How To Join

Want to join Gotham Girls Junior Derby? Awesome! We can’t wait to meet you! All skaters starting with GGJD will need to fill out our start-up paperwork packet containing JRDA liability waiver, JRDA medical release, GGJD Contact/Health Info, and GGJD Media Release.

Reserve a spot by purchasing a 10-week pass and come ready to learn skating and introductory derby techniques.

For skates and protective gear (helmet, wristguards, elbow pads, kneepads, mouthguard), we recommend GGRD sponsor Five Stride Skate Shop in Williamsburg, which is run by two of our Gotham All Stars and Team USA skaters, Bonnie Thunders and OMG WTF.

If you're a Skater with another junior league…

Approximately every 1-2 months GGJD is happy to welcome nearby scrimmage-cleared (JRDA level 3) visiting skaters to our Saturday Advanced Skills & Scrimmaging practice. The cost of these classes will be $25 and skaters must come with proof of insurance and a signed JRDA liability waiver.

Long distance visitors may observe or participate in 2 practices at no cost (or more with the purchase of a class package). For more information on being a visiting skater, please contact Puss 'n Glutes at

If you are interested in transferring to GGJD…

Relocated skaters from other leagues who have not yet been cleared for scrimmage will be asked to join our next Basics & Beginners session. Skaters who have been previously cleared for scrimmage (JRDA level 3) and who provide a letter from their former league may arrange to attend an advanced Saturday practice for a skills assessment and possible placement in advanced Tuesday and Saturday practices.

You don't have to be a competitive skater to join the GGJD community!

If you are 8-17 years old and are interested in alternative ways to be involved with the league, please email email Puss 'n Glutes at for more information about our inaugural Junior Ref program, and more!
