JANUARY 14- ORIENTATION FRESH MEAT AND GREET AT EL MATADOR
This is your chance to take your life to the next level!
Join the Little City Rollergirls for dinner and a presentation on why you should take that step!
We will have the back room at El Matador in Johnson City, TN!
We have these orientation dinners a few times a year before starting the fresh meat training bootcamp to give those interested in joining the league a chance to learn more about the league, what’s expected of member, exactly how the training works, and more about these amazing people.
There is absolutely NO PRESSURE to join! We welcome everyone to come, hang out for dinner and our presentation. We would love to have you, but there is ABSOLUTELY NO OBLIGATION!
We’re not picking up the tab, but we will give you all the tools you need to play roller derby and learn more about what you are capable of.
This is not a training camp, that starts on January 15 at the Johnson City Family Skate Center!
JANUARY 15 - LITTLE CITY ROLLERGIRLS FRESH MEAT BOOTCAMP BEGINS!
