Potential Fresh Meat (PFM) is a volunteer-run roller derby club open to all who identify as women 18 years and over interested in learning and practicing the skills needed to play roller derby. Some of our members skate with us to get ready for tryouts for leagues all over the Pacific Northwest, while others skate with PFM because it’s fun and great exercise.
Please note that your participation in PFM does not guarantee you a space on any team, nor is PFM affiliated with any league or place of business.
In order to participate in PFM practices, please see our New Skater page!
- The cost per practice is $8.00 for all drop-in skaters. We also have a “punch card” of 6 drop-ins for $40. Speak to any of our core group members if, after attending a few practices, you want to join PFM Core.
- Be respectful and courteous to coaches and fellow skaters: NO side-talking, even to ask “what did she say?”, when the coach is talking. If you don’t understand a drill, coaches will ask if there are any questions at the end of their explanations.
- Though it is not required to know every rule inside and out, it is highly, highly recommended that ALL skaters read through the WFTDA rules as most drills are based on an understanding of how the game is played. At the very least, blocking/target zones and cutting the track are key points to understand.
- Keep an eye on our calendar for any schedule changes and upcoming practices!
