mprdc girls

just wanna have fun

Whether you’re completely new to roller derby, or you’re a skater looking for a club to call home, everyone’s welcome at Mornington Peninsula Roller Derby Club.

Not for profit

MPRDC is a grassroots club run by members for members, supported by volunteers.

For all members

We’re competitive for sure but first and foremost our club is about having fun doing what we love no matter what your skill level is.

 

We're Local

We welcome members from all over but especially from the Frankston & Mornington Peninsula area.

What's stopping you?

I’ve never skated before

Never fear, we have experienced coaches who take new skaters through all the basics like rolling, stopping and turning. You’ll learn at your own pace, and we make sure you’re comfortable on skates first before playing any contact.

I don’t own skates or equipment

And you don’t need to. We’re fully stocked up on skates, helmets, knee, elbow, and wrist guards. So all you need to bring along is a mouth guard and your happy self.

I don’t know the rules

Roller derby isn’t a game we grow up watching like we do with other sports. Not many know much about the rules and how to play when they first start. We make learning about the game part of our training sessions.
