GARDEN STATE ROLLERGIRLS TO HOLD RECRUITING EVENT ON SATURDAY, JULY 27TH

North Arlington, NJ - July 1, 2019 -- The Garden State Rollergirls (GSR) to grow their roller derby team. 

GSR will be holding a First-Skate event for prospective "Fresh Meat" players on Saturday, July 27 at the Inline Skating Club of America in North Arlington. 

The team is looking for skaters with or without experience. Those who are new to the game will learn the basics under the guidance of two of our charter team members: BlackEye Betty and Diem Zee. 

"I attended 'First-Skate' in 2018, thinking that I would remember how to skate from elementary school. I didn't, " said #Bossbabality. "However, Garden State Rollergirls taught us everything we needed to know, and now I jam for the Brick City Bruisers."  

There are also opportunities available for those who prefer not to strap on a pair of rollerskates.  The team is always looking for Non-Skating Officials to help with scorekeeping, penalty tracking and more. 

"I hope that people who come to our 'First-Skate' event will be able to experience the amazing community that roller derby has to offer," says Betty. 

Anyone interested in attending the First-Skate event must be 18 or older and should email gsrrecruit@gmail.com to sign up. The cost is $10 per person and loaner gear can be made available upon request. Participants should be geared up and ready to hit the track by 9:30 a.m.

Let's talk about our rights and our freedoms.
