Put on your helmets, lace up your skates and roll along with the Charlottesville Derby Dames; then find out what Blue Star Families of Central Virginia is doing to support the troops and those who love them.

Many thanks to WHTJ and Terri Allard for having the Dames at the premiere party for the new season of Charlottesville Inside-Out! We had a blast!

Eat at the Blue Moon Diner on Fridays in October, and 10% of the proceeds will go to a fund to benefit injured skaters!

We know you love to see those hard hits in Derby, but once in a while, someone takes home more than a bruise… The Injured Skater fund provides assistance to skaters who need help with medical bills or other expenses incurred due to a derby injury. We support our skaters on and off the track!

Show your Derby Love, eat some delicious food, and help the Dames you love get well and stay well!

Come by every Friday in October, and bring your friends!

WANTED: SKATERS . . . REFS . . . VOLUNTEERS . . . NON-SKATING OFFICIALS . . .
The Charlottesville Derby Dames need YOU! We are looking for all levels of skaters and non-skaters to join our team.

Women AND Men over the age of 19 are invited to attend our next open Fresh Meat practice from 7-9pm on Wed., October 6 at the Charlottesville National Guard Armory . Fresh Meat practices are a no contact/no hitting skating practice for our newest members.

Can’t skate? That’s ok: veteran Dames and our Fresh Meat coach will be on site to teach you. We’ll even provide all of the equipment you need to practice with us. And your first Fresh Meat practice is FREE! Subsequent practices are $5 each.

DO YOU ALREADY INLINE SKATE? If so, bring your skates and talk to our referees about joining the Dames as a ref. Reffing is open to both men and women; guys, this is a great way to get involved in roller derby!

Act fast because our next Fresh Meat cycle is open only through the month of October. Attend any (or all) of the following practices to qualify as Fresh Meat with the Dames. Once this cycle closes, you will not have another opportunity to join the Dames until January 2011.

FALL 2010 FRESH MEAT OPEN PRACTICES (all at the Charlottesville National Guard Armory):

October 13, 2010 – 7-9pm
October 20, 2010 – 7-9pm

Come dressed to work out (bring a water bottle or sports drink because you’re going to sweat!). Most of all, though, come ready to have fun!

Fresh Meat Recruitment Closes at the End of July!

December 21st, 2010 | 0 comments

–June 5, 2010

Have you always wanted to skate derby? We would love to have you! But, for the safety of our new trainees (aka Fresh Meat), we need to do a bit of population control. We’ve realized that we can do better training and have more fun if we bring in new skaters as a group, and help them build the skills they need together. For that reason, we will be accepting new skaters at Fresh Meat practice until the end of July, and then closing recruitment for a couple months.

What does this mean? If you’re desperate to be a Dame, show up at Fresh Meat practice at the Charlottesville Armory at 7pm on either Wednesday July 21st or 28th. If you can’t make it then, you’ll have another shot to come out and join us in a few months. Just keep watching this site for updates. And… if you’re just dying to get on skates, remember that you can skate at Carver Rec center or at the rink in Staunton in the meantime. Questions? Get in touch! contact@charlottesvillederbydames.com
