Roller Derby Leagues
There are a number of roller derby leagues within the Maritimes. If you are looking to get started in the sport of roller derby you should contact your local league.
Most have an in-house learn to skate program, but they only accept new skaters a few times a year. If you are a visiting skater you should contact the league ahead of time to see what they require for drop-in fees, insurance information, etc.

709 Derby Girls | St. John's, Newfoundland
Teams: The Neversweets, The Vixens
709 Roller Derby is Newfoundland and Labrador’s first roller derby league. While the players are all female, the referees, volunteers, and committee members are co-ed. 709 Roller Derby is a not-for-profit organization that offers a new and exciting sport to the St. John’s area. We strive to promote active and healthy lifestyles.
The league was established by two home-grown gals (Cemeterri Jane and Myk Tytan) who had an itch that needed to be scratched. Nothing that was already up and running could do the trick. They were looking for something that had just the right combination of athleticism and attitude. These go-getters decided they would call out to the other ladies of St. John’s and hope for a response. Quite a response was received! In December 2009 the league was established. With some additional hard behind the scenes work, and a great deal organization, January 13, 2010 was the first official practice for 709 Roller Derby.
