So… You Want to Be a Roller Derby Girl?

Filed under: tacoma — sparkrobot @ 2:53 pm

I was sent this recently from a friend involved in the Dockyard Derby Dames league. If you’re interested in All-Girl, Flat-Track Roller Derby, Tacoma’s team is looking for YOU. Here’s their call to action:

The Dockyard Derby Dames (Tacoma’s ONLY all girl flat-track roller derby league) have scheduled tryouts! This means any girl, age 21 and over, that posses grit , determination, and derby desire can come out to our rink on Sunday December 3rd, from 10am to noon, and bid for a spot on our league. Tryouts will be held at the SkateN Station, at 133rd and Pacific Ave. Good exercise, great friends, and awesome fans are all things that are included in the derby experience, but we are also looking for dedicated women that can commit to our practice schedules and be positive team players. Prior experience is not necessary, but good attitudes, determination, and desire to learn are a must!

This will be the first tryout the league has held since March 2006 and open spots are expected to fill up very quickly again. If you attend try-outs you do not need equipment (i.e. helmet, skates, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, mouth guard, etc.), but if you have any, we encourage you to bring it along.

Pre-registration is a must, though, and can be done by contacting Elysia Smith at or Jennifer Hirst at . They are also doing a referee clinic for anyone who is interested in being a ref… same date, same time.

We look forward to seeing you ladies soon!
– your one and only Dockyard Derby Dames

These ladies are total rock stars in other cities with Flat-Track teams. What have you got to lose?
