We have (limited) loaner gear you can use to get started. You must bring your own mouthguard.

This is your sign to sign up and try roller derby out for the first time (or get involved again if it’s been a while). Join this awesome group of people playing an incredibly fun sport!
Gem City Roller Derby is a skater-owned and operated non-profit that was founded in Dayton in 2006. All funds raised go directly toward supporting the league and the local community. Dayton’s roller derby league is one of the top-ranked teams in the world.
Roller derby is a full-contact sport played by two teams of five players on a flat track. Each team has a “jammer” who scores points by lapping the other team’s players. The team with the most points at the end of the bout is the winner. Roller derby is a fast-paced, hard-hitting, and in-your-face game that is unique in that it is one of few contact sports dominated by women. We hope you join us for this exhibition scrimmage.
