We Want New Teamies!

It’s that time of year- East Coast Cyclones Roller Derby are recruiting for new members and we want you!

Join us for a free fun skate, derby demo and information session September 3rd and 10th in Bray, Co Wicklow where we’ll tell you all about our 12 week total beginners course that prepares you to join our derby family as a Rookie. Don’t worry if haven’t been on skates in a million years, or have never skated- we’ll teach you!

Roller derby is a full contact team sport that burns a rake of calories while building stamina, strength and confidence that you can take anywhere! We welcome anyone over the age of 18- women, men, all genders and none, all shapes, all sizes, all fitness levels. We are inclusive, lovely and lots of fun.

Have we caught your interest? If you fancy coming along to one of our nights, register your details here (including shoe size, so we can loan you gear) and we’ll be in touch the week before to confirm.

We still have a few places left for both open nights 21st August and 4th September- if you’re interested in coming along to have a fun skate with us and learn all about our Freshmeat beginners roller derby course starting September, register here:



“Freshmeat” Recruitment – Autumn 2017


We’re on the lookout for new roller derby talent! Ever seen roller derby and think, “Hey, that’s pretty damn bad-ass.  I could totally do that”.  No, of course not. Anyone who sees roller derby for the first time actually thinks, “Hey, that’s pretty damn bad-ass. Those people are crazy”. And you’d be right.
Come join the craziness. You don’t have to know the game, you don’t need to be fit, athletic, skinny or whatever. You don’t have to know how to skate. You don’t have to be a woman. Be a man. Be whatever gender you like, be all or none.  We welcome and will teach anyone roller derby from scratch, burning plenty of calories, teaching you amazing skills and confidence, building your fitness and strength week on week. All we ask is that you be over 18 and have a can-do will-try attitude.
Interested in finding out more? We’ll be running open skate and information sessions in Bray on two dates- 21st August and 4th September.
If you have quad roller skates and gear already, the skate and session is free to attend. If you need gear, you can hire it at a cost of €5. All interested would-be Freshies will need to register their interest, letting us know what session you’d like to attend. If you need gear, let us know what your shoe size is.
Freshmeat itself is due to start Monday 11th September and will run for approximately 12 weeks (maybe a week or two longer). Course costs, gear costs and hiring options will all be discussed at the sessions.
