How to Join

Are you looking to join the HRD Sapling family? We can't wait to meet you! Our Sapling season starts in the fall and ends in May. 
We offer two programs, our Sapling Competitive Team and our Training Camp Program!

Training Camp Program
The Training Camp is open to new skaters ages 11-17 who want to develop the fundamental skills needed to play roller derby. You do not need prior roller skating experience to join. This camp has three sessions: Level 1 derby skills, Level 2 derby skills and a finishing school. Each session will be approximately 3 months. Participants will finish the first two sessions with an opportunity to take a skills assessment.  Participants ages 11-17 who pass the skills assessment are eligible to move up to the Sapling team.  Skaters who either do not pass the assessment or who are ages 9-10 will move on to the Finishing School in order for work on the skills needed to move on to the Sapling Team.   
Level 1 Schedule: Tuesday & Thursday: September - November, 4:15pm-6:00pm @ Redwood Acres! 
(exact 2018-2019 dates coming soon!)
