SVRG Starts New Recreational Team

Posted on April 26th, by demonic in Recreational League. 1 Comment

Love derby but can't commit the time to play on a league?
Coming back from an injury and not ready for super-competitive play?
Can't get enough derby on your current league?
Come join SVRG's brand new recreational team!

Starting in May, SVRG's Circuit Jerks will be hosting recreational skating drop-in practices and scrimmages!  We aim to promote roller derby in a non-competitive way by hosting cooperative skating practices, holding mixed scrimmages with other local leagues, and keeping ourselves fit with both on- and off-skates workouts.


  • Own and wear protective gear: mouth guard, wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, and helmet (and preferably your own skates, but rentals are available)
  • Know how to derby skate. This means you have attended an SVRG bootcamp, passed WFTDA minimum skills testing, or have skated with another league. If you’re looking to learn how to skate we highly recommend signing up for an SVRG bootcamp session by emailing
  • Be at least 18 years of age. If you’re not, sign up for our Junior Derby program for girls aged 7-17 by emailing
  • Have current USARS or WFTDA insurance. If you don't have either forms of insurance, then email for the 2011 USARS membership form.

Practices will be held on Tuesdays from 6-8pm at San Jose Skate (397 Blossom Hill Road) starting May 31st.  The fee is $10 per session each time you attend, and attendance is on a drop-in basis. If you have any questions, please contact CynTax at Those interested in attending should also fill out the interest form.
