chop Shop – Peak Automotive
831 Us 64 Hwy W,
Apex, NC 27523
Between Lake Pine Dr and Cary Autopark Pl/US-64

CRG try-outs are closed to the public, only trainers and hopefuls are allowed.

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.

What type of clothing should I wear?
You should wear something comfy. 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!
