Meet and Greet: ONE OF US! ONE OF US!
Skaters, Referees, Non Skating Official wanted!

Thursday, January 26th, SO DERBY will host a meet and greet for anyone interested in learning what the empowering world of roller derby is all about and what you need to join!

Come watch a practice, meet skaters who have recently gone through our fresh meat program and ask ALL THE QUESTIONS!

In our 12 week comprehensive training program you will learn the basics of all the skills needed to skate competitively from dedicated coaches who have over eight years of experience.

When you join you will train with a group of new skaters who are also new to derby! You develop bonds, learn new skills and discover what it takes to be an athlete in Southern Oregon’s only WFTDA league. As your skating progresses, you learn the rules of the game and you will be safely integrated into drills and practices with our veteran skaters.

We really cannot wait to meet you! Please contact us at to RSVP for the first Meet and Greet of 2017.
