No Coast Junior Derby is a youth roller derby league for all levels of skaters ages 6-17 who are interested in learning the sport of roller derby and working on skating & derby skills. Our curriculum takes brand new skaters learning how to skate to highly skilled roller derby players. Skaters are individually assessed for skills & knowledge of the rules of the game. They move up in level when they are safe to do so.

Team Levels:

Our Skate School (level 1) program is led by graduated junior derby skaters and No Coast adult skaters. We teach participants how to skate on quads & the basic skills needed for roller derby such as: stance, stride, stops & falls.  Skaters must master these basic skills before they are eligible to scrimmage and play with the Thunderpups (Level 2). Coaches will work with the skaters on controlling themselves while on skates & introduce the rules of roller derby. 


Our Thunderpups (level 2) are the beginner and intermediate team. This team is a mix of skaters who've passed the Level 1 and/or Level 2 assessments but are not quite ready for our travel team, yet! "Leaning" or positional blocking is the main focus for this group, but we'll also introduce derby hits & counter-hits. Level 2 skaters may be eligible to participate in scrimmages and unsanctioned games and mixers. Some Thunderpups may also participate in level 3 drills and scrimmages, as deemed fit by coaches, in an effort to build up individual skills for leveling up to the Furies.

Our Furies are the advanced team & comprised of only Junior Roller Derby Association (JRDA) level 3 skaters. Furies are our travel team that is JRDA Sanctioned & participate in sanctioned level game play for JRDA Rankings. Furies skaters will be participating in scrimmages and game type drills in all practices, Some Furies skaters may "play down" to assist Thunderpups on the track giving the Furies skaters an opportunity to demonstrate their leadership and communication skills. 


he Winter 2022 Session will run Jan 10 - Apr 2


Thunderpups and Furies will practice for 2-hour at LSF (7600 N 70th St) on Mon & Wed 6pm - 8pm.

Our competitive team, the Furies, will also practice on Saturdays from 2pm - 4pm. *No practice Mon Jan 17, Mon Feb 21, Mon Mar 14, Wed Mar 16*

Skate School will be held on WEDNESDAYS only, 6pm - 7pm, from Jan 12 - May 30.

Note: Due to COVID-19, practices may need to be shortened to 1-hour per day, 1 day per week or cancelled altogether. Please arrive 15 mins early to gear up and be ready to roll at 6 pm to ensure all the time we have is taken advantage of!

In addition, all skaters must bring the following to EVERY practice:

  • Black & white t-shirts or scrimmage shirts

  • Pants, Shorts or Leggings that cover your thighs (avoid rink rash from falls)​; we recommend athletic wear for comfort and flexibility.

  • Athletic shoes

  • Water bottle

  • All required gear (see below)

ALL PRACTICES are held @ LSF Sports Complex (7600 N 70th St, Lincoln, NE).

Please arrive 15 mins early to gear up. 

Your Registration Includes:

  • Practices & scrimmages led by No Coast adult skaters & roller derby referees.

  • Skater insurance coverage by Athos Insurance Services during current session.

  • Off-skates (endurance exercises) tailored to improve skills while on skates.

  • Training on derby rules and game review.

  • Team bonding outings and activities such as pot lucks meals, trail skating and flyering.​​

\Required Equipment

  • Helmet: We recommend hard shell helmets, since they provide the best protection against possible concussions; look for helmets that are "multi impact certified" or "dual impact certified"​ and use a layer of EPS foam along with a softer layer

    • Common helmets worn by adult skaters are s1 Lifer and Triple 8 Brainsaver

  • Wrist Guards: any wrist guard with a hard plastic guard.

  • Elbow Pads: any elbow pad with a hard plastic shell on the elbow

  • Knee Pads: any knee pad with a hard plastic shell on the knee

  • Mouth guard:

    • SISU mouthguard highly recommended as it is remoldable and relatively comfortable, however, will not work with braces; skater must be able to talk with their mouth guard in​

  • Quad (4-wheel) Non-Inline Roller Skates:

    • Skates should have adjustable toe stops, which screw in partially, then lock to the height with either a nut or a set screw; skates with toe stops that connect with a single screw without adjustable height will make it much harder to learn toe stop skills​

  • Jerseys & Armbands: Jerseys are reversible & available in different cuts/styles through our team's Frogmouth online web-store.​ Furies are required to purchase and wear a jersey and armbands for bouts. Thunderpups are not required to wear a jersey or armbands but are welcome to purchase from Frogmouth. Thunderpups may purchase and wear a "scrimmage top" instead, as a cheaper alternative.
