Is roller derby for real? I heard it's fixed?
Modern roller derby is real and it is absolutely NOT fixed! When you attend one of our bouts, you’ll quickly learn that roller derby is a modern competitive sport with governing rules and trained athletes. Our players train tirelessly for this sport and we uphold and admire the athleticism of modern roller derby.
Will I be able to follow the action if I don’t know how roller derby is played?
Brush up on the rules of the game in advance and you’ll be sure to follow along on game day. We also have knowledgeable announcers to help keep fans up to speed on what is happening during each jam, and any penalties incurred. Additionally, there are always Derby United volunteers walking around with “Ask Me” tags at each bout specifically to “talk derby” with you. Brush up on your roller derby lingo with our glossary.
