Rotorua's roller derby league, the Sulphur City Steam Rollers are recruiting new members and we invite you to attend our Info Night & Skate With Us session!

We are looking for dedicated, committed and enthusiastic adults to train as Skaters, Referees and Non-Skate Officials in our competitive league.

Often described as 'rugby on skates', roller derby is a very physical sport that abides by a heavy set of rules created by long-standing organisation 'Women's Flat Track Derby Association' based in the USA. There are around 30 leagues in New Zealand and member numbers are increasing all the time.

Even if you have never been a fan of team sports before, if you love skating (or loved it the last time you skated when you were a kid!), you'll love roller derby!

This info session will include:
- Brief demonstration by SCSR skaters of how the game is played; how to score points, and legal hitting zones.
- Quick talk about how you can join and a Q&A session.
- Skate With Us session where you can get some skates on (see below for disclaimer) and get a taste for derby.

While the Steam Rollers are an 18+ league, we welcome those of all ages to attend this night. Supervision is requested for those under 16 years of age as it can get pretty rough on the track and we don't want to run anyone over!

Entry Fee (on the night):
$5 per adult*
$2 for those under 18 years of age
*Adult entry fee includes skate and gear hire if you choose to have a go.

Our skate and gear supply is limited and we may not get everyone on skates in one night. Don't worry if you miss out, you will be able to attend a second session at the same time on Monday 21 September.
