Derby doubles on opening night skate

by Morinville News Staff

The Sturgeon County Junior Roller Derby Association kicked off their 2015-2016 season with a registration night and opening skate Oct. 7.

Association President Terri-Ann Waschlik said she was pleased with the response at their initial skate. “We’re really happy with the turnout tonight,” she said. “We’ve had quite a few kids show up to try. We’re probably just over double the amount of kids we had last year.”

Waschlik went on to say if everyone who tried out Oct. 7 signs up, the association will have enough for two full teams this year.

The association was pleased to see a number of boys try out at the open house registration night. The group is open to boys and girls. Practices are Wednesdays from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Morinville Public School.
