Carson Victory Rollers

Roller Derby

Roller derby is a contact sport played on roller skates. Two packs of five members roller skate in a series of mini-match ups (jams) in which both teams designate a scoring player (the jammer), who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team.  Although there are a number rule sets leagues may play by, the Carson Victory Rollers is a flat track league and play by WFTDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association) rules.

 

Women’s Adult League Program Description

The Carson Victory Rollers is a player-owned & operated non-profit team that works to facilitate an environment where all women, 18 & over, and of all athletic abilities can participate in both a fun and empowering environment.  All participants will be required to complete a six week off-skate prior where they will build endurance and strength while learning terminology, rules and safety. Upon completion, members will graduate to the FreshMeat On-Skate training program where they will learn how to skate, fall, and build minimum skills while learning how to perform safely on roller skates. At the end of the FreshMeat On-Skate training, members will be required to pass the WFTDA minimum skills test in order to graduate to the veteran team where they will be able to participate in bouts, scrimmages and other activities.

All members will be responsible for providing their own gear by the end of the six week FreshMeat Off-Skate training program, as well as purchase USARS skater insurance in order to begin skating in the On-Skate FreshMeat program.

This program is looking for adult men & women and junior boys & girls for our Adult and Junior Roller Derby leagues to participate as officials & non-skating officials (NSO).

Officials will be taught how to recognize and call penalties and NSO’s will be trained how to properly time and track both points and penalties.
