As the only junior roller derby league in Louisiana, Red Stick Roller Derby Juniors is dedicated to bringing the exciting sport of roller derby to girls and young women 6 to 17 years old and providing opportunities for skaters of all skill levels to learn and play in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
Because roller derby is considered an extreme youth sport, RSRDJ prioritizes safety, with mandated protective equipment and high training standards for coaches and volunteers. RSRDJ aims to empower our skaters by bringing together girls and young women from diverse communities and helping develop their self-confidence, leadership skills, healthy decision-making, athleticism and overall fitness.
Who Are We?
We are Baton Rouge’s all-female youth roller derby league for girls, ages 7 to 17.
The Rascals are:
- A non-profit organization
- A Junior Roller Derby Association (JRDA) member league
- Affiliated with and coached by Red Stick Roller Derby.
- A group of strong young women that support one another and build each other’s self-confidence
How do I get started?
The Rascals have open enrollment so you can start rolling with us as soon as you want. We have beginner level practice every Friday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Our coaches will teach you skating fundamentals, as well as the skills you need to move on to our intermediate program.
The intermediate practice occurs every Friday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. We provide loaner skates and protective gear to get you started, but you’ll want to purchase your own gear as you continue your derby journey.
How much does it cost?
Monthly dues are $45 per month. You can also pay for three months at a time at a discounted rate of $105.
Dues payments are put towards facility rental, JRDA membership fees, and league expenses. Board members and coaches are volunteers and do not receive payments from RSRDJ.
