You may be asking by now “What in the world is fresh meat?!”
Well, it’s a term that the derby world uses to refer to those that are new to roller derby. These are skaters that are may be just learning to skate forward, or maybe have some experience skating, but no experience getting hit or having to push anyone out of the way. Whichever one of these types of skater you are, we’d be glad to have you join our league! You may not know yet, but WFTDA requires us to ensure skaters are safe before playing roller derby by giving every skater a “Minimum Skills Requirement” test which is a set of skating techniques you have to pass before you start playing this amazing sport.
