Have you always dreamed of being a Windy City Roller? Now is your chance!
We regularly hold tryouts throughout the year. Email [email protected], tell 'em you want to be in the know, and they'll keep you informed about all tryouts-related activities.
To prepare for tryouts, here are some recommendations from our trainers and captains:
Get in shape. The more you skate, the better. Tryouts consist of a fitness test, skating ability test and an interview about your availability and skills.
Watch roller derby. Learn about the sport, the rules, and the physical demands it might place on your body and mind.
Talk to league members. Ask questions. We can tell you what it really takes. Roller girls come from all walks of life, with varying levels of experience on and off the track.
Volunteer. Get an inside look at league life and see how we operate. If you are interested, please send us your information at [email protected]
