Come skate, see what we are all about, and get your questions answered! By registering for tryouts, you will be automatically included in all email communication about these classes.
Bring your gear, or just dress to workout with a pair of sneakers, and get a taste of what tryouts will be like! We will be doing on and off-skates drills, a detailed Q+A session, and MORE! No need to “register” separately for this, attendance is completely optional. Just show up 10-15min early, or even a few minutes late! If you miss it, we hope to see you on Tryout night!

A LITTLE RUSTY?
Check out local open skate sessions – Happy Wheels Skate Center in Portland, and Rollodrome in Auburn host multiple skate sessions evenings and weekends. Or, if you’re considering waiting until next cycle to try out, check out Derby Skate Club. Almost our entire league has had experience skating with DSC (formally called Derby Lite) before joining MRD. Get your skate body ready for tryouts and your future derby career!
