What Made You Join Roller Derby?

Any Advice For Girls Interested In Joining?
Yes, it’s some new and different and sometimes we may not be certain about what we are getting ourselves into. The cost of starting up would be steep for some due to the gears and equipment. But you never know your capabilities or love and passion for something until you really give it a go. Don’t hold back yourself with things like the money for the skates or time to practise. Just come! You don’t have to buy skates immediately and you can always join us to get a feel of how it would be like. When you want to buy all the equipment, ask and read more on them because when you do that, you will only need to spend once, and these things would last you for quite sometime. If you were to think long term, it’s not financially taxing. Only the first part of getting them. 🙂 Anyway, the joy, passion, love and fun that you get out of playing derby would make up all cost you had to spend. That’s how you should look into it.
