Renfrew County Roller Derby began when a new player (Fresh Meat) found that it was difficult for her to play simply because she lived too far away from the nearest derby league. Add distance, work, life, time, and the expense together and it just wasn’t an option. There definitely would not be enough interest in one small town to form an entire league but if you made your plea to the entire county, surely there would be enough people to play? That call was answered.
Although we’re still looking for skaters, coaches, refs, and non-skating officials, we now have a large group of girls that come from every corner of Renfrew County each week to get together to practice, learn rules, strategies, and most importantly, have a great time together while getting an amazing workout!
If you’re interested in being involved in roller derby and live in Renfrew County, now is the perfect time to join. Most of us had no prior experience so we are all still learning and developing our skills together in order to pass our minimum skills testing. Everyone must pass this testing before we can start playing.
