IWRDL wouldn’t exist without the Inner West community. Whether you’re interested in playing, refereeing, volunteering or sponsoring the team, there’s a place for anyone who’s looking for an inclusive, friendly and energetic derby family.

Experienced derby girl looking to transfer?

We’d love to meet you! If you’ve passed minimum skills, you’re welcome to trial with us for two weeks fee-free to see if you’re into the Inner West vibe. Contact us at

New to skating (or never skated before!) and keen to learn?

Congrats on taking your first wobbly steps into derby! We will be running a learn to skate program starting in March 2020 that will teach you all you need to know to start playing roller derby! More information will be posted about this program soon so send us as email or watch this space!

We’ve also partnered with the University of Sydney Roller Derby League (USRDL), who have an awesome beginner program designed to get you bouting in no time. While it’s a university league, anyone can join! It’s pay-per-session with skate and gear hire for just $2 – great if you want to try it out before you commit to getting your own gear. Skaters who pass their minimum skills test with USRDL are then eligible to transfer to the Inner West. For more information, check out USRDL here.

Love derby but not keen on skating?

Inner West is entirely run off the sweat, tears and barbecues of our incredible volunteer community. Whether you’re interested in refereeing, commentating or supporting the league in organising bouts and running fundraising events, there’s a place for everyone on our team.

Interested in sponsorship opportunities?

As a not-for-profit sporting team, support from the local community means we can let the skaters focus on skating. If you’re interested in a one-off or longer term partnership, contact us on
