Fresh Meat

New recruits are affectionately known as Fresh Meat. YRG creates a supportive environment into which we welcome skaters of any ability. We’ll work you hard while teaching you what you need to know to skate safely.  Sorry juniors and dudes, only women 19 years and older are currently able to play in YRG.

Player intake is done periodically throughout the year. Occasionally, we will take new players outside of the scheduled Fresh Meat training. Player transfer from other leagues are welcome at any time. Contact yrg@yukonrollergirls.ca at any time to let us know you’re interested in skating and to get information about the next intake.

Gear list

Dress in athletic wear and bring running shoes for the off-skate workout. From top to bottom, you’ll need:

  • a helmet
  • mouthguard
  • elbow pads
  • wrist guards
  • knee pads
  • roller skates (quads, not blades)

Check out the Fresh Meat gear package at Rollergirl.

For your first two weeks on skates, you’ll sign a waiver and be covered under league insurance. After that, you must purchase insurance annually from CRDi.
