The Cincinnati Rollergirls and Cincinnati Battering Rams roller derby teams are pleased to announce the formation of the ’Nati Lites, a recreational program designed to further the competitive sport of flat track roller derby. The program is open to all women and men aged 18 and older of all skill levels — from beginners to retired derby skaters — who are interested in playing derby without the level of commitment and time demanded by CRG and CBR’s competitive travel teams.

Please join us for a 'Nati Lites orientation meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 20 at the Cincinnati Gardens (2250 Seymour Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45212). We’ll explain how we’ll run practices, hand out paperwork, give you instructions on signing up for WFTDA insurance and answer your questions. This is an informational meeting only — no gear is required.

For more details on the 'Nati Lites, visit www.cincinnatirollergirls.com/recruiting.
