wow. there sure are alot of girls wanting to roller derby ! Just came back from the information sesssion, sat on the grass and talked about whats expected of us, what we can expect and how to prepare for boot camp.
i can’t really describe how excited i am, i’m sure theres alot of girls in a similar position at the moment. i just can’t wait to get started. It seems like i’ve been waiting forever for something like this to come along.
i look forward to getting to know some other freshies. right now i really have no clue on anyone elses ability and where i fit in. There seems to be a huge number of girls that want to join the VRDL this year. This leads me to believe there will be a little bit of competion to get a spot. This is a scary thought seeing as right at this moment i can only really skate in a circle.
So my check list for bootcamp is :
learn to do at least one stop, buy some decent knee pads, invest in another helment for my abnormally large skull/hair and stop stressing out.
I’ve decided that if i don’t make it this round i’m not going to be too heart broken. whatever happens i’ll stick with it and hopefully make it in sometime in the next 12 months. either way i really am just enjoying having a good skate !
