Bull City Roller Derby is a community of skaters establishing Durham’s first ever roller derby league.
They’ve started from scratch, and welcome new athletes.
They’re open to women-identified, non-binary, and gender non-conforming skaters and potential skaters.
That’s right–even if you can’t skate yet, you can still work with them. They teach basic skating skills, endurance, as well as more advanced scrimmage skills and drills. Email email@example.com to find out more.

Roller Derby 101
Roller derby is a contact sport, with five skaters from each team on the track at a time.
A bout consists of a series of “jams,” where one skater on each team, the “jammer” (identified with a star on the helmet) scores points by lapping members of the opposing team.
The other team members, the “blockers,” try to prevent the opposing team’s jammer from passing them, while helping their own jammer.
