New Skater Orientation Sunday January 24, 2016

Once a20150125_175151gain Southshire Roller Derby is hosting a new skater orientation night for people who are interested in learning to play the challenging game of flat track roller derby.  Join us at 6 p.m. Sunday, January 24, 2016.

We will loan you the gear you need (although we recommend purchasing and bringing your own mouth guard) including skates, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, and helmet. We’ll cover the basics of derby and talk about costs and time commitment.

Then we’ll get you on those skates and show you a bit about how to skate well and introduce you to our training program.

Our 2016 schedule is filling up and everyone on our league is involved in our bouts both home and away.

Attending our orientation is absolutely free and comes with an hour or more of roller skating after a short presentation and Q & A session. You must be 18 years of age or older to participate. Junior derby (ages 7 through 17) is coming soon!

RSVP to southshirerollerderby@gmail.com for directions and to give us an idea of what size skates and gear you require.
