The New York Shock Exchange (NYSE) Roller Derby League is proud to announce it will be adopting a new ruleset starting April 1st, 2015. Although the league has trained and played by the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) Rules since its publication of the first unisex version of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) ruleset in 2011, the NYSE Board of Directors unanimously voted to take the league in an exciting new direction based on long-standing trends of popularity. And what could be more popular than a feline version of the rules of Flat Track Roller Derby? Yes, the Cat Roller Derby Association (CRDA) has released an all cat ruleset right meow. No kitten.
Experience the hard-hitting, fast-paced, insane thrills of men’s roller derby. The New York Shock Exchange is one of the premier men’s leagues in the world, having made two international tours with undefeated records in both the UK and Australia. We’re holding an open tryout for all New Yorkers who want to skate and love to compete!
Hockey players, speed skaters, rugby players, skateboarders, jam skaters, downhill skiers, and other high-intensity athletes are ideal. Skating skills are a bonus but not required—we have a strong coaching program and have produced several accomplished derby players from all disciplines.
INLINES WELCOME. The sport of roller derby is played on quad skates, but inline skates are welcome for this tryout. Please bring safety gear if you have it; knee and elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and mouthguard are required for play, but we do have loaner equipment we can share. Equipment designed for hockey and skateboarding are welcome. If you get a callback and make the team, you will be expected to have quad skates and your own safety gear.
