OHRD Tryouts


Starting September 10th!

Email tryouts@ohiorollergirls.com by 9/9 for more information!

Tryouts start 9/10 — no late inquiries will be accepted.

Roller derby is a unique sport that showcases revolutionary athleticism, strategy, and strength — but it’s much more than a really intense game on eight wheels. Ohio Roller Derby is dedicated to building ourselves up, both on and off the track, by creating a culture that promotes community and welcomes diverse identities and backgrounds.

Requirements to try out:
  • Age 18+ and fall within the WFTDA Gender Statement
  • Sign an OHRD hold-harmless waiver
  • Attend a minimum of 7 of the 11 available practices, including the 3 mandatory practices
  • Gear: mouthguard, helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, quad roller skates with toe-stops*
  • Payment of the $25 Tryout Session Enrollment Fee (for those not enrolled in the Fall OH!RL session)

*Mouthguards are available for purchase for $1. If you do not own the required gear, we have a limited amount of loaner gear available on a first come, first served basis. If you join the league, you will be required to acquire this equipment within one month of joining the league.
