Wild fun on wheels

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

GET your game face on, Coffs Coast Derby is open­ing up their train­ing ses­sion to­mor­row.

This is your chance to check out the club, the friendly crew and see if this sport is some­thing for you.

This train­ing ses­sion is a be­gin­ner-level scrim­mage for newer skaters, an op­por­tu­nity to dip your toe into game it­u­a­tions without hav­ing the pres­sure of a real game.

“We re­ally of­fer some­thing for ev­ery­body,” women’s team co-cap­tain Katie “Do­mestiKT” Evans said.

“Roller derby is an in­clu­sive and phys­i­cally chal­leng­ing sport.

“The best part of cap­tain­ing my team is the em­pow­er­ment and sup­port we give each other ev­ery ses­sion.”

While roller derby is the main fo­cus of the club, it’s worth not­ing CCD also of­fers a great pro­gram called Quad Fit. This is all about fun and fit­ness on skates.

“Quad Fit has been in­cred­i­bly suc­cess­ful for us,” Evans said.

“Our goals are to have a com­pet­i­tive roller derby team but be­yond that we re­ally just want to get as many peo­ple en­joy­ing roller skat­ing as we can.

“Quad Fit is a great way for peo­ple to do this.”

The idea of hav­ing an open train­ing ses­sion is that ev­ery­one is wel­come to come along, see how the team trains and per­haps gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the train­ing of­fered.

Coffs Coast Derby is a co-ed league, with a men’s and women’s team, as well as of­fer­ing ju­nior devel­op­ment train­ing.

If you’d like to learn more about join­ing Coffs Coast Derby, watch a train­ing ses­sion and meet the coaches, then come along this Sun­day to Sportz Cen­tral from 4.30–5.30pm or email info@coff­s­coast derby.com.
