Wanna Join a Funtastic Roller Derby Team? Tryouts Are in Yakima During February
If you haven't had any good exercise or social-distance socializing in a while, maybe it's time for you to try something new like trying out for a roller derby team!
I can't skate anymore because I have a broken hip from a car accident when I was a kid, but maybe someday I'll go watch one of the roller derby games in Yakima.
Before I tell you about your chance to join this Yakima roller derby team, let's review some burning roller derby questions that a ton of people have.
CAN YOU DIE FROM PLAYING ROLLER DERBY?
Nothing is 100% safe in life, but rest assured that it is EXTREMELY rare to die from roller derby injuries, although there was a lady in Texas who had pre-existing conditions.
IS ROLLER DERBY STILL A THING IN YAKIMA?
WHY DO WOMEN ONLY GET TO PLAY ROLLER DERBY?
Because they can, that's why! Next question!
