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!

All S1 helmets are CPSC Certified and ASTM Certified which means they are designed to protect against single high-impacts as well as multiple low-impacts (which are very common in roller derby). Impact testing shows the S1 helmet to be 5X more protective than regular soft foam helmets. All S1 helmets come with sweat-absorbing sizing liners which are anti-microbial and moisture-wicking. Check out S1's Pick a Helmet page to find out which size helmet will fit you.

We've included all Triple 8 safety gear in our derby starter kit. These aren't the beginner pad sets you'll find in other fresh meat packages; these pads are upgraded with high-density memory foam and maximum padding made to actually protect you from roller derby’s hard hits and falls. After many years of derby, these are still some of our favorite pads no matter what level of derby you're playing. All of these items are available in sizes JR–XL. Click on the Triple 8 sizing guides below:


Everyone at Medusa Skates wears the SISU Aero mouthguards because they're ultra-thin, comfortable and strong. At 1.6mm, you can easily talk, drink and breathe during a game without having to take them out. Using only hot water, the SISU can be re-molded up to 20 times and are compatible with braces. Click for SISU fitting instructions.


  • Mota Freedom Outdoor Wheels (+$50 for 8 wheels) - Save $10 on these wheels when you add them to your Fresh Meat Package at time of purchase! Every skater needs a pair of soft outdoor wheels for street skates, cruising the Veloway or rolling around the neighborhood. There's nothing more embarrassing than face-planting because your wheel got stuck on a piece of gravel. 82A hardness; 62mm x 41mm.

  • Riedell Leather Toe Caps (+$20 for a pair) - Don't goop up your new skates with duct tape like everyone else! These leather toe caps keep the toes of your new skates from getting shredded and scuffed up on the ground (which they inevitably will).

  • Basic Skate Tool Kit (+$25) - You’ll need a few simple tools to adjust your trucks and toe stops, or change out wheels and bearings. This basic skate maintenance kit will let you do all that! Includes a 5-in-1-multi tool and a Bones bearing press. Multi-tools come in assorted colors and will be included randomly. (Bones bearing press is currently unavailable.)
  • JABreeze Gear Spray (+$5) - This pad spray will keep the derby stank away! Made in Austin, TX by skaters for skaters. All-natural, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial blend. Ingredients: distilled water, emulsified alcohol, witch hazel, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, green tea.
  • Medusa Skates Tee (+$15) - Save $5 on this Medusa tee when you add it to your Fresh Meat Package at time of purchase! Support your local derby-owned skate shop and be the envy of all your friends, obvs with a black unisexy tee featuring our awesome logo (which was designed by local Austin tattoo artist Stacey Martin!).

5 of 5 It's a Steal! October 27, 2019
Reviewer: Justine from San Marcos, TX United States  
Purchased this package with the Sure Grip GT-50s. I have a wider foot and the boots on these are super cushioned and extremely comfortable to skate in. Aside from immediately having to swap out wheels due to the type of surface I was skating on, this was a wonderful beginner skate to start with. I would highly recommend this package to anyone who's just starting out and on a budget.

5 of 5 Very Helpful! August 4, 2019
Reviewer: Meatball Sub from Slingerlands, NY United States  
Rugrat and her team were super helpful during the whole process, always ready to answer questions via email and over the phone. When I had sizing issues I was able to exchange them!

5 of 5 Freshie First Skates July 2, 2018
Reviewer: Melissa Lynch from Boyertown, PA United States  
I have recently joined a Derby League and got one of the fresh meat packages. All of the equipment was high quality and I love the GT-150 skates. The helmet I originally requested had a lead time so one of the employees, Glitter, helped me to find another color combo option that worked for me and I got all of my stuff with in three days. It was a great experience! From customer service to the quality of the products I received, I would defiantly recommend any freshie starting out, to check out the kits and take advance of the discount.

5 of 5 Definitely a great starter package! June 19, 2018
Reviewer: Stephanie Hopkins from Stafford, VA United States  
I just started with a team as a freshie and wanted my own gear, so I decided to go for a fresh meat package rather than buying all my gear separate. This was my first time buying skates and I was so grateful that they contacted me to see if I was sure about the size skate I picked. And I'm glad they did cause I had indeed picked out the wrong size haha. And even when I picked out the wrong size pads they allowed me to exchange them and even helped me with figuring out if those would be a better fit. Over all I am a loyal customer now to Medusa. I recommend them to anyone who ask me where I got my gear and anyone who is looking for a fresh meat package.

5 of 5 BEST EVER May 27, 2018
Reviewer: Savanna Robinson from Fort Smith, AR United States  
As a complete newbie, this deal was an absolute life saver. Everything I needed to start. Outdoor wheels were a good choice so I can practice skating at home. The team was fantastic. I accidentally ordered a super big helmet. They emailed me before they sent out my order. Saved me from myself! I’m very very pleased. Would recommend. Medusa will be where I get all my gear from now on ❤️❤️❤️
