Rock Coast Rollers hold 'fresh meat' tryouts Nov. 3-4
Northport — Do not mind getting a little bruised? Feeling the need to release your alter ego? Looking to participate in a sport that is as tough as you?
Then try out for the Midcoast’s flat track Roller Derby team the Rock Coast Rollers.
The Rock Coast Rollers are looking for its newest batch of "fresh meat" for the hip-thrashing, booty-blocking that is roller derby. The tryouts will be Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 3-4 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the gymnasium at the fitness center at Point Lookout.
All women ages 18 and older may participate.
Not sure you quite have what it takes? You do not know how to skate? You have not been on skates in 20-plus years? Experience is not necessary. The Rollers will teach the basics and build a skater from there.
"Even if you're just thinking about it, come and join us for either afternoon and show us what you've got," said Quincy McCarthy, of the Rollers. "If you have gear and skates, bring ‘em along. If not, RCR will have skates and protective gear for you to borrow."
Men also can be involved as referees and officials.
