Kit

We have some protective kit for skaters to borrow while they’re finding out about the sport. This is available on a first come, first served basis. If you let us know what you need, we can usually sort it out, we can also provide skates for you to borrow.

Required kit list:

Quad roller skates
Skates should be made of soft leather or synthetic materials and should be ankle height. Hard plastic quad skates that come above the ankle are not really suitable for this sport.

Skate helmet
A good quality helmet is essential. Helmets should be skateboard or hockey style and certified for multiple impact.

Wristguards
Wristguards should fit snugly. Single- or double-splinted wristguards are perfectly acceptable, it’s all down to personal preference.

Elbow pads
Elbow pads should be street / ramp style with a foam inner and hard-capped outer.

Knee pads (heavy duty/vert skate style)
Knee pads are arguably the most important safety equipment in roller derby. Like elbow pads they should be street / ramp style with a foam inner and hard-capped outer. It’s worth spending good money on these!

Mouthguard
Mouthguards should ideally be the boil and bite variety for a snug fit. These can be picked up from any sports outlet for a few pounds. We do off-skates derby as part of our warm-up each week, so a mouthguard is essential, even for beginners as you will be doing contact from the start.

Clothing
Please wear comfortable, breathable clothing you can move in. We recommend exercise leggings and a good sports bra, and a cotton top and don’t forget socks!

Miscellaneous
Please bring a small hand towel and a bottle of water and be prepared to sweat!

Referees and Non-Skating Officials

As well as new skaters, we would also like to welcome any prospective skating officials (referees) to join us. Referees can be men or women 18 years and older. We always welcome new non-skating officials into the Seaside Siren Roller Girls. If you are a prospective official please contact us using the form below to see how you can get involved.

When filling in the form please let us know if you are interested in joining our new skaters sessions or wish to join as a referee or non-skating official – thanks!
