Any list of the most popular new year’s resolutions include such items as:

  • Become more fit
  • Make new friends
  • Lose weight
  • Learn new things
  • Make new friends

If any of these are on your list, we have great news for you: Roller derby can help you accomplish them. Even better news: You can learn how at our upcoming Open House/Recruitment Night at 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, in the Oswego YMCA Armory.

Note that while this recruitment seeks skaters for our adult league (women 18 years of age or older), men are more than welcome as well. We’re always looking for referees, non-skating officials and volunteers with any and all talents. The Jan. 16 event will feature more information on roller derby, details of its benefits and demonstrations of this amazing sport.

Think about starting your new year off on the right foot … in a skate … with an awesome league.
