Roller derby recruiting as sport continues to grow
THE Airlie Beach Trashbags will hold a recruitment drive tonight at the Whitsunday PCYC.
The sport is one of the fastest growing in the world, and the region’s local club is searching for members.
You don’t need to know how to skate, as the program includes skating lessons before later progressing into technique, rules and strategies of roller derby.
Men and women, aged 18 and older, are invited to come along to the PCYC from 6.30pm.
“Derby has a great social aspect and you learn skills that you can go out and have fun with outdoors on the weekend too,” Trashbags newest member Brett Piccinelli said.
“I now skate along with my daughter while she rides her bike or scooter. It’s great for the whole family. We’re getting fit and having fun together.” The team will provide skates, helmets and safety equipment on the night to get you rolling.
