In brief: Limit activities
Without knowing what your shoulder injury is, it is probably safe to say of all activities listed aerobic walking should be fine until diagnosis is made.
Roller derby is an intense contact sport and could definitely aggravate your shoulder if it is injured. See your doctor if you have shoulder pain, difficulty with range of motion for further work up, possible xray for a clearer diagnosis.
