Richter City holds regular beginner intakes, this is how new skaters are trained and introduced into the league. Currently these run at Kilbirnie Recreation Centre from 5.30-7.30 every Sunday. Contact us at for more information, or just come along. First session is free and you can hire skates and grab safety gear there.

If you’re an experienced skater (or have non derby skating experience) or have been a member of another league, please let us know the details of your skating experience, we may be able to fast track you into the league.

If you’re interested in Figure or Speed Skating, or learn to skate (non-roller derby), please check out the Upper Hutt RollerSkating Club Website or the Upper Hutt RollerSkating Club Facebook page.

Please note that you must be 18 or older to join RCRD, but you’re never too young to start skating!

Feel free to send any questions through to us at
