I Want to Join! What do I need?
All Skaters are required to have the following equipment and safety gear to practice:
Skateboarding, Hockey or Extreme Sports Helmet
Quad Style Roller Skates
MARS offers loaner gear to those without their own equipment. We ask you provide your own mouthguard, because that would be gross if we shared those!
For those looking to purchase their own gear, MARS has teamed up with Derby Warehouse to offer you a discount on purchasing gear. At Checkout use promo code "MARSJRD" to receive 10% off all eligible items!
NOT SURE IF JUNIOR DERBY IS FOR YOU? NEED TO GIVE IT A TRY FIRST?
That's Okay! We know that sometimes we take a leap, give something a try and discover it's not for us. Thats why MARS offers a "Try It Out" program to all incoming skaters! New skaters are eligible to practice with the team for 4 consecutive practices! After that, we ask that if you have fallen in love with junior derby, you make the commitment and officially join us as a MARS skater!
