High speed roller derby at the Sooke Community Hall. Practices are Fridays froms 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.. No experience necessary.

Roll over Beethoven… here comes Sooke Roller Derby!

Roller derby fans gather at the Sooke Community Hall

Welcome to 2015 and a brand new opportunity to join the adrenaline pumping Sooke Roller Derby at Sooke Community Hall.  The effort is led by Zea Guest, a.k.a. ‘Buff Naked’.  Fresh recruits are more than welcome!  The delightful sport had a run at it last year, but Guest is hoping this new year will really get things rolling.  Players need to be 19 and over, and the training will build a high level of fitness, bonding and team play that  takes place every Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“Roller Derby is a fast paced, contact sport empowering women of all ages, shapes and sizes. There are 126 amateur roller derby leagues in Canada,” Guest said. “31 of which are here in BC.  That number is constantly growing” she stated.

Looking for fresh meat Guest is attempting to keep costs low, and the practices consistent.  No experience is required but the athletic demands of the sport are gradual and rewarding.  This fast-paced contact team sport requires speed, strategy and endurance.
