The Brick House Betties invited women 18 years and over to try the sport of roller derby.

Brick House Betties holding introductory sessions to roller derby

Want to try roller derby? Join the Brick House Betties on any of these dates to see what roller skating and the dynamic sport of roller derby are about:

Sunday. Oct. 18 (9-10:30 a.m.), Monday, Oct. 19 (7:30-9 p.m.), Saturday. Oct. 24 (9-10:30 a.m.), and Monday, Oct. 26 (7:30-9 p.m.). These sessions and all team practices are held at the Cumberland Recreation Institute (2665 Dunsmuir Ave.); there is a $4.20 drop-in fee to the CRI per visit.

Wear athletic clothing and bring a water bottle, mouth guard, and a positive attitude. Women interested in skating with the Betties must be 18-plus. All skating levels welcome; no experience necessary. The team will teach you how to skate and basic roller derby skills such as how to stop, falling safely, backwards skating, jumping, and skating in a “pack.”

Need to borrow safety gear? An online form is available at the team’s Facebook Event to help organize the loan of gear on the recruitment dates. Required equipment includes a helmet, wrist guards, elbow and knee pads, and quad skates.

Keen on the sport but not sure if playing roller derby is for you? The Brick House Betties can connect you with the Coastal Call Monitors, the Island’s  crew of referees and non-skating officials.

 

The Brick House Betties are as much about fun as they are about competition. The team works hard on and off the track, and they always focus on having a good time. They are recruiting new skaters to this fun sport and invite you to try out roller derby. Questions? Contact the Betties team Facebook page or email info@brickhousebetties.com
