Attention Northshore mommas, do you like dressing up? Do you imagine yourself violently pushing your way through a crowd of people walking too slowly ahead of you? Do you like raising money to help cute little animals? If you answered yes to most of these questions, then I have an awesome announcement for you!
Introducting; the Lethal Ladies Northshore Roller Derby team. Yes, Roller Derby..on the Northshore. I found the Leathal Ladies on Facebook after Curt Sprang from WGNO News with a Twist did a news piece on them a few weeks ago. I found it very interesting and thought some other mommas would like to get involved.
The Northshore Roller Derby League is an opportunity for southeast Louisiana ladies to be a part of a sport that has been empowering women since the 1940’s. It’s Mission is to provide a place for all women to challenge and strengthen themselves physically and mentally through the sisterhood of roller derby, while supporting the community through volunteering and raising money for local charities.
“We are a family friendly, yet fun loving team. We love playing roller derby and our team is a tight knit sisterhood. We take pride in being strong empowered women and we aim to empower other women, both on and off of the track”
If you want to see The Lethal Ladies in action, their next bout (game) is at the Castine Center in Mandeville, Saturday September 30 against the CENLA Derby Dames. It is the last game of the season and the theme is “GLOW – Gorgeous Ladies On Wheels” like the women wrestlers. Everyone is strongly encouraged to dress up in their best wrestling attire. There will be a costume contest at the end of the bout!
The Lethal Ladies will be having a new recruit class starting in mid October for all women interested in roller derby. For more information about joining the team, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
