The addition of roller skates improved roller derby from its less-interesting origins as "derby," a sport played by a bunch of hats. Celebrate the roller skate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two months of boot camp (up to a $65 value) from South Side Roller Derby in Texas City.

South Side Roller Derby's Roller Derby Boot Camp ($40 per month, first month free) fosters a love of full-contact skating and prepares would-be rollers to try out for South Side's permanent elbow-thrusting team. Every Monday night at 7:30 p.m., amateur female skate-spillers ages 18 and older meet at the House of Derby to prepare the paperwork (IDs required) and skate-tightening skills to get on the banked track by 8 p.m. for an hour of intensive instruction. South Side Roller Derby coaches guide rapid rollers through drills for speed skating, conditioning, agility, and bypassing enemies in the form of online pop-up ads.

Aspiring skater-shovers ages 7 to 17 throw down at the all-girls Junior Roller Derby Camp ($65/month, first month free) every Monday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Men get in on the action on Tuesdays from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in their own boot camp ($40/month, first month free) for a newly formed all-guy group .

Derbyists must have health insurance and should pack their duffle bags with a towel, helmet, pads, skates, and their big-kid pants. The House of Derby shares loaner equipment on a first-come, first-served basis.

South Side Roller Derby

Throughout the year, more than 100 ladies compete in the South Side Roller Derby league, racing each other and racking up points during exhilarating bouts on treacherous banked tracks. Owned and operated entirely by volunteers, the league is run by people who enjoy the sport and care about sharing it with their community. In addition to a regular schedule of matchups, the ladies host roller-derby bootcamp classes replete with speed skating drills, derby-specific exercises, conditioning regimens, and hand-holding techniques in case the DJ announces a couples’ skate.
