Over a dozen women turned out for Southshire’s first practice in our new (albeit still dirty and needing work) clubhouse!

Don’t Care Bear let the new skaters through stance, skating forward, skating backward, toe stop work, and even a couple falls. At the end we all got homework to help us build the core and leg muscles we’ll need for great strides.

For the remainder of February and all of March, practices are Thursdays and Sundays 8pm – 10pm at our clubhouse in the Holden-Leonard Mill on Benmont Avenue in Bennington. We welcome men and women to train as skaters for competition or officiating. If you’re interested in checking out a practice, RSVP to southshirerollerderby@gmail.com.
