Mankato Area Derby Girls are looking for skaters and zebras (refs) to join the amazing sport of roller derby, with a group of dedicated and active women! We want to grow our team to include enough skaters for 2 teams or split up into home teams to skate against each other! Who knows? The more, the better, we say!
*Informational meeting is on May 4th at the Mankato Family YMCA, with a run through of gear, basic skill and skater expectations.
If you are interested in joining the Mankato Area Derby Girls here is your chance to learn what it takes to join our ranks.
~Cost of entire session is $30
~First on skates practice is May 11th.
~FM training will continue until July 20th with skater test outs.
~Skaters are female only and refs are female or male
~Every week thereafter fresh meat skaters will attend practices on Sundays from 3 PM – 5 PM.
~Must be 18+ to join our team
*Required Gear: Full-backed helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, mouth guard and quad roller skates (no inline). Purchase roller derby or skate boarding quality gear. Don’t buy a cheap set of pads and then find out they aren’t going to cut it. Your body will thank you.
For used gear check out Twin Cities Derby Equipment Exchange.
At the end of the session you will be tested on basic and derby specific skating skills and WFTDA rules, before being asked to join our ranks.
