Roller Derby Recruitment in Roseville





Roseville, CA -- Flood Water Roller Derby invites all people interested in skating to join the rising tide at a recruitment event on May 28 at the Placer County Fairgrounds in Roseville.

Roller derby is more than a sport - it's a lifestyle. Derby athletes commit to two or three practices a week, where they are trained by Shadow Soldier (Rena Garcia) of Roseville, arguably the most experienced and accomplished derby skater in the Sacramento area. The coaching team works with skaters of all levels, with one-on-one training guaranteed for even the most novice skater.

FWRD is committed to empowering women through athleticism, teamwork, competition and volunteerism. The women who practice together become a family, and together they build a life full of adventure and accomplishment.

The league is built from the ground up, with all skaters participating in running it, from serving on the board of directors to screen-printing jerseys. Since its inception in 2012, FWRD has secured an indoor practice space, is in the final stages of becoming a 501(c)3 nonprofit and is working diligently toward becoming a Women's Flat Track Derby Association league. This past season, FWRD traveled throughout the state to compete, and participated in numerous community events, including Hot Chili Cool Cars, Nascar races at the All American Speedway, Run Rocklin and the Berry Fest in Roseville.

 No matter your skill level, if you are interested in seeing what this life-changing sport is all about, come meet the Flood May 28 at a recruitment event at the Placer County Fairgrounds. Team members will offer skating tips and a free lesson from Shadow Soldier, with loaner gear available (please bring a mouthguard). Team members can answer all your questions about derby, and they'll even bring food!
