Ready to become one of the Betties? 
We will be starting our Fresh Meat intake again this August where the Betties will share with you everything you ever wanted to know about roller derby and more! No previous skating skills required! The program teaches you the basics from the ground up! The league has expanded and is now offering training to both men and women interested in playing roller derby, either as a skater and/or a referee. 
Practices are between 1 to 1.5 hours long and will start August 2nd. They will be every Sunday and Tuesday of each week. August practices will consist of off-skate conditioning and are structured to help prepare you for the on-skate training portion of the program.
Check out the FB event invite for further information and to save to your calendar.
