Junior Roller Derby calls for members

Mad Divas Junior Derby is looking for new members at a registration session at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 20, at Smoky Mountain Sk8way in Waynesville.

Mad Divas is an all female, flat-track, low-contact roller derby league specifically for girls between the ages of 12 and 17.

The registration event will include guest speakers as well as members of both the Mad Divas and The Blue Ridge Rollergirls, who will talk about what it means to be a derby girl, how to buy gear and how to sign-up and get started.

The Divas are an organization that strives to create a safe, fun and positive environment - where girls can be athletic, obtain new friendships and increase self confidence.
