Welcome Fresh Meat – Hang In There!April 24th, 2012 by TnTina
In spite of some public transportation challenges, quite a bunch of people made it last Satuday to our Fresh Meat Day.
Freshies: we hereby officially welcome you to our league! Hope you liked it as much as we did. We would LOVE to see every single one of you at tomorrow’s training! Enjoy the journey to passing your minimum-skills-test and become a bout-ready derby girl, or….referee! Yes, we have had the pleasure in meeting several cool guys aspiring to get involved, too!
So, if all is well, you will learn the ropes as from tomorrow; it is going to be a bumpy ride, but a fun one! Hang in there.
You will have ups and downs – for sure – but the right attitude will get you there eventually. Hang in there.
You will be taught a lot of things and remember that everybody usually struggles with at least one aspect of roller derby. Whether that is falling, to give or receive hits and whips, or simply EVERYTHING – all it requires is to get out of your comfort zone and give it your all. Hang in there.
Trainers, advanced skaters and – not in the least – your fellow freshies will pull you through when needed. Feel free to ask for help and/or support. Just hang in there and don’t give up, so you can play alongside us in an upcoming bout!
