Fresh Meat

New skaters in roller derby are often referred to by the term ‘Fresh Meat’, but don’t let that scare you! We love our fresh meat here at DPR and be assured we will take great care of your tenderloins.

We do not hold try outs and we accept all skaters regardless of skating ability. We accept fresh meat throughout the year. We can even teach you how to skate! However, we greatly encourage prospective fresh meat to attend social skate sessions near you before joining us in order to best prepare you for our fresh meat program. Our home venue, The Zone in Kwinana, runs social skate sessions on Fridays and Saturdays – please check out this link for more information.

If you would like to meet with us and discuss starting roller derby in person, we hold regular information nights where skaters will be especially available to discuss beginning your derby journey with you. You can also get in touch with our fresh meat co-ordinator via email: freshmeat@dreadpiraterollers.com.au who will be able to send you a fresh meat pack and answer any questions you might have about us and roller derby. Don’t be afraid, we would love to meet you!
