After a very successful season 8, the Cedar Valley Push-Up Brawlers Roller Derby team is gearing up for their next home season. The team is looking for potential skaters and referees to be a part of this fun, competitive team.
An informational recruitment meeting will be Sunday, August 26 at 4:00 pm at Gateway Park in Cedar Falls. This meeting will be an opportunity for those interested in joining the team to learn how the training process is conducted, meet teammates and ask questions, and have the opportunity to practice skating. Attendees who presently own skates are encouraged to bring them. People are also invited to stop by the Brawlers tent at Cedar Valley Pridefest on Saturday, August 25 and watch a demo bout at the main stage at 5:15 pm.
Anyone who identifies as female and is 18 years or older are encouraged and allowed to skate with the Brawlers, though anyone over 18 may train to be a part of the referee crew or non-skating officials. The league also has a junior team, the MadCatters, who will be starting their next session soon for those who are interested in the sport but are underage. Their recruitment meeting is Sunday, August 26 at 1:00 pm.
