Humboldt Roller Derby has a lot going on these days! The Final Game of 2014, Training, Junior Derby, Volunteer Recruitment, Community Events and Sponsorship!!!
Competitive Derby!
In addition to the five skaters that were added to the team in the late spring, HRD welcomed seven new graduates from the training camp in late July. You can look forward to seeing these new ladies in action their first time playing for the public at our upcoming October 18th game. A whole new group of skaters in training started in late July and we will welcome new competitive skaters in late October. If you know of someone who might be interested in training to play derby our next camp will start in January– it is never too early to sign up! Email for more info.
Junior Derby!
Our Junior Derby program, the Redwood Saplings, has expanded its age range to include some Redwood Seedlings ages 9-11. Girls age 9-17 started the basic skills training camp September 9th. For junior derby athletes who pass skills assessments, the Saplings competitive season will begin in January.

Volunteer Recruitment!
The Skating and Non Skating Officials are always recruiting for more help. It takes a lot of officials to run a safe and accurate game! We are also seeking to build our Board of Directors and pool of Game Day Volunteers. If you or someone you know might be interested in volunteering, email
