Medusa Skates Fresh Meat Package has everything you need to begin playing roller derby. Our discounted beginner derby package includes over $300+-worth of gear, including a complete pair of derby-ready roller skates, a dual-certified helmet and all required protective gear, including wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads and a heat-moldable mouth guard. This rookie package is different than what you'll find elsewhere, because we've only included gear that we would actually wear ourselves for derby- and still do! Just because you're starting out, doesn't mean you should skimp on protection. We know that buying roller derby gear can be overwhelming, so please don't hesitate to call Medusa Skates at (512) 203-7203 or email us at with any questions. We love helping new derby skaters!
