Application for Kallio Rolling Rainbow’s teams

This is an additional application for Kallio Rolling Rainbow’s B team. Through this binding charter application, players will be selected for the teams, and a player commits to playing in their team’s games if possible within their own schedules. We encourage all those interested in playing to apply! However, you must have completed the minimum skills test to apply for the team

The B team has registered to play in the SM series I-Division, where mainly other club B teams, smaller clubs, and combinations of even smaller club teams compete.

There can be a maximum of 3 crossover players between the A and B teams, but there is no limit to transfer players between the B and C teams (Piritori’s Aces). You do not need to assess your skill level; you can apply to the teams if you are interested in playing!

In the SM series, WFTDA, and 1st Division games, WFTDA rules are followed, and players must commit to following these rules. This also includes WFTDA’s gender policy ( Kallio Rolling Rainbow has decided in a vote following the spring meeting that WFTDA’s Gender Policy’s “gender expansive” term covers all genders except cisgender players.

The application period starts on October 16, 2023.
The application deadline is October 20, 2023, at 5:00 PM.

The course fee is 60 €.

For some of the skaters, we can rent skating gear for 15 €. We don’t have enough gear for everybody so we’ll go with a first come, first serve mentality. The people who signed up first get the gear first.

We’ll encourage y’all to buy your own gear as it’s the most sure way to get the gear. We’ll help you with all of your questions regarding skates and gear!

Let us know if you’re still interested in our course! We’ll answer all of your questions!

Many European derby shops have ready packages for beginners, Roller Derby House and Sucker Punch. There’s also FB group Derbykirppis Rollaattori. You should write your own ”in search of” post as the group is slow and, thus, sadly, you can’t be sure you’ll find gear from there.

Roller Disco KRR (loves) Oiva 29.6.

Join the celebration of Pride week, Kallio Rolling Rainbow and Ravintola Oiva are hosting a Roller Disco KRR ❤ Oiva 29.6. at 18:00.

Come dance, party, and swirl on skates with us! Skates and other gear can be borrowed for free (most adult sizes available). First-time skaters will receive help, no one will be on their own. We recommend firstimers use all the safety gear. All skaters will be skating at their own responsibility. Ravintola Oiva is not accessible; a few steps at the entrance, no accessible toilet. The staff will help if needed.
