Boot Camp week is over and the league is proud of the girls who came out to skate. We are very excited for this group of Fresh Meat as they are showing determination and a positive attitude; two qualities that every roller-girl needs to survive this sport. For the next couple months these ladies will be practicing and honing their skills to past the WFTDA minimal requirement test. Once these ladies are able to able to crossover, stop properly, weave through cones and demonstrate how to hit an opposing player safety they will have the chance to pick their very own derby name. The name that you will be yelling from the side-lines to encourage to take out that jammer or jump that apex.
