Bay Area Derby Dudes (BAD Dudes) is a pickup all gender roller derby practice held in the BAD warehouse. Dudes also offers a great networking environment for like-minded Bay Area skaters. No commitment or skill necessary to join.
Dudes practices are currently held on Sunday afternoons from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at 2635 Peralta St. Oakland, CA.
The entrance is a green door and you have to ring the doorbell for admittance.
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, but note that we may not have all sizes available.
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to your first practice so we can find someone to show you the ropes. While we prefer you create an account and pre-register for Dudes practices on wellnessliving.com, 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.
