How wRECk works:
Participants who are new to derby or former skaters who have been off skates for an extended period will enter the program at the White level. Participants will then advance to the next tier once they have successfully completed a list of required skills. This means you learn and progress at a pace that is comfortable for you!

- Red ($40/month) – This level takes the next step toward derby competency.

This level includes Advanced Skate Skills practice and Endurance practice. If taking the competitive pathway, Red level ends with WFTDA Minimum Skills clearance.
- Black ($45/month) – For skaters ready to scrimmage! This level includes League Skills and Scrimmage practices with the Savannah Derby Devils, and Endurance practice.
