they don't. they pay for monthly dues, secondary insurance, skates, equipment and (on some teams) uniforms.
Back in the 1980s and earlier, skaters who played roller derby did get paid. Currently, no roller derby skaters (that I know of) get paid to play, though it would certainly be nice! :) In fact, playing roller derby can be quite expensive! You have to buy your gear (skates, wheels, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmets, mouth guards, etc) and your uniform, and most leagues charge dues to cover rental for the practice space, league insurance, and other fees. Many leagues are nonprofit organizations, so all the money they raise goes back into the league to pay for things like flyers, tickets, venue rental, EMTs, security, and travel. Nonprofit leagues also do charity work, either holding charity bouts to donate proceeds to a given charity or by volunteering and raising money in other ways.

Elliot poi poiser derby
2-4 dollars a week
In the 1978 Kentucky Derby, Affirmed paid $5.60 to win, $2.80 to place and $2.60 to show. His eventual Triple Crown rival, Alydar, paid $2.60 to place and $2.40 to show. Believe It paid $2.80 to show.
They do not get money! They get fame
To win, place, and show, Orb paid $12.80, $7.40, and $5.40, respectively. These were for $2 bets, and include the original $2 in the amounts. $20 bets paid 10 times these amounts.
There is no specific number. I used to do martial arts and i am a girl. i would be still be doing if they hadn't paid so much. Boys and girls do martial arts.
