 Fresh Meat is Just Beginning 

June 3rd marked the start of our newest group of fresh meat, but don’t worry another is just around the corner!


Are you interested in learning how to play roller derby? What are you waiting for?!

WoRD’s Fresh Meat practices will teach you how to skate and the basics of roller derby, providing you with the skills you need to skate with our league.

Step 2: Gather up the stuff you’ll need for your first practice

  • Your gear (we have limited gear available to loan):
  • A copy of your license or state ID
    • You must be 18+ to join!
    • Not 18? Check out our Juniors League!
  • A copy of your insurance card
    • Playing roller derby without health insurance is a major don’t!
  • A check or cash for your dues and insurance
    • Dues are currently $40 a month
    • You will need supplemental WFTDA insurance ~ $75 per year (paid in December)

Step 3: Arrive early and gear up!

  • Bring all you paperwork and documents to the first night of practice
  • Be ready to SWEAT

In the meantime, try a derby workout!


(our practice space)

WoRD is located at 34 Suffolk Street, Worcester MA 01604. There is plenty of  parking available in the lot. As you walk up to the building, look to your right. There is a recessed loading dock with tiny yellow stairs. Go up the stairs, inside the door on your left and follow the arrow signs marked”[Worcester Roller Derby logo] THIS WAY”.
Don’t be scared!  It looks kind of deserted and creepy, but what better place to practice a BAD ASS underground contact sport?
