Derby Fitness

Derby trainings require a high level of fitness. Most of the girls have never done a sport before derby but that didn’t keep them away! To keep us in shape and to prevent ourselves from getting any unwanted injuries, we include cardiovascular endurance exercises, strength training exercises and lots and lots of stretching. So be prepared to break a sweat!

Derby Name

All derby girls get to choose a derby name. Like a superhero or an alter-ego, you can pick one that identifies you and makes you stand out from the crowd. However, you have to visit the International Derby Roster to ensure you don’t pick the same name as someone else. Derby grrrls take their originality very seriously!

So, ready to be a Chilli Padi?
