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!

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.

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.)
