Hereford Roller Girls in search of new recruits for 'noobie' programme
10:48am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in Sport
HEREFORD Roller Girls are on the look out for new skaters and referees to join their ‘noobie’ programme.
Roller Derby is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, and Hereford Roller Girls are the only team in the county.
They train three times per week in Herefordshire, and play against teams from across the country.
“Our noobie programme begins on September 3, and will run once a week every Tuesday for six weeks,” said team captain Dee Montague.
“Whether you are an experienced skater or a complete beginner, we’ll help you learn to skate and understand the basics of roller derby, with the aim of passing the minimum skills to progress to the next level of the sport, and on to joining HRG’s Horror Bulls, the travel team who compete.”
Hereford Roller Girls were formed in August 2011 and are racing up the European rankings.
A win for the 122-ranked Horror Bulls against the Lincolnshire Bombers ‘B’ team, who were ranked 48 places above, has seen the city club soar into the top 100 at number 98.
Kit is available to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis and booking is essential for all newcomers. For more details, go to herefordrollergirls.co.uk
