The Skateriots at the Petal to the Metal tournament in Salem OR, April 15, 2023

The New England Junior Roller Derby is a non-profit, gender inclusive junior roller derby team based in northeastern Massachusetts. We welcome all skaters aged 10-17, from across the New England region. Our team is coached by current and former roller derby players and referees, who work with our skaters to develop both skills and fitness.


Provide a fun, safe, and supportive environment for young athletes to play the team sport of roller derby and connect with an inclusive community.

Who can skate?

We welcome skaters of all genders from ages 10-17, and we welcome all skill levels. If you don’t know how to skate, we’ll teach you. If you don’t know how the rules of roller derby, we’ll teach you that too.

Parents and families

Parents and families, we welcome you too! Your support helps us keep going. We are 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization. We welcome you into our derby family.


NEJRD coaches are all flat track roller derby players, former players, and referees, who work with our skaters to help them develop into skilled athletes. We prioritize safety, with required protective equipment and high training standards for coaches and volunteers.

Our history

The New England Skateriots began in 2018 as a pickup team at the 2018 East Coast Derby Extravaganza, officially incorporated in 2021 with an all-new group of parents and board members, and changed our name to New England Junior Roller Derby in 2023. Our goal was give youth a chance to skate while many other New England teams had not yet returned due to COVID-19.

Our organization joined the United States Junior Roller Derby Association and gained official nonprofit status in 2018.

As of 2023, we are a thriving group of around 45 players and growing.
