Come and try roller derby with Uppsala’s own Jackdaw City Rollers! No previous experience needed! All of us were like Bambi when we started too! If you have always wanted to be part of a roller derby team or have just recently found out about us then this is your chance!

There are TWO optional days for trying this amazing sport out:

MONDAY 14/9 @ 18.00 Celsiusskolans idrottshall

https://www.google.se/maps/place/Celsiusskolan/@59.864093,17.6654348,15z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0xf2f8b5ae41c0d775?hl=sv

THURSDAY 17/9 @ 20.00 Johannesbäckskolans idrottshall

https://www.google.se/maps/place/Johannesbäcksskolan/@59.8625634,17.6766909,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x465fceac125dd3f3:0x16645166233d4f24?hl=sv

Also, if you wanna watch a basic practice, you can join us to Johannesbäckskolan after the intake on Monday 14/9 where we’ll show you! If you fall in love with the sport, the cool people, the feeling of having a new family, the glitter, the sweat…… you can join our fresh meat practices straight away after!

We welcome all genders, from 18 years of age. Women and trans players can join our bouting (competing) team. Men are welcome to join practices too and would also be super appreciated as referees or non skating officials. We will provide all necessary training, if you wanna be involved this way.

During our 10 week “Fresh Meat program” you’ll learn the foundations of roller derby and you’ll get all the necessary tools to pass the minimum skills test. And then, you can be a skater in our team games! Or a referee! You will learn transitions, advanced stopping techniques, basics of blocking and jamming plus the beginnings of advanced strategy.

If this is all questionmarks right now – don’t worry! We will explain it all! :)
