Shoreline Roller Derby (SLRD) is recruiting new skaters, referees and non-skating officials. Recruitment events take place at Avery Point, Uconn in Groton, and The Skate Inn, Plainfield CT. Events are free with no obligation to join.

SLRD is open to all genders, and all shapes and sizes are welcome. You must be 18 or older and need to bring proof of insurance and a mouth guard. Those interested in acting as a non-skating official do not need the proof of insurance or the mouth guard as they will not be skating. For all others, skate rentals are available for $5. Helmets and pads will be available to borrow, but come early as supplies are limited.  No skating experience is required.

Skaters at SLRD are all ages and come from all over including Guilford, Jewett City, Norwich, East Lyme and beyond. We are a diverse group, with careers ranging from IT managers to bakers, school bus drivers, psychotherapists, property managers, stay-at-home moms, respiratory therapists, just to name a few. What we have in common is a love for this growing sport and the supportive community we create for each other. As one skater says, “I joined roller derby because it's the only sport where everyone is welcome. Your gender, age, and size do not matter. It's acceptable for everyone, and I love being part of that.“
