What Do I Need?
Of course you need to bring your visions of derby glory, but like any sport, there is also gear that you will need in order to participate safely. There are a lot of brands and styles to choose from so ask around and try on other people’s gear to see what size you need. We do have gear that can be borrowed until you are able to purchase your own.

•Quad Skates - Skates can be rented for $3.
•Knee Pads
•Elbow Pads
•Wrist Guards
•Mouth Piece

Why Should I Get the WFTDA Insurance?
If you want to get the full contact roller derby experience, you need the insurance. You can take part in the skating and some of the non-contact drills if you sign a waiver, but you will not be able to do much more than skate.
The WFTDA insurance grants you access to play the full sport and to take part in organized bouts and roller derby tournaments around the world. It covers you for 12 months.

Come out and join us!
Registration now open!

HRD All Stars Launch Indiegogo Campaign

The Houston Roller Derby All-Stars are Houston’s dream team - the league’s most talented and dedicated skaters cherry-picked out of its four home teams. These women train a minimum of three times a week and have played against numerous cities across the U.S. since 2006. They are currently ranked 28th worldwide by the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).

Houston Roller Derby is gearing up for a truly amazing All-Star season this year, but we need your support.
We are training like never before, and with our hard work and your support we will have the opportunity to represent Houston in one of the WFTDA Division One Tournaments this September!

A successful season requires a considerable amount of time, effort, and of course, money.  It takes a lot of Benjamins to send our All-Star skaters all over the nation to represent the 4th largest city in the US. All of this means that we need to raise $$$ and we’re asking for your donations so our skaters can focus on their training.
Our All-Stars are comprised of TWENTY amazing skaters, and here’s a little idea of how much money it takes just ONE skater to travel for an away game:  

--$75+ to buy her a roller derby helmet.
--$120+ to outfit her in our pink and black All-Star uniforms.
--$500 per trip to send her to play out of state.
Not to mention every skater has to have the requisite skates, wheels, bearings, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, mouth guards and more, all of which can add up to over $700 per skater!  
  • Donate ANY amount and you get our undying love and support for all time!
  • Donate $25 and you get two HRD stickers and a koozie!
  • Donate $50 and you get all rewards of previous levels + and an autographed All Star photo!
  • Donate $100 and you get all rewards of previous levels + limited edition All-Star t-shirt!
  • Donate $250 and you get all rewards of previous levels + invite to special happy hour with the whole team upon return from the East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX) held in Feasterville, PA June 28-30, 2013!
  • Donate $500 and you get all rewards of previous levels + a pair of VIP tickets to the bout of your choice!

ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING you contribute helps us get one step closer to domination!  We sincerely appreciate all of your continued support and love!
