COVID -19 UPDATES
Updated July 2022
IS THERE GOING TO BE A 2022/2023 SEASON?
The short answer: We hope to schedule games soon but aren't quite ready.
The long answer: MRD resumed practice in March 2022, and we are currently finishing up our first bootcamp since pausing practices in 2020. Our skaters are in the process of refreshing their skills or learning to play derby, and when thinking about returning to games, we want to make sure our skaters can do so safely.
CAN Y'ALL STILL TEACH ME HOW TO PLAY ROLLER DERBY?
Yes! Our summer bootcamp is almost over and no longer open to new skaters, but we will be holding a mini-bootcamp in September 2022.
Follow our Facebook page for bootcamp announcements. It's always announced there first so make sure you get our notifications!
You can also send us an email so that we can put you on the bootcamp waitlist. Lastly, check out YouTube to learn some basics on how to skate like a derby player.
CAN I DONATE TO THE MEMPHIS ROLLER DERBY?
Yes, please! With our return to practice and our imminent return to games, we are resuming our fundraising efforts. We are holding a Skate-a-thon in August 2022 - check back here for a link to sponsor a skater!
Please shoot us an email or facebook message with any additional questions we have not answered here. We'll try to get back to you with 24-hours.
Stay well and safe everyone. Wash your hands so that we can bump into each other on skates again.
