Springtime brings new members!

At the beginning of each season, every WFTDA team must re-evaluate its rostered skaters to make sure their speed and skills are up to scratch. This spring, the Derby Darlins not only cleared all current skaters to play, but also welcomed three new full members to our ranks! Thanks to everyone who came out to help and congrats to Hits N’ Giggles, Miss Andry, and Rosie-Slamrock! Rosie and Giggles have made their first roster with The Kill Squad, and we can’t wait to see how well all three graduates do during the 2016 season!

If you’re thinking about joining our team, don’t hesitate to contact our Fresh Meat coordinator, Bicked Witch. She can answer whatever questions you have and let you know our practice schedules.
