Keen to start a new sport this year? Watched Whip It and felt inspired
to become a Roller Derby queen? Now’s your chance to get involved!
Pirate City Rollers are starting their first Freshmeat course of 2016
with an Open Day on Sunday February 21st. During the course you’ll be
taught the basics of roller skating and the game of roller derby.
You’ll also become part of a great community of strong and athletic
people from all walks of life.
Come and watch a live roller derby game between two of the Pirate City
Rollers’ home teams before chucking on a pair of skates yourselves
afterwards. NO previous experience required!
Suitable for those keen to play, referee, or who’re just interested in
giving it a whirl. Gear will be available to hire, but you’ve got to
bring your drink bottles. Make sure to wear clothes that you’re
comfortable to do sport in.
Derby Depot will be there selling everything you need to play derby, with full pad sets from $60.
And we will be having survival drinks and Q&A straight after at The Hangar (104 Central Park Drive, i.e. about 200m down the road – just follow the crowd!) – a chance to talk about the Freshmeat course and joining the league.
