Sugar Land’s own brand new women’s flat track roller derby team is now forming. This isn’t the old school roller derby you’ve seen in the past. They train derby athletes to compete according to the rules and guidelines set forth by WFTDA, the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
They are actively recruiting skaters, referees, and volunteers. Skaters must be female, 18 and up, and ready to train. Referees and volunteers must be 18 and up.
Their first practice is scheduled for mid-February. Yellow Rose Derby Girls (YRDG) will hold Meet-n-Greets, Monday, February 4 and February 11, at Fuddruckers, 11445 Fountain Lake Dr., Stafford, 7:30 p.m.-9 p.m. It will be an opportunity to ask questions and socialize with your teammates before hitting the track.
Also, a skate and gear consultant will be on hand to advise you on equipment. They want “zebras” too! Refs, that is. Their referee trainer will be able to tell you everything you need to know about how to wrangle derby girls!
