If you’ve felt like something has been missing from your life for the past couple of months, it was probably the absence of the Carolina Rollergirls. But, chin up! We’re back and getting ready for an exciting 2013 season. In fact, after recently having tryouts, we’ll soon be hitting the track with some new faces.
These might not be new faces but they are ready to hit the track on February 23!
“We just welcomed 6 skaters into our Fresh Meat class,” says Mora Manipulator, Training Director of CRG. “We can’t wait to start turning them into Carolina Rollergirls. And this season we hope to really boost our numbers by bringing in hopefuls throughout the season.”
A few of our bright new faces!
That’s right. If you think roller derby might be your calling, now’s your chance to give it a try. This season we’ll be opening our Thursday night practice sessions to CRG hopefuls. If you’re interested in playing roller derby, we strongly encourage you to come out from 8:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. every Thursday night at Jelly Beans at 10701 Common Oaks Drive in Raleigh and see if it’s right for you. The cost is $10 per practice or $25 for an entire month.
“It provides a great opportunity to come test out your skills, and through rolling tryouts eventually become a Carolina Rollergirl,” says Mora Manipulator. “With our returning skaters and our Fresh Meat class, we’re already off to an exciting start. Everyone is ready to work hard and make 2013-2014 an amazing season.”
We can't wait to see you there!
