Summer Open Tryouts

August 30, 2017
Cape Fear Roller Girls are seeking new recruits! CFRG welcomes competitive women from all walks of life who can dedicate the time and energy it takes to become a roller derby skater. You must be at least 18 years old to play roller derby. It certainly helps if you are already athletic or have skating experience, but it is not required. All you need is a positive attitude, an open mind, and the willingness to work your butt off, skate hard, and learn. To learn more about the experience of becoming a roller girl, check out this article.

Our Final Tryouts for 2017 will be held on August 30th at Scooters Skating Rink from 8:30-10:30 PM. Equipment will be available to borrow if you do not have your own. If you pass tryouts, you will enter in to our CFRG New Recruit Bootcamp where you will learn the skills necessary to become a Cape Fear Roller Girl. Follow our Facebook page for more information as details are announced.
