Invermere roller derby off to a skating start

An update on the Invermere roller derby team

The Invermere Roller Derby ladies took their first steps towards true team gaming when they held their first ever practice on May 1 at the Invermere Curling Club.

The ladies practiced skating drills and took a few falls in the beginning, but coach Chris “Meathammer” Corey has a positive outlook on the future of the budding team, which is already described as “promising”.
