I always wanted to try roller derby and searched Facebook for roughly 2 months, looking into different teams.
I finally gained the courage to go and watch SCRD in one of their training sessions and fell in love. I signed up and haven’t looked back since.
I didn't know how to skate at all and was very nervous when I first started, but the girls were so patient in teaching me the basics of skating. As the weeks went on, my fitness and confidence increased and it feels so heart-warming to be part of such a great team. We've become a big family, with training every week to having social events outside of roller derby. This year I am now training twice a week and feel so confident in myself and in my skating and look forward to what this year brings.
My advice would be just to give it a shot, you honestly will not regret it!
