MedCity Roller Derby hosts new recruits boot camp

(ABC 6 News) – The MedCity Roller Derby team held an informational meeting Tuesday evening for anyone interested in joining the team or becoming a referee.

Those who attended were informed about the requirements and practice dates. They were also allowed to try on equipment to see what gear they will need to purchase and even got to skate around a little bit.

Team captain “Pirate Queen” Tamara Tomfohrde says the recruiting events are key to keeping their team going.

“We’re low on numbers because of COVID, injury, and just time spent in the sport. People get burnt out or injured. So, it’s great seeing new faces and getting some new talent and expanding our league,” Tomfohrde said.

There is one more information session coming up on October 13.
