LOCO Roller Derby is proud to announce that a Kitchener, Ontario chapter will be starting weekly practices on January 6, 2011. Join us for LOCO Roller Derby practices every Thursday evening from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Kitchener’s Queensmount Arena.
Even if you have never roller skated before, you are welcome to join! We will teach you how to roller skate for playing the sport of roller derby while educating you on the Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association (WFTDA) rules of modern flat-track roller derby. We will train you like any other roller girl using the same skills-development methods used by full-contact leagues, but focused on a low-contact style.
LOCO is not affiliated with the local WFTDA full-contact Tri-City Roller Girls
, however, we are big fans and will be volunteering at TCRG bouts in 2011 when they need us. We encourage you to check out TCRG for the full-contact WFTDA roller derby experience. LOCO Roller Derby is perfect for you if you are unable to commit to semi-professional roller derby league requirements, you are a “retired” competitive roller derby skater, or you simply want to learn the sport in a low-contact environment before moving up to play with the hard-hitters of competitive leagues! Whatever the case, LOCO’s focus is on fun, fitness and friendship with low contact, low costs, and lower commitment levels ideal for any aspiring roller skater!
Skaters must be female and 18 years of age or older. All skaters will be required to purchase insurance, and their own roller skates and equipment. $5 per night (or 10 practices for $40), and $5 per month is all it takes to get into roller derby in 2011 in Kitchener!
To sponsor LOCO Roller Derby or for any information about the league in general, contact our Board of Directors at firstname.lastname@example.org
LOCO Roller Derby will continue operations in London, ON with the exact same focus and format and can be reached at email@example.com
for practice information, or private, public and open scrimmage information as the London chapter is ready to play with any roller derby fresh meat, recreational, or rookie teams out there, with a reduced contact WFTDA ruleset and will continue to host open scrimmages each month.
Welcome, LOCO skaters in Kitchener!
