Looking for something fun, new and exciting? Then get your derby on and become a Renegade!
Renegade Rollergirls of Tucson, a free roller-derby league, is looking for their next generation of roller girls.
Starting Monday May 16, there will be free skills and drills
practices every Friday and Monday throughout the summer for those interested, curious and wanting to become a renegade roller.
All females 18 and older are eligible to play, and experience is welcome but not necessary.
Membership, travel and a uniform are all free but skates, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards and a helmet are required to participate in practice. Don't have the required equipment? You're still welcome to come and meet the team.
R.R.O.T. also offers advice about finding gear and has limited gear available for loan—if notified ahead of time.
Practices are held every Friday and Monday from 7 to 9 p.m. through Friday, July 29. You join throughout the summer—but you'll get more out of it the sooner you join.
Practices are at 3525 E. Pima Street, located at a hockey rink attached to the parking lot at the corner of Pima and Palo Verde.
