Don't want to play, but still join?
 PPDD is always looking for people interested in becoming a skating referee or non-skating official. If you're interested 
in being a part of roller derby, but you don't want to play, consider becoming an official.

How to Join PPDD

PPDD holds Open House nights throughout the year.  All women 18+ interested in joining are invited to learn more about roller derby, our league, and the requirements of being a Derby Dame.

During our Open House you will go over league requirements such as practice time, committee work, event attendance, and general league information. All interested skaters will sign up to attend a boot camp which will be scheduled approximately two weeks later, and sign insurance liability release waivers. No skates or gear are required at recruit night.


Visiting Skaters

If you are an established skater traveling through our area or from a nearby league our practices are open unless otherwise stated. If you would like to join us for a practice, please contact us. We prefer you contact us in advance so we know you are coming or in case we are having closed practice. New drop-in skaters are invited to come to a non-scrimmage night for their first practice.

Monday - 7:30-9:00 pm City Auditorium

Wednesday - 8:00-10:00 pm City Auditorium

** each practice will cost $5 if you are not a member of the Pikes Peak Derby Dames. **


Experienced Skaters & Transfers

If you are a skater that has missed an Open House, you still have the opportunity to join. Please contact us for information on how to schdule an assessment or to learn about the transfer process.

Potential transfers can attend general practices for $5. Upon joining PPDD, they would have those funds deducted from their joining fees.


Preparing for Boot Camp

Interested women are highly encouraged to brush up on their skating skills before attending boot camp as you will be required to pass a basic skating skills test in order to join the league. Skate City holds public skate sessions several times a week. Thursday night Speed Skate class is especially helpful. There is also an outdoor rink at the El Pomar Youth Sports Park. It's free and open to the public.

Download the WFTDA minimum skills requirements to get an understanding of what we will be looking for at boot camp and what will be on the skills test if you are invited to join PPDD.

During boot camp, potential skaters will be assessed to determine their skill level, and is a good time for members to determine skater's attitude, availability, and work ethic to make sure they are a good fit for PPDD.

After boot camp, select skaters will be invited to become a full member of PPDD.
