It’s a space for all kinds of skaters who want to play derby in a fun, no-pressure, no-commitment environment.

Who comes to rec derby?

  • Experienced skaters who no longer play competitively
  • Retired derby players
  • Newer players looking to gain scrimmaging experience
  • Skaters looking for a low-contact option
  • Skaters who cannot commit to being members of a league

Hammer City Rec Derby is open to scrimmage-level women and gender-expansive skaters 18+.

How it works
Show up 15-30 minutes prior to the start time to pay, show proof of insurance, and gear up. We do a short group warm-up, then head right into scrimmage. Low-contact jams will be mixed in based on turnout. There is NO commitment, NO league work required. You just show up, pay, and skate!
