Be A Bandita! - The New Skater Intake
Our latest batch of intake skaters are just about to take their minimum skills assessment and we couldn't be prouder of how far they've come in such a short time. We have no doubt you'll be seeing some new faces donning the lavender in 2016!
We at HBB have been having a think about how this latest intake programme has gone and one of the main negatives we found was that potential new skaters were coming to us half way through the intake wanting to sign up. We don't want to turn anyone away who is thinking of taking up roller derby and so we are excited to announce that starting in February of 2016 we are going to be running a rolling intake! This means that you can start to become a roller derby star whenever you want; no waiting, no fuss! Just drop us a message via our firstname.lastname@example.org email or through our Banditas Facebook page to let us know you want to give it a go.
This isn't just for new roller derby players, we are always on the look out for referees and NSOs (both of which can be any gender) so if you want to be a part of the team but don't fancy skating on track still get in touch to let us know.
Sessions for new skaters will be held on Thursdays at Threeways Centre, Halifax between 8pm-10pm. These sessions are training sessions for the Bruising Banditas team too so you'll have experienced players to help you out as well as inspire you on the track. Each session will cost £5 and we have gear you can hire as long as you let us know what you'll need in your message to us.
