Roller derby looking for new recruits

The Westside Roller Sports roller derby league is holding a Skat-A-Thon and Recruitment Fest on Saturday, June 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the National Guard Armory in Hillsboro, 828 N.W. 28th Ave.

The event benefits both Westside Roller Sports roller derby teams, the LadyHawks, the women’s team, and Westside Derby Brigade, the junior team.

The Recuitment Fest invites all ages and skill levels, from beginners to advanced. No skating or rollery derby experience is necessary, though participants should be advised

that above the age of 12 roller derby is a full-contact sport.

The junior skaters participating in the Skat-A-Thon complete laps over the three hours, and sponsors donate based upon the number of laps completed. All proceeds fund derby amateur cards and the team’s travel expenses.

The Westside Roller Sports league includes opportunities for women, men and juniors. For more information, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 503-332-7466.
