Junior Roller Derby Meeting & Pizza Party

Learn about Savannah’s new league for girls ages 10-17,

2-4 p.m. May 13 Garden City Gym

The Savannah Junior Roller Derby is seeking coaches and young skaters to take the new team to the next level!

The SJRD will host a Meeting & Pizza Party to discuss our immediate goals at 2-4 p.m. May 13 at the Garden City Gym, 160 Priscilla Thomas Way (just behind Groves High School.) Pizza, beverages and some skating. The cost will be $5 per child (cash) at the door and parents must sign a liability waiver for their children to skate. Use of rental skates and some protective gear will be available at no cost.

The event takes place the day after the Savannah Derby Devils’ season opener starting at 5 p.m. at the Savannah Civic Center on May 12.

The SJRD is for girls ages 10-17 who want to learn to skate and play roller derby and for adults who want to teach skating, positive team competition and sportswomanship through a sport that reflects empowering, strong images of women of all body types. We would like to start holding weekly private practices at the Garden City Gym and signing on dues-paying members.

While the SJRD operates under the umbrella of the Savannah Derby Devils women’s flat-track roller derby league, the SJRD is looking for a regular coach(es)/trainer(s) with skating experience who can plan and lead weekly practices based on JRDA training materials available at http://juniorrollerderby.org/trainers.html .
