Open recruitment: Calling all roller derby enthusiasts

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.

CGRD can be reached at or on Facebook under Cape Girardeau Roller Derby.
