The roller derby season is nearly upon us.
The Salt City Derby Girls will hold tryouts on Nov. 17 at their downtown Salt Lake City warehouse.
Once skaters pass tryouts, they become "fresh meat" and join one of the SCDG teams, the Bomber Babes, Death Dealers, Leave it to Cleavers or Sisters of No Mercy to keep developing their skills.
To prepare skaters for tryouts, women 18 must complete a training session. Registration information is available on the SLDGwebsite. I'd say, let the buyer beware!
