NEO Roller Derby seeking new recruites

UPublish story by Valerie Walker

Why should you join NEO Roller Derby? Well let me tell you why many of our league members joined.

Friendship: Need some new friends? Not only do we skate together, we party, garage sale, and snowboard together. You’ll be making new friends who are there to help you out and support you in your endeavors.

Exercise: You think roller derby isn’t a sport? Think again. Roller derby required balance, agility, endurance, and skill. Don’t think you’ll make the cut? Don’t worry, women of all shapes and sizes can play roller derby. You’ll find yourself getting stronger and leaner by the practice.

Whole body wellness: Many of our members are former smokers, food gorgers, or couch potatoes. Once you fall in love with roller derby, you’ll find that the desire to improve your game matters more to you than those cigarettes.

Community Service: Like to give back to the community? NEO does many charity events and all our proceeds from our bouts go to charity.

Kicking Ass: I’m not sure an explanation is necessary on this one. Where else can you take out girls on skates without having to apologize?

Sounds like a good time, right? Come see what NEO is all about. Skaters, referees, and Non-Skating Officials welcome. Saturday, September 29th from 2-4pm at our practice penthouse, 540 South Main Street in downtown Akron. You’ll see a mixed scrimmage, get derby information, and have a ‘skate date’ with a current NEO skater.
