Recruitment & Tryouts

ROCK is looking for skaters, referees, and volunteers!

Meet Lexington’s original roller derby leagues at any of our Meet & Greets or lace up some skates and attend our ROCK boot camps and tryout! Register here.

Meet & Greets

Thursday, September 7th from 7pm and 9pm At West 6th Brewery

Grab a beer and meet skaters, volunteers, and referees. Ask questions, and learn more about the sport of derby!

Watch a Scrimmage

Monday, September 11th from 6:15pm and 8:30pm At The Bread Box (Behind West 6th Brewery)

Grab a seat and see what it’s all about!

Attend a Boot Camp

Thursday, September 14th from 5:45pm-9pm and Thursday, September 21st from 5:45pm-9pm

Boot camps are $15 each, or $22 for both days. You may pay in advance via PayPal, or with a check, credit card, or cash at the door. Sorry, no refunds. There is no charge for Meet and Greets, or tryout day. You MUST attend Tryout day to be considered for ROCK membership. You will also need to bring your own quad skates, a skating (not bicycle) helmet, a mouth guard, elbow pads, wrist guards, and knee pads.
Any Boot Camps we hold are to prepare you for the skills we will ask for during Tryouts. They are very intensive, both physically and mentally, and definitely worth it. Have questions about gear? Email us at

Note: Our space is NOT climate controlled, so dress appropriately and hydrate well the day of and days leading to bootcamps and tryouts.


Sunday, September 24th from 9am-12:30 pm

The Tryouts themselves are often very stressful to potential skaters, but you should know that you are judged more on your attitude and determination than you are on your skills. Everybody starts somewhere and we will teach you everything you need to know!

Or maybe you want to be a part of the game without as big a commitment? Being a Non-Skating Official (NSO) may be the way to go for you!
Volunteers, such as NSOs, may join ROCK at any time. Simply contact us and we will let you know what you can do to help out. We need help with everything from setting up the track, to keeping score, or even being a referee! Training will be provided, so no experience is necessary!
