Southshire Roller Derby looking for new members
Southshire Roller Derby closed the 2018 season at 2-4, pulling together wins against Shoreline Roller Derby's Belladonnas in September and the Mid-Hudson Misfits in August.
New Southshire Roller Derby President Terry Downey says: "We're so excited and proud of the success we had this past season, and can't wait to hit the track again this summer. We're looking forward to meeting some new people both on the track and in the stands."
Southshire needs new skaters, officials and volunteers age 18 and over. No skating experience is necessary as complete training from basic skate skills to advanced strategy is provided twice weekly year-round. Adults (over 18) of all genders are welcome. Attendees of recruitment night will have the opportunity to skate, so wear comfy clothes and bring some water.
RSVP to Southshirerollerderby@gmail.com with your shoe size to help with advance organization of loaner gear.
If you'd love the derby experience but aren't sure that skating is for you, come on down anyway. There are plenty of very important ways to be part of the league without ever strapping on a pair of skates. If you have a child that is at least 6 years of age and under 18 who would like to try roller derby, please attend our Junior Skater orientation Jan. 9 at 5 p.m.
