Try it Out!

One of the most exciting times in our roller derby season is only a few weeks away! For some the most exciting time would mean our first bout or our last bout, but to me, new girl tryouts are where it's at! Fresh faces, some excited, some nervous, but all hopeful. New feet in borrowed skates make their way around the rink, while they scope out the new territory and get a feel for what the sport is all about.

Interesting in trying out? If you are at least 21 years of age, come on down to United Skates Of America on Tuesday November 17th from 8:00-10:00 PM with a valid ID and insurance card (if you have it). Skates can be borrowed courtesy of the rink, but you MUST bring your own mouth guard. You can find one for a few dollars at Target, Modells or most other sports stores. The following equipment is also required in order for you to skate: helmet, wrist guards, knee pads and elbow pads. While we do have some extra equipment to lend out, the supplies are limited and will be given out on a first come first serve basis. So please get there early!

Although this is an all female derby league, men are always welcome and encouraged to join our already amazing staff of referees and volunteers. So guys, please do come and find out more about us.

Good luck everyone!
