CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Cape Girardeau Roller Derby is recruiting skaters, referees, and non-skating officials to fill the roster for the upcoming 2017 season.
An open recruitment information event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on December 5 at the AC Brase Arena Building in Cape.
The event is free with no obligation to join and no skating or athletic experience is required.
CGRD is a flat track roller derby league for men and women ages 18 and up.
The club offers a training period during which new members learn basic skating techniques before joining veteran skaters on the track.
Adults interested in skating should bring a "boil-and-bite" mouth guard.
Limited loaner gear is available but those who already own skates are encouraged to bring them.
