Sac City Rollers new and improved 8 week Rec League program is BACK!!!!
Our Rec League is Derby 101, created to prepare skaters for league tryouts - an 8 week boot-camp designed to teach skating fundamentals while building the strength and endurance necessary to play this exciting full-contact sport. You need no prior skating experience to participate!
Rec league skaters consist of those who have never skated, but are interested in learning about roller derby, veteran skaters looking to keep a small amount of roller derby in their lives, and others who are looking for an opportunity for exercise and fun. All women over 18 are eligible to play, no matter your skating experience!
The next 8 session will begin January 23rd, 2017. Rec League classes are Monday nights from 6:30pm - 8:30pm, held at our practice headquarters:
The Cell Block
1636 Kathleen Ave
Sacramento, CA 95815. – Map It
PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY (BY 6:00 PM) WEEK 1 FOR REGISTRATION.
The cost is $10.00 per week or $70 if you pay for the entire eight week session by 1/23/2017.
What You Will Need:
Roller Derby is played on quad roller skates (NO inline skates)
A mouth guard
We encourage skaters to bring their own gear, but there is LOANER GEAR AVAILABLE, if you are still deciding on whether or not that is an investment you are ready to make.
PLEASE bring your own mouth guard, water, and athletic shoes for off skates conditioning.

Derby Heroine: ALL of the fiercely dedicated, inspirational, talented ladies of SCR -- pssst: I sooooooo want be able to hip check like HN Icy when I grow up!
Loves: Family, especially being an auntie (there’s no better gig) … Camping … Sacramento summer nights … Music (the louder the better)
Hates: Chores … Cooked mushrooms … Liars (yep - you suck!) … and, lower back muscles that scream at me when I skate because I’ve neglected my core
Worst Injury: ankle fracture
Favorite derby position: Blocker
Personal theme song: Bad Reputation by Joan Jett
Fun fact: I have a strange obsession with tech gadgets, which I’m told is going to either make me broke or deaf in the future – maybe both …
Personal motto: Fall down seven times, get up eight
Why derby? The challenge. The strategy. The fitness. The friendships. Derby restores my sanity and is therapy for my soul …
What made you try Rec League? My younger sister aka Gloria Sass with JBLM Bettie Brigade. Her relentless encouragement gave me the guts to show up at a SCR boot camp even though the last time I was on skates they had metal wheels. I’m forever grateful to her … Thanks, Sass xoxo
Would you do it again? I can’t imagine the thought of not doing it again - ‘nuf said!
