Got What It Takes To Be A Roller Girl?
All of us here are HUGE fans of our local A’Salt Creek Roller Girls, who introduced us to the extremely cool sport of Roller Derby. It’s a sport that has gone through lots of revolutions and revivals over the years. Modern day roller derby is an all-female, full-contact sport on quad skates – the brutality of rugby meets the grace of gymnastics. Want to test the waters and see if it’s something you might enjoy – but not sure how? This weekend, something cool coming up:
A’Salt Creek Roller Girls present Derby 101 – a skate, ref, and derby clinic. Happens January 15, at the Industrial Building at the Fairgrounds. Kind of a bootcamp, where potential “fresh meat” can get a lot of knowledge from the ACRG skaters, coach, and referees. For more info, visit the Roller Girls website, Facebook, or the event RSVP.
Runs 9am – 8:30pm. Must be 21, and bring equipment – they have a limited supply of loaner stuff, you can call Jina at 277-0139, or Melanie at 797-9078 to get some more info.
