Bay Area Derby Dudes, or BAD Dudes, is a pickup men’s roller derby practice in the BAD warehouse. We are meeting weekly for 2 hour practices. No commitment or skill necessary. Even skaters who only occasionally attend are welcome, as Dudes also offers a great networking environment for like-minded Bay Area skaters.
Dudes practices are currently held on Sunday afternoons, 4pm – 6pm.
Dudes practices are open to people of all genders who are at least 18 years old, and interested in learning how to play roller derby. To skate with Dudes, you must have a full set of protective gear: quad skates, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and a mouth guard. It is possible to borrow everything except for the mouth guard at our practice venue.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to your first practice so we can find someone to show you the ropes on your first day. While we prefer pre-registration, drop-in visitors are welcome. Please note that online prices are not available in person, so each drop-in visit will be charged as a single session. If you do not have WFTDA insurance, we ask that you sign an insurance release/waiver at your first practice. Continued Dudes participation requires proof of WFTDA insurance, which may be purchased directly through the WFTDA website.
