DARWIN MEN'S ROLLER DERBY LEAGUE
That's right Darwin, you’ve got a Men’s Roller Derby league in town,
and we are the Gentlemen Rollers!
Our mission is to build an inclusive, safe and supportive league for everyone regardless of gender, age, physique or fitness level.
We enjoy a rich and rewarding relationship with our bigger sister league, The Darwin Roller Girls, and have stacks of fun training, grading, reffing, officiating and of course, playing coed with them, as the mighty "Terror Taurens"!
We’re currently recruiting and training up skaters for the 2020 season and beyond.
If Roller Derby sounds like the sport for you, don't be shy! Send us an email and come along to one of our monthly ‘intake’ nights.
We dare you to not fall in love with Roller Derby as we have.
Our Committee is made up of these fine and friendly folk:

The Gentlemen Rollers train with our sister league the Darwin Roller Girls (DRG) at the Marrara Indoor Sports Stadium. We are currently working with DRG on our 2020 training schedule. For more details, get in contact with us.
First intake for the year will be mid February. Get in touch to find out more!
Grading of levels is done in line with our sister league, the Darwin Roller Girls during our many weekly training sessions. Each level will provide you with a unique range of skills to make sure you're playing safely and confidently.
LEVELS & GRADING
LEVEL 1 - RAW MEAT
Raw Meat begins with the basics of skating and takes things back to the beginning to get you up and rolling. At intake, everyone is raw and each person will progress at their own rate and will be informed when they are ready for Fresh Meat.
LEVEL 2 - FRESH MEAT
Fresh Meat will get you working on all the basic skating skills you need to advance to White Star. At this level there is no contact and you will work on things like stopping, falling safely and skating with stability and confidence.
LEVEL 3 - WHITE STAR
White Star is the level where the bulk of your Derby training begins. At this level you will start to learn how to hit, block, whip and work as a pack in a safe manner. This level is light contact based and a great start to learning how to play Roller Derby.
LEVEL 4 - YELLOW STAR
Yellow Star is a full contact level. At Yellow Star you will be introduced to the more competitive side of Roller Derby as you will learn all aspects of full contact scrimmage and how to finally piece it all together. Yellow star skaters have the opportunity to begin scrimmaging once they feel comfortable enough.
LEVEL 5 - ORANGE STAR
Our Orange Star skaters are seasoned veterans and are eligible to be on placed on GRD's travel team where we compete at the interstate and national level.
