The league has expanded and is now offering training to both men and women interested in playing roller derby. 
Practices are between 1 to 1.5 hours long and will start August 4th. They will be every Sunday and Tuesday 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.
