Skates and a helmet are the required equipment but we very highly recommend wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads. Protect yourself so you can be here for a good time, and a long time. We have several sets of protective gear and skates to loan out, just let us know in advance!

Wear the same kind of clothing you would to any fitness class, but feel free to get spicy with it! There's a reason derby girls are famous for wearing tights and booty shorts--nobody likes rink rash on exposed skin, and loose or baggy pants tend to get pulled down by your kneepads. Channel your favorite 70's skating look with those knee high socks, go full jazzercise, or wear all black, we love you doing you. As long as it’s comfortable to get sweaty in, it should work just fine.

Some locations have water available, but please bring a full bottle or two, whatever you need for an hour of skating. Outdoor classes are subject to weather so sunscreen, sunglasses, or even a light jacket might be called for!
