BUNDABERG City Rollers Roller Derby League will have its official sign-on days at their new venue, the YMCA in Quinn St, this weekend.

The sign-on will run from 9am-noon on both Saturday and Sunday.

Club secretary Donna Bowman said they were excited to clinch a merger with the YMCA as their new training venue and that they were looking forward to a big year.

"We are seeking fresh meat to join this exhilarating and addictive sport and we will also have fresh meat intakes at training from 2.30-4.30pm every Sunday after February 12," Bowman said.

"We are seeking men, women and children to join as members, skaters, officials or just volunteers - there is something to suit everyone and this is an ideal inexpensive 'family' sport.

"Junior Roller Derby is non-contact and our coaches are nationally accredited with the Australian Sports Commission and hold current blue cards and senior first aid certificates.

"We encourage all senior and junior rollers, both male and female, to participate in and develop their skating skills in a fun and supportive environment at their own pace.

"While only women and juniors participate at competition level, Bundaberg City Rollers would also like to invite any male skaters who are interested in referee positions or interested in being part of a men's derby team (Merby) to drop in and check us out as well.

"If you are not sure what roller derby is about, we encourage you to come down and have a look."

More information is available on their website www.bundabergrollerderby.com.au or by calling Bowman on 0423 282467.
