The Sydney Roller Derby League (SRDL) is currently scouting for new members. An eight-week Fresh Meat Derby Skills program will be held at Sydney Boys High School from Sunday, October 18, to get beginners in shape for next year’s season.
“The Fresh Meat program is the introductory course for novice and beginner skaters wanting to join SRDL. It’s essential that correct skills, posture and safety are learned from the start for anyone wanting to be a derby girl,” SRDL spokeswoman Melissa Iverach said.
“Our Fresh Meat program provides a solid foundation for learning more advanced skating and derby skills in the future. One of the first thing girls will learn is how to fall safely and we also focus on core strength which is needed to fall well and recover quickly.”
SRDL is also looking for referees. “Although it’s a women’s sport, men can join too as referees,” Iverach said.
“We encourage anyone who would like to be a referee to come along to our Fresh Meat program.”
The SRDL Derby will take on the Newcastle Roller Derby on Saturday, November 28 at Sydney Boys High School.
