South Sea Skate School is for you! This 6 week LEARN TO SKATE program is open to ALL AGES 18+ and all genders* and focuses on entry level roller derby skills for aspiring players and refs.

*We welcome all genders to join however as a member of the WFTDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association), all South Sea Roller Derby players are compliant with the WFTDA gender statement.

South Sea Skate School is suitable for absolute beginners and those who can skate but have little or no derby experience. Ideally you will be able to propel yourself around the rink without holding onto the rail but previous experience is not necessary.

Training is 5pm to 8pm Sundays and 7pm to 9pm Thursdays at Sk8house in Carrum Downs.

You will need to wear a helmet, mouthguard, elbow pads, wrist guards and kneepads to take part. No gear? No problem – purchase your own mouthguard and you can borrow the rest from our kit. Rental skates are available from the rink for $4 per session.

The total cost for the 6-week (11 session) Skate School programme is just $107 for aspiring players (which is less than $10 per session)! The $20 that you pay for the first session is all that you pay to South Sea Roller Derby for the 6 weeks training with 2 sessions per week. To continue beyond the first session you will also need to pay for mandatory Skate Australia membership (valid until end of Dec 2022). Currently, the cost for this is $87 for a Senior Development membership.

Can't make it on Sunday 20th Feb? Alternative start dates available:
- Thurs 24th Feb
- Sun 27th Feb
- Thurs 3rd March
(Please make a note in the comments of your order to let us know!)

At the conclusion of the 6 week Skate School you will move to monthly membership, currently $65 a month for skaters and $10 a month for referees.
