Roller Derby requires the following equipment. If you do not have access to this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your sizes and we will provide gear for you. You MUST provide your own mouth guard that is properly molded to your teeth. You can pick up an inexpensive “boil & bite” mouth guard at places like Walmart or Canadian Tire. Without a mouth guard you will not be allowed to skate.
