What we're about

Welcome to CT Men's Roller Derby: The Connecticut Death Quads

Greetings & welcome to the exciting world of roller derby.

A little about us:

We are a skater operated organization, pursuing non-profit organization status. The league was formed in 2007 and has been part of the governing body of men's roller derby, The Men's Roller Derby Association (MRDA). since it's creation.

The team, the DeathQuads, has played games near and far, including locations locally like Vernon, Connecticut; Northampton, Massachusetts; & New York City, as well as traveled to places like Fort Wayne, Indiana and Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The 2017 season is here before we know it. This year we were faced with rebuilding the team. That's where you come in. There's no better time than now to start learning the game of roller derby.

Where shall we start?

Let's begin by getting you on skates at some public sessions. We will teach you the basic skills needed to safely participate in practices in the future.

How does this all work?

Once you've decided that YES YOU WANT TO BE A DEATHQUAD, you'll need to purchase your own skates & protective equipment and mandatory supplemental insurance though our sister organization, the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). We can talk more about that in the future. Initially, we will be joining in practices with local leagues around us; men's leagues out of Northampton, MA & NYC and women's leagues in Waterbury & Vernon, CT. Once there are enough guys ready to skate, we will start having practices, likely on Sunday evenings, at RollerMagic in Waterbury. Skaters will eventually be expected to pay dues to CTMRD to cover rink rental fees and league insurance coverage.

This may seem like a lot of information and a lot of commitment, and it is. We play a serious sport, but I assure you, the enjoyment that comes from it is worth every bit you'll put in to it.

If you haven't done so already, find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ctmrd/

Now, let's talk about when we can go skating!

Coach, CTMRD
