Fresh Meat Clinic!

By May 26, 2012General

You’ve been to our bouts and thought “HEY! I could do that!”

You’ve been looking for a reason to dust off those old skates of yours.

You need some motivation to get off the couch.

You think you have what it takes to be a Cornfed Derby Dame… so prove it already!

Muncie’s own Cornfed Derby Dames will be hosting a CLINIC for new skaters and referees on SATURDAY, JUNE 9TH, 2012. The clinic will be held at Gibson Skating Arena from 10:00am – 12:00pm, and will cost $5.00 at the door. We will focus mainly on basic skating skills and the basic rules of roller derby.

NOTE: You must be 18 years of age or older to attend this clinic. We are a women’s league, so you must be female to be a Cornfed Derby Dame. Referees, however, may be male or female.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

– quad skates
– knee pads
– elbow pads
– wrist guards
– a mouth guard
– a helmet.

These items may be purchased locally at:
Gibson Skating Arena (Muncie)
