Junior Derby

2017 Derby 2.0

Derby 2.0 is Silicon Valley Roller Girl’s youth roller derby program in San Jose, CA. It consists of youth ages 7-17, who make up one positional team.

Derby 2.0 consists of two weekly practices where your child will obtain the skills needed to play junior roller derby, all while building their confidence and increasing their athletic abilities in a positive environment. In addition to practices, each season includes opportunities to play in games against other junior derby teams, team building events, fundraisers, community service opportunities, and more.

Well fitting safety equipment is required for all skaters. We also highly recommend that skaters maintain primary health insurance.
