If minimum participation is not reached derby school will be cancelled so please bring your friends and don’t be intimidated! From derby school training member and Blue Ridge Rollergirl All-Star Kayla Wolhart aka Pocahotmess aka Messy:
“We were all there at one time, learning to skate can be intimidating, but going back to the rink every week with a supportive group of newbies can be a life-changing experience. In roller derby, these people become your teammates and support network.”
