Hello future teammate! We are so excited that you are interested in joining the Lowcountry Highrollers roller derby team! We welcome all 18+ women and gender expansive folks looking for athletics and camaraderie in an inclusive and supportive environment! Your first step in joining us is by participating in our Highrollers In Training Program (HIT program).

Our Highroller in Training (HIT) program is a 12-week training program for all new skaters. Our HIT program is for skaters with no experience or limited experience with roller skating and/or roller derby. Over the 12 week program our experienced coaches will lead you through drills to build basic, safety and endurance skills on and off skates. Of course, you will also learn the rules & basics of how to play roller derby! We strongly recommend coming to every practice. We will be going over new rules and roller derby gameplay every practice and we don’t want you to miss out on important information!

You will need a mouthguard, helmet and pads on at all times in order to be on skates. We do have a few pairs of loaner gear, but our supply is limited and is first come, first serve. It is expected that you have all your own equipment within the first 2 weeks of practice. We highly recommend starting by ordering a package from Bruised Boutique. (www.bruisedboutique.com) They have roller derby package deals that will get you everything you need to get started. The “Rookie” and “Hero” packages are our favorites!

Every practice you will need to bring with you the following:
*Mouthguard (We recommend the Sisu Brand). *You must bring your own mouthguard, we do not give out loaners.
Quad Skates (Check sizing – sizing for skates is different than shoe sizes)
Pads (Knee pads, Elbow pads, Wrist Guards)
One Black & One Pink Shirt (These can be something you already own and it can have any design on it)

Becoming a team member of the Lowcountry Highrollers is an experience you will never forget. It is filled with fun, fitness and family. With everyone working towards a single goal on the track you become not just teammates, but family. Team members of the Lowcountry Highrollers do more than just practice. The Lowcountry Highrollers is a 501c3 non-profit, which means the league is run by us, the skaters. Lowcountry Highrollers also work to give money back to our community through partnerships & donations with other nonprofits. So not only do we benefit, so does our community!
