Press release –
This is not your mother’s roller derby

bostonjuniorderby-logoRoller Derby is a women’s sport that fosters empowerment, inspires self-confidence, and encourages fitness—and now self identifying girls ages 7–17 can experience just how satisfying the game can be.

Registration for Boston Junior Roller Derby, the area’s only junior level, flat track roller derby league, is now open for the fall 2015 session, Sept. 12 through Dec. 19.

Twice-a-week practice is held in the Boston Derby Dames home base in Lynn, Mass. on Tuesdays, 6–7:30pm, and Saturdays, 9–11am. [71 Linden Street] Cost is $100 for the session plus $15 for insurance (financial aid is available).

A true athletic sport, roller derby is a game played on quad roller skates under Junior Roller Derby Association (JRDA) rules and regulations. This safe, serious sport builds strength and agility, and teaches girls about teamwork within a supportive structure, as BJD is taught by a coaching staff of athletes who strive to be encouraging role models to all girls.

If you know a girl who could benefit from a positive environment and thrilling athleticism—one who can skate without holding onto a wall or an adult—Boston Junior Roller Derby will teach her derby foundations such as safe falls and stops, strong form, proper skating habits, and the most important skill: having fun on skates.
