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 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.

Player application for Kallio Rolling Rainbow’s teams

Player application for Kallio Rolling Rainbow’s representative and amateur teams is open from Monday, May 9th to Sunday, May 22nd, 2022 at 11.59 pm.

The KRR training group makes the selections and the team charters are to be released by email and in the KRR Facebook group at the latest on Tuesday, May 31st.

In the representative team, you will get to play in the National Series and international games. The amateur team is for newer players and for those who wouldn’t like to compete in roller derby.

Applying requires

  • Experience in training roller derby
  • Rules knowledge
  • Minimum skills test or same level skills
  • Other than KRR-league players must take part in KRR-All-league training in order to determine their skill level
  • Selected players will need to become league members
  • Also to play in the National Series it’s required to have
    • Finnish Skating Association’s license and
    • Roller derby inclusive insurance

At the moment it looks like the National Series could start in autumn 2022. There is no available information about the international games yet. In the national series games, track time would be divided among the charter so that each player receives more track time in different games according to an opponent and game-specific competitive goals. This way all members of the charter have the chance to develop skills and experience levels in meaningful, safe ways in appropriately challenging games.

The final game charters will be chosen closer to the games by the team coaches together with the captains of the team.

You can apply to the amateur team if you have passed the minimum skills test or you’re on the same skill level.

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.
