Roller derby: fitness and fun for everyone!

The coaches are very excited about the year ahead.  We have more coaches than ever, which means a more diverse range of styles and knowledge.
We have changed our training models with the aim of offering different levels of engagement for all skaters. This means that each person can tailor their training around their personal goals and what is manageable for them.
2017 is first time CARD have offered a recreational level training option, and with this we are happy to see not only new faces, but returning ones!!  This is a great time to join a progressive league, that does its best to meet the needs of all skaters, no matter what their skill level. There is a place at CARD for everyone.
Freshies have been making incredible progress with their basic skills and footwork, and are about to move into the fun stuff, which includes partner work and contact. Nothing is mandatory, skaters decide their own level of training.
All ideas or input are always welcome. Coaches continue take their lead from skaters needs. So, let us know what you need and we will do our best to provide it! Please feel free to contact me on the email address above.
Hugs and shoves
Buzz and the coaching crew
Check out some of our amazing freshies!

(but totally not in a zombie kinda way!)

Ever wondered why derby girls have so much safety gear??
Well we do fall over ALOT!
One bit of gear that we simple cant go with out is a quality helmet that has been properly fitted.
So whats the best helmet to buy?

The simple answer is one that fits you correctly and is suited to your activity. Having a helmet professionally fitted can save you from a nasty concussion or brain injury.

Did you know that helmet lining that is worn out or damaged can increase the risk of a concussion? Or that over time your helmets capacity to protect you can be diminished?

If your helmet has been taking one for the team for a few years it has probably earned a rest on the high shelf. Your beloved helmet with all you fave stickers might not be quite up to the task of keeping your head pretty in the event of a fall.

The Boardstore team are skaters  and  know the importance of great fitting gear. The range of helmets available can be pretty daunting so go straight to the experts at the Boardstore and the team will ensure that you have a helmet that fits you properly and will protect that brain of yours!

Skater profile:

Wotzit has been a driving force behind our Ace invaders as team captiain during 2016 and is working back through the ranks in 2017 after totally kicking cancer butt in the off season! What a woman!

Life outside Derby?

Is there such a thing???? JK!! I’m honoured to be the owner of four boys (two of which play derby), am currently working 4 jobs – emergency nurse, home assessment nurse, cake decorator and business owner!

Lucky Routine?

I have had pre-bout nerves, so I’m usually happy not to be sick!!! I try to pre-hydrate and eat simple carbs. And definitely never play with hairy legs!!!!

What do you love most about Derby?

I love that it empowers you. Derby accepts everyone – it doesn’t matter where you come from. What your background is, derby has a place for you. Derby gives you the strength to be yourself. It has also become my family, my league mates are my sisters.

Athletic background?

Athletic is not a word that people often use to describe me. Derby is a sport that embraces my size. Finally, my arse is good for something!!! Probably my biggest claim to fame, is I have played representative softball at state and masters level
