The Brick House Betties are inviting women 18+ years old of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels out to the CRI in Cumberland on Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for their “Fresh Meat Day.” It will be followed by a roller derby social at the Waverley Hotel to watch some derby and meet the girls.
The Brick House Betties are a group of women from the Comox Valley that consists of professionals, students, mothers and artists who all have at least one thing in common – their love of the sport that helped transform them into their best self.
“Roller derby is a sport where anyone can step up and push themselves and become great, and if you are willing to get out of your comfort zone and push yourself you will succeed and meet your goals,” a Brick House Betties spokesperson said.
“Roller derby is a great way to get or stay in shape, have fun, boost your confidence and meet amazing people. The Betties welcome everyone to join their family and all that they ask in return is that you bring your best self with you.”
So, if this sounds like something you want to be a part of then come on out and meet the Betties! All you need to bring is quad skates, safety gear (helmet, elbow/wrist/knee pads and a mouthgaurd) and a positive attitude.
If you don’t want to commit to buying gear just yet, then contact the Betties in advance and they will set you up with some loaner gear. For information and to contact the Betties, check out www.http://brickhousebetties.com/ orhttps://www.facebook.com/BrickHouseBetties.
