Fresh Meat No More!

Last night, a small band of future teammates braved the slush and snow to pit themselves against a legendary challenge: the roller derby minimum skills test.

Not for the faint of heart, the minimum skills test is truly a measure of endurance, agility, determination and badassness. Beginning with (at least) 25 laps in 5 minutes, these fledgling flat track warriors must then jump cones, circle the track on one foot, give a whip, take a whip….and the list goes on.

Through countless trials and hardships untold, these brave souls have vanquished not only the test, but also 8 weeks of intense training with more experienced players such as The KrowEskimo Jo and other derby gurus. Congratulations to the latest graduates of Freshie Training: Holly de Haviland (Emily), Red Hot Gilly Pepper (Gillian), Lil’ Goon (Heather), Injured Spice (Lindsay), Orka, Robin and Sue. We can’t wait to see you out on the track at next scrimmage! Get your mouthguard in and those gaskets on, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!
