Junior roller derby recruitment Sept. 8, 20 in Oswego

OSWEGO –Girls ages 10 to 17 interested in playing one of the fastest-growing sports in the country are invited to Port City Roller Derby’s junior derby recruitment events Sept. 8 and 20.

Two open house and recruitment events will take place in the Oswego YMCA Armory, corner of West First and Utica streets — noon on Sept. 8, and 7 p.m. on Sept. 20. Kids are encouraged to bring any parents or guardians with questions.

Port City’s Lagoon Squad Junior Derby team started competition this year, offering fun, fitness and friendship to those who joined.

The organization is planning its next season of bouts starting this fall, with practices geared toward all levels — including those who have never skated before.

Port City Roller Derby is produced by Oz Roller Girls Inc., a member-run nonprofit organization dedicated to athletic competition, empowerment and supporting its community.

PCRD always seeks skaters, refs and other volunteers for its adult (18 and over) and juniors (ages 10 to 17) teams, and will provide training.
