Bootcamp for our 2024 season is now over. Stay tuned for our next bootcamp dates!

Thank you for your interest in FCRD! Whether you are a brand new skater and thought roller derby sounded fun, or a veteran skater from another league, we welcome you! We teach our skaters from the ground up – that means everything from the basics of skating to those big hits you’ve heard about is taught in our 14 week training period.


Each season, we host two recruitment nights to provide a sneak preview at what derby will be like! There will be an informational meeting giving you all the tools you need to start your derby journey and an open skate with the rest of our league and meet some new friends. Both recruitment nights will be held at Olahrama (previously B&D South Skate Center) 13903 E S Noland Ct, Independence, MO 64055.

Stay tuned for our next recruitment nights!
