About This Event
Springfield Roller Derby is a hosting a Buddy System Night, giving anyone who has ever wanted to try Roller Derby the opportunity to put on skates and give it a shot! Everyone aged 18 years and older is welcome to attend. Buddy system night is not just for skaters either, we are also recruiting skating officials, non-skating officials, and volunteers!
The night will consist of stations testing basic skating skills, an overview of what roller derby is, what it means to be a part of our league, and a short scrimmage to give everyone a chance to see what game-play is like, up close. Everyone will be paired with a skating veteran, so you can spend the evening gaining first-hand knowledge of what this sport is about, and how it works.
Don’t have the gear? Not to worry. We have plenty of loaner gear for you to use. All you need to bring is yourself.
