Junior Roller Derby Recruitment

May 23, 2015

Denver Roller Derby (DRD) is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose goal is the promotion of the sport of roller derby and developing the skills and athleticism of skaters. The league’s Junior team, called “Major Turbulence”, will be hosting a recruitment event for new skaters on Saturday May 23 at 10 am. Both girls and boys ages 6-17 are invited to play this exciting sport! Recruitment will take place at the league’s practice facility named “The Glitterdome” (3600 Wynkoop St. Denver, CO 80216).

For the safety of the skaters they are required to wear protective gear on the track at all times and there are strict rules governing legal zones of contact. Skaters should bring a mouth guard (basic ones available at Wal-Mart, Target and sports equipment stores) and any other required skating gear they have (skates, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, and helmet). Some loaner equipment is available.

If you know a young person who wants to gain confidence, feel empowered, and learn teamwork, roller derby is a sport that encompasses all of these values. And don’t worry if you’re not a great skater–we will teach you the basics!

If you plan to attend the recruiting event or have any questions please email jrderby@denverrrollerderby.org.
